    I think I might try this.
    Another sherried single malt I like a lot, although it can't match the proof and "sherri-ness" of A'bundadh, is Tomatin 18.

    Tomatin 18. Thanks for that. Another one to look for.
    He made himself another drink and thought how much better the Perrier was than anything else you could put in whisky... Hemingway

    Re: Aberlour A'bundadh?

    From a price perspective the Tomatin 18 is a winner - you can find the 18 from the $mid-50s, and the Tomatin 12 in the mid to upper $20s. While the 18 isn't in the same league as the A'Bunadh, it has more going on than one might expect for such an affordable entry into 18 year whiskies. There is also a the Tomatin Decades with Whisky from the 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, and 00s. I've seen it for around $100 or so and I've tasted it. I was impressed. Again these special whiskies can get very pricey very quickly and this one is sort of reasonably priced.

    Re: Aberlour A'bundadh?

    One of my favorites when i could get it for $60, but at $90 I would rather have two bottles of 4RSB. I would certainly rather get several Aberlours instead of the Garrison $160, even though we share the same last name.

    The occasional batches of Abunadh gets reported as sulphur infected

    So beware if you don't like that. If you don't mind sulphur or can't taste it don't worry

    Tomatin 18yo is one of the greatest 18yo OB's out there

    I really like this one. It does get better with a little water. Aberlour is one of my favorite brands for the money.

    Re: Aberlour A'bundadh?

    I have a couple of bottles of Batch #6 - anyone had some of the early batches like this one? I'm not a fan of sherried scotches, but from time to time they hit the spot. I don't want to open one because I still have 90% of a bottle of an earlier Macallan cask strength, and that's enough sherry for the next year or so, but I'd like to know if the early ones were consistently good.

    Re: Aberlour A'bundadh?

    Recently passed on a couple of batches of the Aberlour A'bunadh (38, 41) at $69 but now thinking maybe I should give this a try. Any thoughts on either of those batches?
    That yella whiskey runnin' down my throat like honey dew vine water and I took another slash…

    Stay away from batch 41 - reports say it is very high in sulphur - probably the worst one bottled to date.
