Aberlour a'bunadh is a non chill-filtered Single Speyside Malt Scotch Whisky coming straight from the cask at 120 proof. Put a wee skosh of water in her and she goes into a wonderful aromatic pirouette. Lots of malt sweetness washed in heather flowers, hints of the sherry cask, and just a slight nod to the smoke and peat.
The taste follows the nose very closely and has a rich buttery flavor and consistency that is so good. I do declare that even that old reprobate, Mr Bunghole his own self, would find this one has some merit............nah, that is too much to hope for.
As for me, well I would as lief give up my crawlin tractor as my a'bunadh, I would walk a mile in your shoes for a sip of my a'bunadh, I would paint your house for a sip of my a'bunadh, I would quit bull-shitting for a full half day for a sip of my a'bunadh, I would take a sip of Old Crow for a sip of my a'bunadh.
Vive Le a'bunadh! (How's that for mixing metaphorical, and real, languages?). See how a sip of a'bunadh puts one on the path to ridiculousness.........ah, me lads and lassies, I live in the ridiculous, only rarely venturing out of the slime, er, ah, I mean, only rarely venturing into the sublime.
Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rage at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light. - Dylan Thomas
