A'bunadh bottle batch No. 27

A'bunadh is a cask-strength[1] single malt whisky from the Aberlour Distillery in Scotland.[2] Though it has no age statement, it is released in limited run batches, each batch carrying a unique number on its label. Each batch of this whisky is blended from barrels ranging from 5 to 25 years old.

A'bunadh is exclusively aged in Spanish oak Oloroso sherry butts[1]. A'bunadh is not chill filtered.

The name a'bunadh is described as the Scottish Gaelic for ''the original',[3] though is possibly a misspelling of am bunadh, meaning 'the origin'.[4]
