Whisky Novice Looking for Something Similar to Aberlour A'bunadh
I should start this post by confessing that I am somewhat of a whisky novice. I don't have an overly delicate palate and I haven't got the greatest sense of smell. Nonetheless, I know what I like and I'm always on the lookout for new things; I signed up for a tasting sample service and buy a bottle every couple of weeks or so (or when budget will allow).
But let me get to the point. Out of all the samples I was sent there was one that stood out heads and shoulders above the rest - Aberlour A'bunadh, Batch #40 (60%). It is, in my opinion, simply stunning. I like all sorts of spirits but I think it has to be one of my favourites of all. I was hoping that the most whisky savvy folk on this board may be able to help me find some whiskies that are similar to Aberlour, or at least highlight some of its most distinctive characteristics, which would then let me chose some other similar types - I'm really trying to get more selective in what I like.
So thanks - (1) for reading this admittedly long post and (2) for any help you can give.
