I have some, and I love it. I've never tried any of the others for comparison though.

The nose was what you'd expect (sherry; spice and christmas cake) but the palate was tainted..promising at first with some hints of dark rum/demerara sugar/almonds.....but the finish ends quicker then you'd imagine.....some sulphur as well which lets it down.........its a shame that there is so much variation between the casks as Batch 26 was amazing and one of my favorite.....anyone else have a similiar experience??

I've got about half the bottle left, so maybe letting it sit for a while with some air trapped above it in the bottle might help it out? I'm almost ashamed to say I've been adding a splash of Laphroig 10 to each dram, along with some water and/or an ice cube to drink it.
It's nothing like the bottle of Aberlour 16 y/o I've almost finished, which is extraordinarily pleasing to sip neat.
I'm sure I'll probably try the A'bunadh again some day, but I'll wait for some reviews on the particular batch number before I buy one.
