For those who believed the pinnacle batches from this label were a thing of the past, a tasting of #74 and #75 might reshape that perspective. Although Batch 075 is only marginally higher in alcohol content, just 0.9% more than Batch 074, initial expectations of similarity hold true at first sip. Yet, as is characteristic of sherry-matured malts, particularly at cask strength, the influence of time and air contact becomes evident.

Batch 075 embodies the classic sherried style. Robust Oloroso characteristics are discernible, with delightful notes of prune and dried apricot permeating the malty profile. This richness is further enhanced after the addition of water, unveiling elevated baking spice and an intensified fruit cake character. True to A'bunadh form, the finish is bold, tactile, heartwarming, and creamy, followed by a long aftertaste featuring hints of leather and orange fondants.

While A'bunadh doesn't necessarily strive for a 'balanced' style, prioritizing sheer power and sherry influence, Batch 075 comes remarkably close to meeting the criteria for exceptional cask strength whisky—a rarity. The noteworthy depth and integration strongly suggest the inclusion of older liquid in this batch, adding to its overall impressiveness.
