    • Nose
      85 85
      Comes out very pleasant.
      Fresh bread, sweet red fruits. Red apple peel.
      There's smoke, but not in massive amounts. What is of it is very clean an dry.
      Vanilla and some field flovers.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Sweet barley sugar, a little vanilla.
      Red fruits/berries. Blackcurrant.
      51,5% is as right as it can be, arriving rich and very firm, and then stays very stable throughout.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Sweet, as the barley sugar comes back in control.
      Past medium lenght with some very clean oak towards the end.

    I'm too lazy to count how many times I've used "unexpected," "surprising," or similar in the text below, but that actually perfectly describes the most important part of my conclusion about this malt: who's a classic bunnahabhain with its typically soft, creamy Character wants, he is wrong with this whisky. This Bunnahabhain does not purr as usual, but has penetrated the gas pedal vigorously and shows clearly that he comes from Islay. Unexpected (Now I've counted: four to six times depending on how generous you interpreted), but nice yummy.
    • Nose
      The classic Bunnahabhain is more of a slightly smoky, fruity, creamy representative and of course I expect this Brennereicharakter when I put my nose in the glass. After the first sniffing, I first threw a confused look at the bottle, even though I really poured myself a Bunnahabhain, but the label confirmed it. So again sniffing. The malt hits me absolutely unexpectedly strong and smoky. After the nose and head have recovered from this surprise, there are other flavors that can be found: vanilla (clear), wildflowers, blackberries, strawberries and, after not being able to place it for a long time, a little chamomile.
    • Taste
      Here, too, the malt for a Bunnahabhain presents itself unexpectedly strong at the start, but then returns its vanilla price. The blackberries and strawberries are there and harmonize well with the still surprisingly present smoke. In addition, now show bitter lemon and burnt sugar.
    • Finish
      Smoky, medium long, for the first time the oak barrel makes itself noticeable and continues with bitter lemon in the background.

  4. ctu scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Surprisingly smoky, matured and fruity young Bunna. The refill sherry hogshead worked nicely. :)
    • Nose
      Surprisingly smoky Bunna at first. Camphor, forest fruits and rosé.
    • Taste
      Powerful. Sour citruses and spicy oak. Strawberry and raspberry.
    • Finish
      Medium length, smoky, spicy and fruity.
