    Conclusion and pictures on: https://tomtrinkt.de
    • Nose
      Heavy smoke (flaming campfire) and a salty sea breeze take over the command immediately. The aromatic intensity is considerable, I honestly did not expect that in the form. Sweet fruit notes gradually penetrate the initially dominant smoke of the wild Islay malts. Salty caramel, gentle sweet sherry notes, dried orange peel, lemons and blueberries follow. Strong spices (nutmeg & cloves), oak and dried tobacco leaves are mixed with smoke and fruity notes. Pleasantly complex!
    • Taste
      Soft and full-bodied onset. The Bunnahabhain rekindles a blazing bonfire and a fine sea breeze. The Sherrynoten gain in taste in presence and dominance. Overripe apples, orange peel, grapefruit, raisins and sugared wild berries create a sweet and fruity contrast. Christmas spices, salty caramel, dark chocolate, spicy oak and fine tobacco notes complete the harmonious taste. The alcohol content (46.3%) fits very well into the overall picture. I renounce the addition of water.
    • Finish
      Medium to long, smoky-spicy and warm. The Sherrynoten now give way to the more ashen smoke and clear traces of pepper, salt and chocolate. Strong oak notes, Christmas spices and tobacco let the Bunnahabhain slowly fade away. A slight dryness remains on the palate.

    But hello, he can do something. That's when I thought that was just another of those "okay" bunna no age statements. But no. He has depth and character and gets out back not thin and boring, but holds beautiful long the variety of aromas of the nose and tongue upright. At the price - you really can not complain.
    • Nose
      88 88
      A pleasantly restrained smoky note that draws with a touch of dried apricots, peaches and raisins in the nose. Sherry aromas follow after a while, as do caramel and honey. Spicy wood, a little tree resin and pepper complete the picture.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Cool peat smoke, more intense on the tongue than in the nose. Dry from the beginning. Sherry aromas, some Kellermoder and an impression of damp wood give it depth. Cloves, nutmeg and pepper crowd in. Also a little licorice and menthol resonate. Nougat chocolate, freshly brewed coffee, leather.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Medium long, dry. In the finish he continues to show the flavors of the tongue. Although in a weakened form, but as a whole they are still there. Anything but one-dimensional.

    no club
    looks gentle and older
    that could do more but the menthol note kills a lot
    • Nose
      Walnut shells in red wine water
      At first, the nose barely opens
      then comes incense, menthol, smoke rather in the background as a clue
      the nose looks cool and smooth
      Later come warm walnut notes, dark caramel with chocolate topping like the "Giant Candy" and again frankincense
    • Taste
      smooth and cool at the start
      Menthol immediately, Tanine
      cool and yet warm
      Slowly, smoke and heat develop in the oral cavity
      Resin, wood, dark liquorice, chocolate and sugar
      Honey water on the palate, very sweet, but a natural-tasting sweetness
    • Finish
      nice finish
      Baked apple juice and barrel flavors
      Coffee and caramel

    Unusual but very interesting nose - the mouthfeel falls off and can not keep up.
    • Nose
      85 85
      Unusual smoke (frankincense), cooling nose - menthol, minty and citrus fresh, licorice, barely honey sweet, you have to look for the few Sherryoten.
    • Taste
      82 82
      Initially closed and not very expressive, cool. Light sweetness and smoke develop, caramel, hints of honey.
    • Finish
      81 81
      Medium. At first mild and sweet, the tannins soon take over. Dry smoke on the tongue to the end.
