    impressed me little price performance I do not think so great.
    • Nose
      slightly mineral lemon, relatively mild / shallow nose, wood oil, creamy, some coconut fat, lime blossom, butter biscuits, delicate sweetness, low acidity, also warms less intense - the nose is nice but weak
    • Taste
      somewhat stronger than the nose would suggest, quite oily texture, slightly warming, ginger, laurel, wood stain with beeswax, herbkrautig with delicate bitter note, here is
    • Finish
      the finish is my highlight, here it is pulsating, swinging between pudding, wood and floral notes back and forth, is very balanced and comparatively intense to its other performance

    • Nose
      Fresh, amazingly light. Grated lemon zest, physalis and some mint. Dry white wine, some earth.
    • Taste
      Clear and tender. Light grapes with a slightly acidic impact. Pancakes, a little lemon juice. Behind it nectarines with a hint of wax. Subtle nutty.

    The malt is alright but he can not keep up with other Bunnas from the 88-90s from the Bourbon Hogshead ...
    Currently, the price is € 170 for a bottle; So if I included the PLV, there would be 2 points less.
    So do not get it wrong, it's a correct malt, but for 30 € less there are some better ones. More barrel, better integrated alcohol, and above all more coherent.
