    • Nose
      Initially fresh brioche flows towards me, slightly buttery and yeasty. But then follow the typical Bunnahabhain maritime flavors for salt spray and sea air. Somewhat overripe citrus fruits, which now emit more sweet than acid notes, bring a young fruitiness into play. I can not really find heavy dark sherry flavors. The longer he breathes in the glass, the clearer are the sweet vanilla flavors. Some sage and fresh menthol bring a cool touch, edged smooth wood provides some barrel influence. The alcohol teases a bit in the nose.
    • Taste
      In the mouth immediately very powerful and aromatic, a grassy and herbaceous spiciness with beautiful meadow honey and vanilla waffles. Salt and lemon - for a brief moment, I believe in a tequila tasting ... The salt is beautifully integrated into a caramel sweetness, which, however, does not last long. Polished and brightly shining oak notes push dry and dry forward and remind me in their intensity and rugged nature almost to virgin virgin oak.
    • Finish
      In the warm and medium-long finish especially beautiful sweet malt notes, barley stalks and some anise remain.
