It is a dirty one, unfortunately. I am sure many modern whisky drinkers like such a profile but I do not - I prefer a clean and delicate distillate over such cheap thrills (heavy bitter woods, slightly sulphur-spoiled sherry). I will take Bunnahabhain off my list of preferred distilleries very soon, most probably...
The colour is deep copper and the nose offers a slightly dirty modern sherry profile with some cheesy and sulphurous off-notes. The sherry itself is not very bold and still leaves enough space for the malt characteristics, too bad the off-notes are stronger than the pleasant ones.
The taste is herbal-sherry driven with significant bitter flavours (bitter nuts, green tea, tannins) that turn the dram very dry. The sweet sugars are there, of course, but they never dare to enter the spotlight. After some chewing a dark chocolatey flavour emerges together with some spices. Sorry, this is not my preferred taste (it is too bitter-drying).
The initial mouthfeel is hot-peppery and sulphurous-coating with a minor bitter-astringent moment. The finish is long and gets even more drying-astringent with the bitter flavours dominating. Water releases more unpleasant aromas (in my nose, only) of brackish water but it reduces the bitterness in both taste and finish somewhat. I like this dram best a little reduced to about 40% abv.
