    a peaty Bunna from peat!
    fat peat, dry, cold ashes already already in return!
    simple citrus on lime, it is minimal but intense at the same time!
    spices come to enhance the whole.
    We smell malt, dried herbs smoked.
    the final is on the same scents with a little soot.

    We move onto a [35ppm tops] peated cask - cue viking cheers! We are told that this is exactly the type of cask that goes into Bunna’s Moine. This one spent 9 years in [bourbon?] refill before being transferred into a PX cask in 2013.

    N: Mild yet decidedly sweet vegetal dry, yeasty & oily with a toasted sweet corn relish appetiser.
    T: Oozes dry-but-not-drying wet peat. Becomes seriously moorish, moving along at a natural pace.
    F: Dry-but-not-drying neat peat-smoked barley finish with smoked/charred chestnuts.
    C: This dry-not-drying quality on the palate is emerging as my Bunna distillery character of the week. “Ask for the peated PX warehouse dram in the shop”.

    simple and tasty peated Bunnahabhain.
    The gingery/sweet palate was not overwhelming compared to a few other PX Moine I tasted previously, which is a good thing.
    • Nose
      Peat smoke, camphor, seabreeze and whiffs of lemon.
    • Taste
      Juicy, lemony, peppery and gingery.
    • Finish
      Long, smoky and peppery.

    Awesome stuff. Cherry-picked for the ones who are dedicated enough to make the journey to Islay. Cheers!

    Tastes more like a sweet liquor - not complex but very drinkable
    • Nose
      Nice and fine peat and smoke, I would say Lagavulin style, sea breeze, iodine, smoked fish - really not bad
    • Taste
      Sirupy, sweet, fine peat and smoke, hints of seaweed
    • Finish
      Long, warm
