    N: With a fruity< creamy depth, this appears plenty older than 16.
    T: Starting off a little congested, it takes a while to chew through it. Appears more youthful on the palate than the nose.
    F: Rough & tumble finish.
    C: More typically an old-style Bunna [and Ben Nevis-esque for that matter], it’s certainly a loveable rogue.

    Top 5 whisky I've tasted. The aroma in the glass is like burying its nose in a plate of fruit. Despite the strength, it is light in taste and not alcoholic, of course, if you do not bury your nose in the glass deeply. The finish is long, long-lasting and breathtaking.

    Smell: Sweet dried fruits, especially raisins. Its aroma is deep and heavy. Nuts are added, a little caramel and a slight hint of salt. Old dry wood.
    Taste: It starts off quite sweet, fruit notes slowly develop, here too there are dried fruits, raisins, dates and figs. A light pepper spice. Milk chocolate with hazelnut.
    Finish: quite long. Dry, with pleasant oak flavor. Maybe some leather.
    Conclusion: a fine, balanced sherry whisky!
