  1. Defeatless scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    An little different Bunna, but quite a good one!
    • Nose
      88 88
      Sweet, mossy, little salt water hints. Smells like peaches. In the background there is the distinct hint of Bunna, but it is a little hidden. Well layered whisky.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Sweet and smooth. Oily as well. There is a fair bit of dark spices combined with fruitiness. A odd but well working combination.
    • Finish

      Long lenght! This is quite a finish, very well tasting caramel and a lot of darker spices. A little dry, but not overly tannic.

    color: pale gold
    nose: vanilla, ripe fruit, melon, banana
    taste: still ripe fruit, melon, banana, with the addition of an aftertaste of citrus, cedar, lime, green tea and in the end a certain amount of oil and oily features that recall (as rightly observed Serge) a young clynelish with a fruity character. with the addition of water a more savory, astringent and sour side emerges, in particular citrus, cedar predominates.
    Final: oily and citrus like in the end of the palate.
    excellent whisky, but in my opinion a little too expensive, it is reminiscent of an excellent van wees 2008-2019 clynelish 56.1% which I bought around 60 euros a few months ago.

  4. detachedblue scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Rather simple and mellow Bunna
    • Nose
      A touch of diesel, sweet barley, very mellow and simple
    • Taste
      Simple, sweet and minty, a lot of camphor
    • Finish
      Long, a lot of spices

  5. dram-drinker scored this whisky 90 points Moderator

    A very citric expression - starting more sweet and ending more herbal bitter - overall very clean and a clear story - great!
    • Nose
      90 90
      Citrus fruits, lemons, grapefruits, carambole, minerals, limestone, herbs, touch of vanilla too, milk chocolate - not bad at all
    • Taste
      91 91
      Punchy, creamy like lemon butter cream, truck loads of citrus fruits, stone minerals again, herbs, vanilla - very good
    • Finish
      89 89
      Medium long, warm, more herbal and more grapefruits in the end not to say a tad bitter
