    Nose: Gummy bears, bananas, floral, licorice and creamy.

    Taste: Licorice and caramel - very simple.

    Finish: There is a very weak off-note, chocolate and woody.

  5. Calmar scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Very strange whisky, powerful, bright, but very poor palette of derivatives, beer taste, empty finish, but, again, funny, not boring, as a tasting sample is quite acceptable.
    • Nose
      Restrained, dry, first nose - rowan jam, ash; fresh boards, prickly mineral notes - ash, cement, stone chips; lemon peel, carpentry, solvent, eucalyptus, mint, medical glue.
    • Taste
      Rounded, powerful, saturated, bright and juicy notes of light beer, really, as if Zhigulevskogo took a sip, well, or, given the fortress, ruff, straight school years came to mind hops, oak, vanilla, grain.
    • Finish
      Some kind of empty, but warming, remnants of beer, oak, a little bark.

  6. Alex Fridays scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    The colour is amber. The nose is sweet with caramel, butterscotch, sweet fruits, peaches, berries jam, oak, perfume and tangerine notes. The palate is sweet and lightly dry with oak, sweet fruits, pepper, perfume, caramel and apples with light sourness notes. The finish is long, spicy and lightly dry with spices, sweet fruits and oak notes. This whisky is a very good balanced and tasty. It’s a closer to be perfect. I gave 92 points.

  9. gango4 scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    A Bunnahabhain of the upper class.
    • Nose
      In the nose alcoholic coolness is detectable in combination with honey. Very lovely. Nutty, no really dark sherry tones detectable. With increasing heat waxes.
    • Taste
      Very voluminous and soft, full, oily body. No burning, very weak spiciness in the throat, short grass / hare note, which does not stay long. Flowery-earthy and harsh.
    • Finish
      Not softening green oak in the aftertaste.

    Malty, very smooth, nice sweetness - very good
