- I remember the "old version" to taste better.
But dang, today I just took it out from the shelve, poured a dram and sipped it.
It's damn delish... I got it for a relatively cheap buck and its not really worse than its lighter predesc.
If you can get a hand on this, do so, I feel that those kind of drams will get less and less with the years.
- Rather light and easy drinkable - compared to an older Bunna XXV with 43% this one is easier, less sherried and more fruity
Blonde oranges, apricots, hints of vanilla, nuts, cloves, sherry notes, whiffs of dry hay - pretty good
Little punchy, oily, fruity, subtle sweetness, pepper, woody, ginger, peaches, bananas - very good
Medium long, warm, fruity, little zesty, hints of grapefruits
- Nicely balanced, well put-together, sheried malt with a decent amount of complexity. But somehow - tasting it blind - it lacked the wow-factor. Must've been better when they used better sherry casks in the past like the 12 and 18 I assume. Imho to pricey for what it offers, except you can't stand too bold a flavor and roundness is your no 1 priority.
Clean sherry, raisins, milk chocolate covered plums, quiet heavy, slightly briny, beautifully oaky.
Very soft, mellow and oaky. Comforting, luscious oak. Reminds a little for the great Balblair 1990 (2015). There is no fruit here for me, it is all about the oak complexity. Also some honey glazed nuts.
The finish is lingering on those slightly aldehydic oaky notes.
