    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
    • Nose
      89 89
      Blonde oranges, apricots, hints of vanilla, nuts, cloves, sherry notes, whiffs of dry hay - pretty good
    • Taste
      90 90
      Little punchy, oily, fruity, subtle sweetness, pepper, woody, ginger, peaches, bananas - very good
    • Finish
      88 88
      Medium long, warm, fruity, little zesty, hints of grapefruits

  4. Whisky Hamster scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    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.

    2020.12.03.
    • Nose
      Clean sherry, raisins, milk chocolate covered plums, quiet heavy, slightly briny, beautifully oaky.
    • Taste
      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.
    • Finish
      The finish is lingering on those slightly aldehydic oaky notes.
