    • Nose
      89 89
      Winey with a nice oak and greedy. Nice acidity on red fruits (currants). light maderization (wild strawberry) ,. Medicinal note in the background that brings a touch of freshness
    • Taste
      87 87
      greedy attack, very round, always on red fruits but sweeter (strawberry, blackberry), then the fresh medicinal side emerges bringing the freshness that was lacking. It's very good but we lose the subtlety promised by the nose
    • Finish
      86 86
      warm, all round

    Aroma - dried fruit, minerality, spicy spices.
    We stood and breathed ..... Ripe fruits, vanilla, green tea, creamy motives, a note of freshness (menthol, mint), a barrel.
    The taste is sweet. Dried fruits, honey, pepper, dark chocolate, overdried prunes, wet wood.
    Finish - medium duration. Dried fruits, barrel, chili pepper.
    Conclusion: Poor enough, faded, inexpressive and sous ....... ka unreasonably expensive.
    This is exactly the case when the regular line will be preferable to this tinsel with the flashy name of Limited Release or Warehouse.

    Nose: thick and waxy, with chocolate oak, some furniture polish, a bit mineral and musty, a good portion of nuts, caramel, malt with a little glucose. Pickled cherries, fresh apple pie, peach, a nice creaminess that I always have with this type of barrel.

    Taste: very sweet and creamy, then the oak with chocolate, then a real fruit bomb with malt candy, oak, white coffee, chocolate, again nuts and caramel.

    Finish: very long, the oak holds really well with this strong malt-fruit-caramel mixture.

    It takes a little time in the glass, but it is rewarded, it really opens with air.
    Forget the € 150 that is now being called for him, € 80 fits better, I paid a little more at the time. However, it is very drinkable and beautifully independent, the brandy cask gives it a nice unique selling point with the mineral Bunna nuttiness.

    Very complex and varied, which you can deal with nicely. The alcohol is well integrated. Nice "legs" form in the glass. It is remarkable that when he shakes the bottle he foams like apple spritzer. I've never had so much foam!

      First, it starts with a subtle, mineral freshness. At first, the alcohol is barely noticeable, dark honey is noticeable, crème brulée, Werther's real creamy sweets.
    • Taste
      89 89
      Kanz shortly comes a slight sourness (cider?), Which is replaced by a creamy, warming sherry sweetness. Then violent pepper and walnut aromas come out, before a musty old wool scarf in connection with the pepper announces the finish.
    • Finish
      87 87
      The finish is rather long, first really peppery, then this spice wears off and it slowly, subtly fades away with wood.

    After more than a year of sobering, I finally became able to drink, highlighting the creamy sweetness, less saltpeter stimulation, making the expression of fruity and chocolate smoother, but after all, it is difficult to be called elegant, and it is difficult to make waves in the mouth. It's not the haben that I like.
    • Nose
      Cream, grapes, peaches, preserved apricots, saltpeter, slightly more stimulating.
    • Taste
      Thick and astringent. The alcohol sense is generally controlled, tart berries, apples, apricots, accompanied by cream, sweet mixed with old wood, saltpeter, and some less pleasant flavors, slightly heavy caramel, chocolate, and the stimulation begins to strengthen in the middle and late stages.
    • Finish
      Short to medium, old wooden barrel, fruit acid, chocolate.

    Bunna on French Brandy.. Didn't know what to expect.
    It's pretty good but didn't gave me the thrills of an outstanding whisky. I love Bunna don't get me wrong, but it's just a bit boring..

    The nose is probably the best for me. Taste is good and finish a bit disappointing..

    For me a smooth 3.
    Nice grape notes with a light touch of sulfur.
