... which can be spiced up by a very strong Staoisha, in which possibly even candlelight is mirrored.
Vanilla and smoke first caress the nose before everything in the mouth seems to explode. One hardly remembers where up and down is, fruit notes throng into the "picture", one seems to taste spices, another believes that it completely rips the gossip, and again one chews the drop with some bitter chocolate and is from the incredible sweetness absolutely entranced.
Here you really have to sip at the dram.
If the sip is too big, the alcohol dominates too much.
As always (or rather sometimes) a strong Staoisha can handle quite a bit of water. Then you can still look for pears and other green fruits, but I prefer to stick to tiny sips. I do not want this unruly something to take a back seat too much.
From me 84 points at Whiskybase and again a reason to like the young Bunnahabhain (s).
Those who love the older, rounder and more complex bottlings and then even the "originals" should have indulgence with me.
