    I say hello to Luca Gargano [WLP], who happens to be standing beside me. He’s spotted all of Elixir’s just-out releases.

    N: Picking good Bunna can be a bit of a lottery, but this one is just lovely. In fact, I can’t remember having many bad ones at this age. With a little more cask action than the 1990 vintage, this is fruitier with green fruits, a touch of sweet melon and lemon.
    T: Like the previous 28yo, this is also distillate-led. Additionally it’s a touch farmy which compliments Bunna so well [as does a touch more consolidated sherry maturation than is usually found]. Luscious dry mouthful on the turn.
    F: Barley-led lemon peel held in a firm-yet-gentle oaky grip.
    C: Very fine, if not overly complex. With thanks to Julie.
