  3. gossm01 scored this whisky 93 points Expert Senior

    It is of medium viscosity and its bouquet is of moderate intensity. I have aromas of mint, tropical fruits, vanilla, caramel, slightly maritime notes and citrus fruit. A complex malt. Relatively sweet in taste. The alcohol is very well integrated and it has a medium body.

    A sensitively aged Bunnahabhain. The refill cask lets the distillate shine. The nose is a treasure.

      Mint, fresh cut grass, grape, lychee. Sweet, juicy, refreshing. One to savour.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Salty, oily, distillate led, edges softened by three decades in unassertive wood. With time, a rock candy sweetness develops.

      Medium length, pepper, liquorice.

    it was not easy to recognize the profile ... the aroma is delicate, fruity-ginger ... the taste is sharp, spices like white pepper and the same ginger, the finish is medium 22-23-22-23
