      Dark fruits as plums and red berries remain in accordance to the nose. In addition some wood. Overall not complex but easy going. No alkoholic sharpness.

      Astonishly short but nice and smooth fruits. Below that some nuts.

    Tasted in a Nas versus Age tasting against the Sti.... thing. This one is way more balanced and a good version of the 12 year old Bunna. Very fun and pleasent to drink.
