    I only tried it for the first time in May 2022,
    I've watched it many times in the past long time, and the price is only in the early 2K.
    I checked again today and found that it was more than 4000rmb.
    I feel sorry to have missed it.
    • Nose
      91 91
      Very, very good sherry, dried red dates, ripe dark fruit, nice oak, very deep and clean.
    • Taste
      91 91
      What reminds me is the stewed red dates with rock sugar Sydney, especially the red dates, which are really vivid, dried longan, almonds, and the wine is slightly softer, not so strong.
    • Finish
      90 90
      Red dates, red dates, too obvious, honey, very long, but the tannins are a bit more astringent, very dry, and a strong finish.

    Bunnahabhain XXV, 25 years, original bottling, 46.3% alc.

    Nose: First a nice sherry nose with raisins and dark berries, plus nutty milk chocolate and mild coffee aromas, and some moist tobacco is also part of the party. A slightly floral and sweet perfume note hovers in the background, which, however, does not appear obtrusive. The malt is rounded off by a dry and harmonious wood smoke note.

    Palate: Raisins, blackberries and dates. In addition, the coffee aromas and some milk foam. The nut gets stronger, then strong winter spices follow, which let the oak come a little, but are not really bitter. The dryness of the nose comes back, seems a touch salty.

    Finish: Long and pleasantly warming, molasses and raisins, tobacco and espresso. Towards the end with more oak wood.

    Conclusion: A really good Bunnahabhain, which scores very highly with its beautiful sherry aromas and the round oak influence. 89/100 points (2015)

      Mature dates and sun drenched raisins in a characteristic sherry bottling with a rich, dark sherry scent. A light whisky, floral and with a touch of caramel and milk chocolate. A fantastic complex nose that is full of promise.

      Wow! Old, mature and smooth sherry. Creamy with sweetness of caramel and red fruits. Vanilla and fudge with sun-drenched raisins. Floral with sweet, dark honey and dried fruits. Fullbodied and complex, a dram with a lot of character.
    • Finish
      92 92
      Long and with all the notes of sweet, old sherry. Toffee, dark honey and vanilla. A little almond mass, creamy and raisins. A fantastic finish to a great dram.

    A great one. Very mature. You can smell the sherry far away
