    Sherry, nuts, caramel and salt. Not very balanced nor complex. But if you like sherry, you can't go wrong...
    • Nose
      Clearly the sherry dominates everything, but still there's something different about this one. So next to all the sherry notes like raisins and mocha, you'll have enough room for salt, caramel  and nuts. Hmm, isn't that just a classical Bunna?
    • Taste
      So the sherry gives lot's of mocha, coffee and a little bit of oranges. Not on the fruity side, but very sweet and dry. Still the bunna provides this salty influence and there's a strong nutty taste to it. Almonds and cashew.  
    • Finish
      The finish is of course al about the nutty dryness. The sweetness keeps it in check, so it stays quite good.

    Pretty similar to Bunna 12 yo OB 46 ° at first glance, it is quite different with a little patience. Despite his younger, I found it more accomplished, more complex. However, this kind of sherry, on caramel and nuts is not really my cup of tea but I still enjoyed it. I would come back soon because the little ventilation he had between the opening of the bottle and the end of the tasting did him a lot of good. Very light traces of red fruits that I like so much in sherry cask .
    • Nose
      First on the caramel (but not as rude as I could already taste). Directly followed by roasted and caramelized peanuts (as at the fair ), peanut butter (crunchy or creamy, choose your team!). A little citrus like liqueur, bitter oranges (triple sec), mandarin (napoleon). A malt that reminds me of the Christmas season and its markets. Slight trace of vulcanized rubber that fades with aeration. A scent a little powdery, heady, incense?
    • Taste
      Round despite some slight tingling. A bit of bitter oranges. Then a smoked side coated with mocha.
    • Finish
      Many dried fruits, way beggars. Very strong on the nuts at first, we slide with aeration on the currants, dates. Rubber is back but at o
