- delicious and tasty sherry drinking dram
Deep and dark, later mocha and light sweetness
black coffee, mocha, caramel, nutty and a little salty DELICIOUS!!!
Mocca sticks to the palate, afterwards the sweet caramel notes come out more and more
- Sherry, nuts, caramel and salt. Not very balanced nor complex. But if you like sherry, you can't go wrong...
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?
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.
The finish is of course al about the nutty dryness. The sweetness keeps it in check, so it stays quite good.

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 .
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?
Round despite some slight tingling. A bit of bitter oranges. Then a smoked side coated with mocha.
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
