      Sherry, fruity, nutty. A strong caramelized/carnalizing brown sugar on certain parts of the tongue.

      About the same, but softer. Some toffee on the tail end. Medium-long.

    Nose: very candied with loads of malt.

    Palate: mushrooms and barley

    Finish: softening of the palate

  3. Deloti scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Very drinkable whisky. It gains when water's added in my opinion. Lovely and at a fair price for what you get

    Almost 13 years cask strength sherry expression of Bunnahabhain. Dry fruits, nuts, present sweetness. Even better with some drops of water! Good price /value ratio.

  6. LordBellamy scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    with water: alcohol is well balanced, it does not need water. But it wins with water in the nose, it becomes sweeter and the acidic note decreases

    Conclusion: Here you are rewarded with water. Without it, my nose is too unbalanced, acidic, but it gets better with the addition of water. The taste and finish are very good anyway.
    • Nose
      85 85
      Sherry, slightly sour note like sherry vinegar, earthy-dull undertone, the sweetness gets through more easily with hand warmth, cinnamon, meat extract, raisins, oak, thyme
    • Taste
      88 88
      Sherry, hazelnuts, interesting sweetness, caramel, subtle oak, yummy
    • Finish
      87 87
      medium length, the taste profile from the mouth continues, the oak is out of the back, but not too dry and brings a nice spice with it
