  1. sagara-kun scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    A bit disappointing. No big flaws but nothing sticking out either.
    I think I completely missed this dram.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Kiwi, passion, pineapple. We are on a beautiful fruity sherry refill.
      Balanced, sweet. But still very simple.
      With aeration more red fruit, caramelized sugar.
    • Taste
      86 86
      In the mouth it is light, on wood, molasses, liquorice, bay, bramble. Black and quite closed.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Short finish on pepper, dried fruits, blackberry throat candy.

    candied fruits, a fruit liqueur, caramel, honey, toasted gingerbread
    sweet spices, a tenacious minty side behind, fruits cooked and macerated on the quince with the pectin, on the orange and the zest, cocoa, intense wood, glazed glue; ground nut and fresh sap.

    C: Desirably consolidated dry honey nose, as is typical of malts at this age. The rest can’t quite live up to the olfactory pleasures, but it’s still absolutely delicious juice all-round.

    Tasted at whisky show 2021, pleasant fruity bunna

  8. GAET59 scored this whisky 88 points Member Senior

    well done but too classic and nothing crazy for a 44 year old.

  9. wisekyofcourse scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    nose:
    on candied fruit, soggy dried prunes with mold on them, honey, gingerbread, caramel full of butter, vegetal return with the sap flowing
    mouth:
    intense, full of floral sap, on the peppery and slightly minty stem, on macerated candied fruits, intense, the juice of caramel, dark cocoa, cooked fruit pulp, grapes, prunes, cooked tangerine , the characteristic rianço, oaky notes on intense notes of humid wood and a little of this roasted side; in short it's intense and it's just superb, it makes you want to stay on it!
    final:
    long, intense, pleasant, makes you want to eat what is left; heavy and deep sherry, roasted coffee grounds, cooked and macerated fruit, all fully combined to give an incredible all-around feel.

  10. Jackson05 scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    Lovely older Bunna with charm and dignity. Much like the 43 year old it’s very dignified and elegant. Soft waxes and old honey. Polish and antique notes. Really enjoyable but the low abv is obvious. Still lots to love with no flaws in the spirit.

  11. WHISKYEUROPA2009 scored this whisky 94 points Expert Senior

    SMELL of plum wine, caramel sauce, quince, marshmallows and gingerbread mix with wildflowers and sweet tea on the nose. In the TASTE there are notes of fresh peppermint, moist oak, tangerine, heather honey, mango and tobacco that linger in the finish.
