    My first Manzanilla whisky ever and I'm almost convinced. Nearly
    • Nose

      The dark, dark chocolate note stands out immediately. Far away it smells of strawberry. A little coffee or espresso is available. Extremely beautiful fragrance with a typical Bunnahabhain character.

      The chocolate note remains here too, but changes from dark chocolate to deep black chocolate with 80% cocoa. Reminiscent of the Burgundy finish. Here we have a full maturation. The somewhat damp, woody barrel note comes to the fore

      Delicious, but too bitter. The mouth contracts like an extremely dry wine. Unfortunately, this separates the Bunna from a top grade. What a shame

      Nice fruity and nutty nose. At first, fresh grapes paired with raisins soaked in rum dominate the nose. Later you will feel less of the grapes, but dried apricots with a slight sulfur note, which is not annoying. Here and there, roasted hazelnuts and dark chocolate gleam above everything.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Quite mild in the first start. Everything that you already had in your nose comes back here, but there is also a noticeable dryness in the mouth, which evokes associations of cocoa powder and roasted nuts.
    • Finish
      87 87
      The finish is unfortunately not too long, but now the fruity notes remain on the tongue.
