    In the nose, the Bunna-specific and single barrel aromas are immediately noticeable with an intensity carried by the alcohol. I wonder if the alcohol note is youthful and disturbing. I let the dram breathe a little. No, the alcohol intensity is now correct. The sherry aromas are somehow "oldstyle". At 14 he seems to have had good barrels. I don't find any seasoned style there. And again I type on Oloroso (but it can also be wrong). Musty, somewhat leathery notes, with somewhat fermented dark cherries in the foreground. An (exaggerated) sweetness is missing. Something maritime saltiness can be felt. With a few drops of water, the alcoholic intensity is gone. The nuttiness is now in the background and the sherry barrel is gaining the upper hand.
    In the mouth, the interplay of the aromas you smell immediately spread. From the cherry-shaped sherry with a little mustiness to the unusually intense nuttiness to the milky chocolate, everything is available. A little barrel seasoning with removed herbs should also be noted. The aromas stay a little longer in the mouth, but the finish is quite short.
    What can I say. Another successful Bunna bottling. I give the bottling a good 88 pts. He lacks the depth of an older bottling, but for his 14 years he's top.
