    • Nose
      this light gooseberry note from Bunnahabhain comes straight into the nose, cinnamon, light sherry fruitiness, over time strong fruitiness comes over, dark fruits, pleasant wood spice, light caramel
    • Taste
      Dark chocolate, oak spice, gooseberries
    • Finish
      long after bitter chocolate

    Unfortunately, you would have to deduct a point for the bad PLV, as I can no longer recommend a purchase for this more than 120 euros. Purely in terms of taste, however, a clear 89 with exciting “maritime” notes.
    I've already let him compete against the GlenDronach 18 - my favorite standard whisky - but he clearly loses against him. If you are looking for a chocolatey and fruity sherry bomb, you can go for the GlenDronach, if you are looking for an extraordinary “Sherry-Salt-Coast-Whisky”, treat yourself to this one.
