The nose strikes you with this typical Bunnahabhain Moine smoke, which I like a lot. The alcohol is quite present but not too dominant. Additionally, the influence from the Bordeaux cask is quite present but not overpowering at all - we found a bunch of berries (blackberries and raspberries) paired with some light vanilla ice cream. I also found hints of dough and yeast wreath. There's also something herbal to it, as well as freshly cut branches and some grass. Lovely!
The palate is "very moine" with this superb and gentle smoke. I added some water quite quickly and was rewarded massively. The red berries are still there and reminded me of a mix of blueberries, raspberries and red gooseberries paired with some yummy salted caramel.
The finish is dominated by a herbal cigar smoke, which keeps lingering for quite a while until finally the berries find their way again. The finish is not too complex but I like it a lot!
88 points altogether for the Bunnahabhain Feis Ile 2021, 2013 Moine Bordeaux Finish. This is the quality I expect when thinking of Feis Ile and even though it's still very young and spirit forward this malt knows to convince.
