    [April, 2014]  I had this dram during a FoSM club tasting.In
    my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50
    - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 87,5. 
    My notes state a strong dark sherry profile with some sulphury notes (bearable).  Maybe a little one-dimensional on sherry, but a very nice dimension...

    Tasting Notes by Adelphi;

    A sherry monster from the first look – dark amber with excellent beading.
    Immediately we can find burnt sugar, maple syrup, burnt Christmas cake and chewy toffees. Even in such a young whisky, the nose keeps changing: now, caramelised dried bananas (Chinese), reconstituted Christmas pudding (possibly from New Year) and definitely fried in butter with cinnamon, overcooked apple crumble and a dash of fresh mint all thrown in for good measure.
    To taste, black coffee, dark chocolate and brown sugar all make this quite decadent.
    At reduced strength, celery, brandy and glazed pork chops enter the frame with a mouth cooling and drying, oily and slightly maritime character.
    We have been incredibly fortunate to find some stunning Bunnahabhains in 2010, both young and old, and this is up there with the best.

    There is a bit of sulphur here, but very little & in the background.
    • Nose
      a lot of sweet (red) sherry ++, caramel/melting sugar +, bourbon vanilla +/o, raisins +/o, Vanillekipferl +/o , cinnamon o, wood o/-, tobacco -, cloves -. (93)
    • Taste
      sherry + & old wood, dark chocolate, waxy/oily mouthfeel, some peat and motor oil in the background. (89)
    • Finish
      long. back to milk chocolate, old wood again, the whole christmas cookie tin-can. (91)

      later. sulphur / motor oil seems to stick around longer & becomes more prominent (86)
