Direct comparison to Batch 1 - 2021 Edition WID: 194125
In front - like the 2021 version, no sulfur or unpleasant bad notes
B2 - is noticeably darker
B2 - intense sherry, fruitier and sweeter. No alcoholic note
Taste: B2 - sherry without end, darker fruits, the 56% feel wonderfully soft. I find the 55% of B1 more alcoholic
also fruitier and sweeter, but then becomes a bit bitter and remains a bit astringent
How to imagine a really great batch of the "normal" 12 Bunna with even more rump. Great! The furry finish gets better with water. But the taste suffers a bit. This also makes the whisky very cloudy and even more exciting. Similar to WID: 114761
Which one is better - well - that depends on personal taste.
I like both - on some days the 2021 and on others the 2022. In between I like something completely different.
I am already looking forward to the next few weeks and will be happy to try the 2022 version several times.
Great what Bunna has brought to the market here as an original bottling.
This bottling will be sold again in a few days. However, the experience of the 2021 version shows the following - after just a few months, the bottles in the auctions are available again at almost the recommended retail price and shortly before the 2022 version was released, the 2021 versions were suddenly available again from many retailers. Therefore - wait and see - everyone who wants to buy such a bottle will get one. Don't pay too much and prefer to wait.
