  11. GlenSikkes did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Note by Wilson & Morgan;

    At Wilson & Morgan, we care only for the quality of the content and not for age statements on the bottle, but only a very long maturation could bring such a soft character and mouthcoating feel to this stunning Bunnahabhain.
    Never tired or with the excess of tannins too often typical of very old whiskies, it still manages to be vibrant, sweet, youthful and fresh: nose and palate are rich on tropical fruits (banana, mango, passion fruit) and ripe oranges, with a perfect balance between honey sweetness, a firm mineral character and a slightly dry and peppery finish. Propolis, beeswax, aniseed and just a soft touch of oak complete the flavour palette. One of the most refined, luscious, subtle and creamy malts we have ever bottled.

  12. GlenSikkes did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Serge says;

    Bunnahabhain 42 yo 1968/2011 (44.1%, Wilson & Morgan, sherry butt, cask #12408, 436 bottles)  According to the excellent bottlers, this baby is their oldest malt whisky ever. Colour: full gold. Nose: beautiful! Well in the style of some other old lightly sherried Bunnies (or Glenlivets, or Caperdonichs), with this perfect combination of melliferous flowers (don’t laugh!) and ripe, juicy fruits. Plums, honey and then something flinty, mineral and slightly grassy. Quite some mead as well, orange squash, touches of cinchona, tonic water… It’s all very lively, a venerable whisky that hasn’t bowed its head yet, far from that. After a few minutes, more notes of fern and fresh mint leaves wit a faint mustiness, much pleasant here. Mouth: great! The fruitiness strikes first ad the oak comes only in tiny waves, with no tannic burst at all (which can happen with such old whiskies). The combination gives us notes of bitter oranges (and orange blossom water), spearmint, ginger, mint-flavoured marshmallows (sort of), marzipan and a little Cointreau. Finish: long and rather more herbal (Jägermeister), with more pepper in the aftertaste. Comments: what’s quite fantastic here is how the oak added some great mentholated notes to the spirit instead of the usual dryness and tannicity. A precious mint liqueur? SGP:461 - 90 points.
