  1. sssun scored this whisky 90 points Expert Junior

    The interference of alcohol is obvious, and somewhat, heavy. However, it became better after some days after opened. A standard Bunnahabhain middle-age sherry cask.
    • Nose
      Alcohol interference first. Sherry, smoked plum, non-stopped alcohol, raisin, grass, coffee, tangerine peel, and a little bubble glue. 15 mins: alcohol reduces but it's still there, sherry, toffee, dry longan, raisin, and sweet malt. 30 mins: aromas weaken, toffee, raisin, grass, and sweet orange.
    • Taste
      Toffee, sherry, nuts, chocolate, pepper, raisin, tangerine, a little berry.
    • Finish
      Medium to long, nuts, chocolate, raisin, a little tannic and dry.
