Very peaty and un-Bunny like. Incense and lint. Dried tea. Fabric
softener. Water loosens it up a bit and allows cereal notes to emerge.
More peat. Slightly stinging delivery, but delicious. Gets you chewing
right away. Strong tea and chewing tobacco. A little creosote? The
flavours are remarkably focused even when water is added
Longish and definitely chewy. Still this concentration of flavours centred around the peat. Water does little to ease that.
I don't really get any of the Bunnahabhain character in this dram. The
peat is overwhelming and perhaps a little disappointing for that. Don't
get me wrong this is not unpleasant drinking, but the unrelenting
peatiness may be an acquired taste. It reminds me of the current Classic
of Islay NAS CS which I grew to love and now miss. I think I could
learn to love this too.
It's better to have drunk it all than never to have drunk at all.
