      Nuttier, smokier. Caramel. The fruitiness more in the background now.

  6. P.A.O.K.you_are did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Bunnahabhain 1968/2011 (43.8% Whisky-Fässle, refill sherry)
    Colour: pale gold. Nose: and yet again, we’re in the same ballpark.
    Most probably a sister cask. Maybe this one is a tad quieter and has a
    little more grass and green tea, but other than that, as I said, it’s
    globally the same whisky. Mouth: same. You could reread my notes for the
    Wilson & Morgan if you like ;-). Finish: same. This baby and the
    W&M are almost undistinguishable. Comments: what a great series of
    casks. I know these notes are too short, so now, I’m going to tell you
    the joke about a chef who always cooks with whisky and who, sometimes,
    even adds it to the food… Ahem. SGP:551 – 90 points.

    sample from a friend
    • Nose
      Honey and a melange of ripe fruits and tropical fruits, like a light and fermented nectar. Orange wedges, clementines, mango nibs, pineapple (non-acidic), guava, spun sugar, and even some vanilla, which turns a bit to the old oaky glue. Resinous fruit and pith. Something floral, less in a field as much as delicate fruit.
    • Taste
      Light and a little thin. A definite oak influence, yet gentle and thoroughly integrated. Honey and the same flowers, and then little drops of mango and clementine juice in a fine honey. Spun sugar a swell. You see where this is going.
    • Finish
      The oak yields something of vanilla and glue here, too. The fruit dissipates even as it becomes part of the honey (retrolfaction draws out everything). Sweet orange essence lurks in the rear - and then more juicy clementines. No water for this. It's thin and watery enough, just very delicious.

    Wow, a very good whiskyâ€
    • Nose
      Perfection! Really beautiful. Sweet. Honey. A lot of fruits: Apples, apricots, Galia melon, plums, oranges. And all very balanced. Wonderful.
    • Taste
      An extension of the nose. Still very rebellious for its age. Fully flavoured with more fruit. Gets also a bit malty and grassy.
    • Finish
      Long. Citrus fruits.
