Ex sherry butt, 1st fill European oak with a beautiful dark colour.
Bunnahabhain usually has a maritime character, but not necessarily smoky. Tasted by over 20 agents from around the globe, our combined international palate found: tablet and treacle toffee on the nose, pumpernickel, hazelnuts, dryish, not as sweet smelling as a Speyside. Truffles were spotted. To taste, distinct saltiness, more treacle toffee, bacon, maple syrup and pancakes – in fact, an entire Canadian breakfast (and no Canadian judges). Caramelized red onion pops up, then Sushi nori and Soy sauce. Incredibly mature for its age. Most unusual for a Bunnahabhain.
