    [November, 2015]  Together with friends I emptied bottle no. 169 that I bought for 80 Euro in October, 2014.In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 90.  My notes state a very vanilla-ish profile that nevertheless shows a nice complexity.

    Beautiful old Bunnahabhain.
    • Nose
      Nice nose, fruity, pineapple, but also something old, slightly moulder, oak, vanilla, sewing machine oil. Pretty complex nose, fun.
    • Taste
      Strong, vanilla, oak, liquorice, some pepper. With water more oak, tingling, citrus, cloves and a beautiful pepper note.
    • Finish
      medium length, citrus, tart oak, some salt and vanilla.
