From Serge at whiskyfun.com

Bunnahabhain 11 yo 1994/2006 ‘Manzanilla Finish’ (46%, Dun Bheagan, casks #90361/90362, 1590 bottles) Star3.5.jpg   Colour: pale gold. Nose: fresh and honeyed at the start, with a little iodine and also caramel. Gets then rather fruity (apples) and leathery, with also hints of incense and cigarette tobacco. Hints of cooked butter and custard, orange cake… Nothing revolutionary but this one's pleasantly soft.
Mouth: sweet, honeyed, slightly sour (sauce for dim-sums) and quite salty at the attack. Notes of toasted brioche, crystallized oranges, caramel… One that reminds me of the official 12yo. Lots of apple juice as well. Finish: medium long, on caramel, overripe apples and with again a little salt. Good finishing – Manzanilla seems to wok well. 83 points.
