    Nice, mature, sherry dark density. Old school. Tightly and beautifully woven.

    OMG an incredible nose! Could only smell for hours on the malt.
    Old school lavender nose. MEGA!

    Note by Wilson & Morgan;

    *Silver Medal at Malt Maniacs Awards 2011After the highly successful bottling from the same vintage released a few months ago, we never hoped to find another cask of very old Bunnahabhain with the same elegance and balance. Well, we were wrong. This new bottling is almost a twin brother, every drop just as magnificent! The same creamy, fruity, smooth and honeyed character, the same luscious richness and freshness which is rare for a malt of more than 40 years. Maybe this new expression seems just a touch more rich on minty flavours, and maybe very slightly more tannic. But even the most experienced palates would find it hard to say which one is more stunning. If you missed the previous 1968 bottling, now you have another chance to grab one before it’s too late.

    Serge says;

    Bunnahabhain 42yo 1968/2011 (45.5%, Wilson & Morgan, cask #3, 224 bottles)  W&M already had another excellent 1968 in 2011 (cask #12408, WF 90) Colour: pale gold. Nose: as expected, we’re close to the TWA, although this one would be a bit more floral and dry – just a bit. It’s maybe also a tad more complex, with very nice notes of botrytis, old Sauternes, a little leather, plum pie… And honey indeed but It’s say it’s rather lightly honeyed this time. Also a little coffee and toasted bread. Mouth: well, this liquid honey yet again, we’re extremely close to its predecessor here. Maybe it’s a notch fruitier (garden fruits). Finish: fairly long, with touches of mint and liquorice, just like in the TWA. Comments: similar style, similar quality. High quality, no need to say. SGP:551 - 90 points.
