    This is really a X-mas dram: sweet, warming, cake and chocolate.

    Another excellent choice by the Whiskybase shop team and definitely worth its price. Thanks a lot for the sample.
    • Nose
      Wow - this is delicious!!! Warming and fruity at first nosing. Smells like plum in madeira marzipan chocolates. Oranges and high quality oloroso sherry. I also get some red berry jam, kumquat and dark honey aromas. Excellent.
    • Taste
      Tastes just as expected for a sherry cask matured Bunna. Dominated by an intensive oloroso sherry aroma. Also some German lebkuchen with a little cherry jam and weak notes of tea. Very good.
    • Finish
      Long and sherried, warming from deep inside. More and more tannins are coming up but it remains pleasant.

    Yet another interesting bottling from Archives
    • Nose
      First comes soft and pleasant notes of sherry, plums and raisins. Hidden behind the first impression comes vague tones of oak, dates and figs
    • Taste
      Enter the mouth with a bitter-sweet taste where the sweetness rather quickly is replaced by a woody taste of oak, bitter almonds, increasing spices and a very very vague touch of peat. 
    • Finish
      Long and spicy with bitter almonds staying in the mouth also after the spices have faded away
