    Youthful and fresh nose, that reminded me a bit of recent 3/4yo kilchoman drams I`ve tasted (although not quite up to the same level): wafts of peat mingling with fruity new-make spirit. Water brought through more malty tones, but the core nose remained essentially unchanged. Very fiery and untamed on the palate without water. Water tamed the fire and released earthy aspects mixed with spice and pepper. A bit of time in the glass added old leather and tobacco. Medium length finish with peat lingering towards the very end.

    Very young spirit, yet surprisingly long and strong in the mouth. It is easy on the nose, with familiar Islay smells (in the making).

    The heavy alcohol somewhat diminishes the sweetness that come with the Bunna but it`s finish is pretty awesome for such a young and thin spirit. 

    I think it takes courage to release a spirit of this age, especially on such a new label but the boys have done good. Another hit for the Archives bunch. No bad, lads, no bad.
