    A tasty bunnahabhain with a twist. I like!
    • Nose
      84 84
      Oil, salty, light sherry influences such as red fruit and caramel.
    • Taste
      86 86
      The typical bunna does not lack. It is a bit bitter, this must not have been overly sweet sherry. I like it. In summer, as a wheat beer can be sweet with a bitterness. Or is that not a suitable comparison :)
    • Finish
      84 84
      The finish is quite spicy for only 46%. Alcohol feels sharp, finish does not linger very long. Little complexity, no change in taste, but certainly not bad.

    A drop of water strengthens all the aromas from nose to finish !!!
    • Nose
      Malty, spices, Mon Cherry, an intense sweetness plays all these scents.
    • Taste
      Strong, full-bodied, sweet, the cherry of Mon Cherry is still there but very little of the dark chocolate. Extremely fruity. The spices are subtly in the background. Malty sweetness.
    • Finish
      Nice and warm. Long lasting and varied.

    Would never think this is Bunnahabhain. A bit too simple.
    • Nose
      Caramel sweetness & vanilla. Some grainy notes. 
    • Taste
      Alkohol speaks at first, followed by some sweetness. Very salty. Ham.
    • Finish
      Salted caramel. Short.
