    This is one of those whiskies that makes you believe in the good old days... I remember seeing this whisky just a few years ago online for less than 100€... The plate sounded very good : Bunnahabhain 1979, 20 years, cask strength etc... But why was it still available? Don't know... Hesitated Airlines bit But bought a bottle with a friend... Turns out to be great stuff... And the online shop had more bottles... Bought another one and another one later thinking wow very good stuff whenever I had one... They still had more and I thought no rush... But suddenly it was gone, shame on me, should have bought the whole thing when it was available and only in hindsight you realize what a Fucking opportunity that was... Anyway great stuff. Love it and thank God I have more :)

    N: very gentle, briny, fruity, some lovely sherry notes with spiced cake

    P: powerful and lovely spices from the oriënt and drying

    F: gentle spicy start, fruity with a whiff of sweetness

    C: very, very nice.
