    It goes against my taste, this oriental, but also with beautiful fruit and almost perfumed nose, yummy.
    • Nose
      Beautiful nose, dried apricots, peaches as well, to Mediterranean herbs such as lavender, rosemary, thyme, camphor, nutmeg, saffron, licorice, has almost something perfumed with deeper inhalation, cedar, red apple, brown sugar
    • Taste
      Incense sticks, peaches dried with herbs, great herbal honey, Mediterranean, lavender, rosemary, ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon, nuts, leather, raisins, yellow plums, cherries, Christstollen, grapefruit peel, licorice
    • Finish
      Camphor, yellow plums, tannins, cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, lavender, medium-long, dry-herbaceous

    Blindverkostung
    • Nose
      Pleasantly fruity and spicy. Oranges. Citrus fruits. Peaches. A pinch of freshly ground pepper. Caramel. Again and again alcohol notes flash up, which could close on young barrels. At the same time, the malt has matured due to a large portion of oak bitterness. This interplay, these corners and edges make the whisky interesting.
    • Taste
      Sweet start with a lot of spice. Honey. Caramel. Pepper. Ginger. Peaches. Oak.
    • Finish
      Medium. Peaches. A lot of oak flavor, but also a decent alcohol sting. The finish is unfortunately a bit disappointing compared to the nose and the taste.

    A friend of mine wrote 'Barad Dur' on the sample bottle he sent me. Does anyone have the One Ring and a map to Mount Doom? Because I want to bring this new wood tower down.

  7. Shane_IL scored this whisky 74 points Expert Senior

    A bit disappointed, I've come to hold Bunnahabhain to a very high standard and this just didn't live up to it. I found the palate and finish to be very flat.
    • Nose
      There was a bit of a young spirit bite at first but I just let it sit and after about 10 min it calmed down. Big rich wood up front, definitely some older whisky in here too. Creme brulee. Toffee. Orange peel. Dark chocolate. Vanilla essence (the bottled stuff not pods). Sultanas. Stewed pears. Gingerbread. Cinnamon sticks.
    • Taste
      Wood. More wood. Woodspice. Citrus juice. Liquorice. Cinnamon. Schweppes Bitter Lemon. Some aged rum notes. Toast.
    • Finish
      Medium-long. Bitter citrus. Dry wood. Bit of honey and more woodspice

  9. Cicero did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    very interesting (in a good way), this sweet peach is amazing, dangerously tasty, no wonder it is in a 1l bottle
    • Nose
      no smoke, but again typically "dirty"; that's what I call this note, which I always have with Bunnahabhain, and which inspires me so much at the moment. Lots of vanilla and a lot of toffee, a little bourbon-like, distant sea, brown caramel, nuts
    • Taste
      Nut chocolate, sweet yellow peach, honey and nuts again

  10. Gloin scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Blind tasting:   I like the whisky very much, it reminds me of an 18 year old Braes of Glenlivet from Cooper's Choice. I think about 15 years and maturing in ex-Bourbon barrel. I put the distillery in the Speyside or Highlands. I give 85 points.
    • Nose
      Yellow fruits, quince, lemon, spicy, neat oak, I have to think of old white wine; the whisky is complex, it is difficult to name individual flavors
    • Taste
      Strong onset, slightly sweet and sour, again ripe yellow fruit, spicy oak, vanilla, but not sweet, but spicy
    • Finish
      The presence of oak in the smell and taste made me expect a bitter finish, but that's not the case; Although it tastes of oak, but only with little bitterness. The finish is medium long.
