- Unfortunately I'm not a fan of sweaty socks erm, sulphur, it's also a bit too drying for me.
I recommend adding water galore
Heavy sherry notes, dry oak, rubber, leather boots, a bit of sweaty socks (sulphur?), toffee, sugar cane, burned sugar, spices, cinnamon - hmm, let's see resp. taste
Punchy, strong wood notes, rather dry, still leather boots and sweaty socks, some toffee notes, dark chocolate
Long, burning, drying
- intense, dirty, briny sherry malt, got some character, not easy, but worth a try, no water needed
alcohol, intense aroma, sirupy sweetness, raisins, dried date, touch of peat smoke, sherry, briny,
alcohol, sherry sweetness, thick, briny, intense oak, chocolate, then those fruity aromas from the nose, winy mouthfeel, gunpowder, licorice, prickles, partially fermented young wine
long, briny, oak, dry, peat smoke again
- For the issue price of about 70 euros was the Ok. The partly outstanding reviews "initial taste", "body" and "finish" I can not quite share, but I tend to tend more to the bourbon barrels. From my point of view, this Bunnahabhain is slightly overrated by SV. Since I had much better - for significantly less money.
- Tasted blind. It reminds me of a combination between A'Bunadh and Mortlach 16 (F&F) - but lower quality.
Quite sharp with some sulphur. Oloroso and vegetables. After 10-20 minutes it becomes more balanced and complex with notes of chocolate, nuts and dried apricots.
The taste seems not as edgy as the taste, but there is still sulphur. The main flavor is nuts.
It is like the sherry is over the top and filled with raisins and oloroso.
- Nose: Big
Sherry nose. A brown sugar/burnt toffee kind of sweetness. Then I get some raisins
and other dried fruits. Christmas cake spices. In the background there is a bit
of soft woody notes and chocolate.
Starts sweet and spicy. Clove and all spice. Then the fruit flavours become more
dominant with raisins and some oranges or orange marmalade. A bit of nuts or
almonds then some coffee and chocolate also appears.
sweetness disappears slowly and leaves the finish dry and spicy. Pleasant
bitterness like what you have from dark chocolate or at good espresso. It is quite
a long finish.
really like this one. Without water the alcohol is a bit too much in the
foreground. Perhaps there is a very faint burnt rubber note in the background,
but it disappears completely with water and a bit of time in the glass. Then it
is really great.
- Blind tasting.
Fudge, orange, spices, butter scotch and some pepper.
Meat spices, orange and floral - roses.
Long with chocolate, some nutmeg, floral - lavender and pepper. Fudge, liquoirce, cloves and later raisins.
- Alcohol, strong aromas, sticky-sweet, raisins, dates, some smoke, sherry, maritime / salty, strong oak, chocolate, a little vinous in the mouth, honey, licorice, sparkling, New Year's bullfighter / gunpowder, Federweisser ... A fierce, dirty Sherrymalt, full of character, not easy, but a great, intense experience, I have not diluted.
Undiluted, the alcohol is superficial. After adding water slightly salty note (reminiscent of sea breeze), citrus. Behind are sweet, dark fruits (raisins, plums).
Tried exclusively after adding water: The dark fruits come through first, here again a trace of ocean (salty), dark chocolate, walnut and black coffee.
soft and warm
