      A ship's rope with nougat, salty, malty (malt beer) and Amarena cherries. A bit dusty-old but interesting. liquorice

    I must say that this one is not easy to score... The nose was quite fantastic, the mouth a little less exiting, and the finish could have been longer. Still, this is very nice malt, but I had high expectations for a 45 yo, too bad it didn't match all of them.

    Tasted at Whisky Live Paris 2015.
    • Nose
      Very, very light smoky notes, as if there used to be some peat inside this, which would be very surprising from Bunna. This is fruity, and seems to be quite fragile, as if it could collapse in a second. Some malty and vegetal notes in the background. This is a nice nose in the whole but maybe a little too "bland" if I may say so.
    • Taste
      Very fresh, on very nice vegetal notes, but sadly this is a bit too weak... Yes, the age can be felt here but the counterpart is a loss of punch.
    • Finish
      Surprisingly too short... Unfortunately
