  2. Falnor scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Complex, subtle and strong. I'm loving these 1989 bunna's. Kintra and
    Whisky leiden
    also got similar casks.  
    • Nose
      Green bananas and other fresh fruit. Chalk, minerals. So quite coastal
      and different.
    • Taste
      Peat! Yeah, not to be expected from a 80's bunna, because in those days
      they 'didn't use' smoky whisky. Still it is far from a Caol ila or Ardbeg, more
      like an Ardmore.
      Apple, seaweed, vanilla, ammonium chloride, liquorice.
    • Finish
      Medium long, not that fruity or dry. Mostly on minerals and woodsmoke

  3. DunklerRabe scored this whisky 84 points Expert Junior

    Pretty straight forward whisky. Not very complex, easy to drink with
    light fruits in nose and taste and a sweetness towards the end,
    combining with oak spices and bitterness to a finish with medium length.
