  1. dRambo scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    sehr geil und superkomplex - wenn man ein Haar in der Suppe sucht - bissl sehr zart, filigran - man muss sehr viel Ruhe haben, um ihm zuzuhören
    • Nose
      Wax, beeswax, furniture polish, sandalwood, delicate smoke, jasmine, subtle smoke
    • Taste
      sanft und würdevoll gereift - ganz klar als Bunna zu erkennen - schöne Bunnakräuter, feinster prickelnder sehr abgebauter Rauch, feine Eiche, fruchtige Säure, Apfelkompott, ein Hauch Anis - der in Blütennoten, Minze und Geranienlaub aufgeht - Wachs
    • Finish
      delikate feine Kräuter - getrocknete Blüten, leicht trocken, feine Eichenfracht, sehr lang und voll

  2. Achany scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    sweet, fruity, blossoms, that was the first impression! after the first wave of yellow fruits, plums, apples the spices and herbs kick in. oaky, malty, even a bit grassy. But incredible complex, super well balanced. what a nice dram this is! (WSZ17)

    Tasting Notes by Douglas Laing & Co
    • Nose
      A fresh and fragrant with waxy apples, freshly cut wood, beeswax and soft spices. 
    • Taste
      The palate opens with a spicy apple compote quality, and develops to oak and tobacco.
    • Finish
      A long, still sweetly spiced finish with a ginger and lime zesty quality and chocolate.
