"Bunnahabhain 1991 ‘A thread of smoke’ (46%, Wemyss Malts 2014, hogshead, 302 btl.)
Nose: rather excellent, with Bunnahabhains typical honeyed / fruity profile. Honeydew melon, peaches, redcurrant, yellow apples. Plenty of sweet honey. Also fresh almonds and hints of mint. After a while it displays subtle grassy notes and soft coastal notes. Maybe some damp earth. A nice balance of roundness and sharper notes. Mouth: citrusy, a little sharper now, with more zesty notes and some smoky notes indeed. Grapefruit, sweet lemon juice, a little salty liquorice and grasses. Pears in the background. Green tea and spices. Finish: long, grassy, with some salty notes and a balanced herbal bitterness.
A beautiful all-round Bunnahabhain, with fruity notes, coastal notes and traces of smoke. Around € 100. Should arrive in stores soon.
