This malt is a Bunnahabhain through and through, with the "maritime notes" (salt spray, herbs) dominate, the "typical sherry barrel flavors" (sherry, dark fruit) but remain absolutely in the background. In the finish dominate the oak flavors from the 26-year storage. A powerful malt for salt and herbal flavor lovers.
In this Bunnahabhain the herbal spice characterizes the first impression. It is followed by grapes and vanilla and a pleasant Mentholfrische. The whole thing is complemented by a delicate citrus note.
The start is neat, now the oak barrel, then the herbs and finally the light grapes. The cask strength of 50.9% is well integrated, but animates the scenery in the direction of "Bunna character".
This finish is strong, oak-accented and full of lightly salted herbs.
