    LMDW4!
    • Nose
      bunna non tourbé de loin,avec un paquet bien gras de moisissure,de fruits murs(raisins) ,de cacao ,de champignons
      du vieux cuir aussi ,du malt bien présent
    • Taste
      après la sensation éthylique assez prenante,on retrouve des épices bien en place,le sherry caractéristique ,peut être même trop présent avec les marqueurs indéniables,fruits confits un peu trop murs,sur pêche,mandarines,raisin,griotte,de la moisissure,de la poussière,un peu d'encaustique et du cuir provenant d'un fauteuil d'une étude d'huissier en pré retraite,ça sent le moisi
      le bois imbibé et séché à la fois donne un retour très agréable,avec le chocolat noir à fort pourcentage,presque amer
    • Finish
      pour cet âge,finish long ,varié ,qui dure,sherry en avant,puis le bois et le cuir s'entrechoquent

    Well - another Bunnahabhain. Unconventional and fun, but also too expensive for the price. There are much better single casks.
    • Nose
      Strange! What's this? A grain whisky with strong sherry? Something between grain, sherry, red fruit, espresso, dark (dust-dry) chocolate and coffee powder wafted through my nose. Sounds crazy, it is somehow too.
    • Taste
      Again - where do these Grain notes come from? The sherry influence unmistakable and strong, although the malt comes to me too impetuous and wild. Some oak, fruit notes and somehow immature. Unfortunately not as crazy varied as in the nose
    • Finish
      Medium long, strong. Is becoming increasingly dry, but no bitterness.

  4. Owidram scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Coffee grain notes both on the nose and in mouth. which are both very aromatic and expressive.

    Sherry impact is obvious and very qualitative, with no sulfur at all. 

    It is a big dram, that shows real complexity for the young age. and finish is quite long.

    Very good dram.

  5. Achany scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    intense sherry! driet apricots, walnuts, a little moldy, some cacao, then there are spices, pepper, a bit malty as well, dark berries, intense, complex. wonderful dram! as it was a limited edtion it is hard to restock
