  1. Kantenmechaniker scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    The smoke is clearly in the foreground, which I like when there are other interesting notes behind it. This is here, with a reduction in the finish, also the case. Water is not recommended and do not need it!
    • Nose
      Significantly strong smoke, fermented and rotten fruit, plums and raisins, dark fruits, not easy, over everything lies leather & tobacco, a little moss and heather, clearly iodine, slightly nutty and also some chocolate, water does not help, but makes the whisky flatter and sharper
    • Taste
      Again, first strong smoke and iodine, very strong in the mouth, slightly alcoholic, again the ripe fruit, sweet and sour at the same time, some oak with old leather, with water it is also in the mouth a little sharper
    • Finish
      everything superimposed smoke, rather dry

    Recommended young peated Bunna.
    • Nose
      Powerful and tingling but nevertheless a little closed due to the high alcohol content. My first impression is a mossy peatiness and wet wool with almond notes. hints of citrus fruits. Fresh, clean and pleasant.
    • Taste
      Powerful but not overpowering with a very pleasant peatiness. The peat concentration is moderate so that this is definitely no peat monster. Very similar to the nose. Quite simple but tasty.
    • Finish
      Long and warming like a peat fire all the way down from the mouth to the stomach. Develops some oaky, liquorice notes.
