    Very round malt, which is extremely tasty and will not last long. No crazy or unexpected notes, though I find a nuance in him that does not remind me of Bunnahabhain. A very nice example of a malt, which is very nice and round matured and still not boring.
    • Nose
      Sweet fruit strikes you first, oak comes from the background, well-integrated alcohol carries the flavors super. Fresh sweet and fruity notes go back with time, but the spice is more present over.
    • Taste
      Sweet mild malt, which despite the "only" 44.1% slightly warming and tingling in the mouth; Extremely tasty and round. The longer he stays in the mouth, the spicier he gets.
    • Finish
      Spicy oak stays behind in the mouth and is complemented by a nice fruitiness that emanates from the neck with every breath. In the mouth, after a while a relatively dry feeling is left behind.

    wow, so there's still something. An extremely well matured barrel, very intense experience, round and balanced without annoying notes. If you really want to criticize something: I would blindly never recognize it as Bunna, the (ingenious) barrel has the upper hand here. But nothing, cool part!
    • Nose
      a wonderfully matured, creamy Bourbon barrel paint, that is immediately clear. Dark forest honey, tart, anointed pear, blood orange and the approach of flower meadow. After a while waxy in the glass, old wooden furniture, but the fruit remains fully there.
    • Taste
      Here, too, extremely intense experience with massive oily fruit, also fully ripe orange and pear. With some soup spices, slightly salty, but not maritime.
    • Finish
      very long, fruity, sweet, no disturbing bitterness.

    Delicious dram in perfect drinking strength. I like it with its sweetness, the alcohol is well integrated.
    Especially the long finish changes nicely.

    Delicious Stöffchen!
