    Very sweet and aromatic, great nose! There is a little cardboardy note in the palate. The price is too high!

    Consists of juice from five 1968 vintage [ex-Bunna so i was told] sherry butts. So Caol Ila meets Bunna then?

    N: All of the mango products.
    T: Fruity & liquid sooty ash.
    F: After all the fruity action follows 45 years of cask softness.
    C: Speciality roll out another masterpiece.Scores an A-

    Fantastic, initially very fruity, sweet. Secondary peat and a little smoke. Very smooth, not dry at all. And medium to long finish.
