  6. mrgood scored this whisky 90 points Expert Junior

    Bunna always seems to work soooo well with sherry!  I only sampled this, but would've bought a bottle immediately were it not so damned pricey.
    • Nose
      Chocolate shortbread, slight lime, heavy fruits, touch of seawater.  A sherry sweetie.
    • Taste
      Chocolate covered cherries, cola, black forest cake.
    • Finish
      Sherry-dipped chocolate.

    Well-aged Bunna, matured on an
    active sherry cask: always a pleasure.
    • Nose
      Oh, my, what a wonderfully sweet
      nose this Bunna has! Maraschino cherries, toffee apples, rum raisins, chewing
      tobacco. Forrest berries, blue grapes and a handful of nuts. Hint of shoe
      polish – sounds terrible, smells great. Some leather and loads of spices. Think
      nutmeg, aniseed and vanilla. The peat it all the way in the background,
      overpowered by the sweetness of the sherry cask. Wonderful!
    • Taste
      The arrival is powerful, spicy
      and sweet. Mouth coating and almost creamy. Wonderful balance between sweet and
      salt on the palate. The spices on duty are nutmeg, ginger, aniseed and
      liquorice. Midplate it turns mildly drying, but it remains fruit more than
      enough to be simply marvelous. Think plums, cherries, oranges and blueberries.
      This is pure enjoyment.
    • Finish
      The long finish leaves your mouth
      completely dry. It is warm and drying.

    (tasted at the opening of the bottle)

    Pretty closed. A bit bitter in the mouth. To let breathe.
    The sherry is rather fruity, and not sulfur. Peppered on the end.
