This is a very long, maybe too long matured Bunnahabhain. The barrel strength is only just over 40%, which is why it is also very mild and somewhat soft-felted.
Despite the long storage in the wood only slightly bitter, clear spicy notes, restrained fruit, some sweetness and slight saltiness. Also some lavender soap, which I do not find disturbing. Is for me more of a badge for whiskys from times gone by and I'm glad to be allowed to drink such rarities from time to time. This sweetheart definitely needs a lot of time in the glass. Nothing for quick enjoyment. Best a Spiegelau glass with a lot of volume and warm well. Then this old school gentleman of a whisky is a lot of fun. I have 88 points. I would have liked to have 6 to 8 years younger with 46 - 48% in the glass.
