    No too complex whisky.
    I have a suspicion that this is fairly young.

      Pleasant peat that translates into sweetness à la vanilla
    • Taste
      82 82

    Bunnahabhain 2005-2015, 46% alc.
    Bottler: Malts of Scotland
    Removal: Bourbon Hogshead No. 15034
    Region: Islay, Scotland

    Nose: Young and phenolic smoky, some of the sea. Pebble beach, algae and spray, also sea salt. It hides a really nice sweetness, pastries, caramel and vanilla cream. There are also slightly bitter grapefruit.

    Palate: First spreads the sweetness, vanilla sugar and caramel flow into all corners of the mouth. The single malt looks oily, after a few seconds slightly dry. With the dryness coming peat smoke and spices, some pepper, paprika and quite a touch of ginger (minimal).

    Departure: rather short, but comes back warming. However, not much in the taste, relatively simple: some smoke and a little sweetness, looks slightly watery.

    Conclusion: The dilution to 46% has opened the nose really great, it's really fun, in return, unfortunately, the finish has suffered something underneath.

    83/100 points (tasted 2015, approx. 60 €)
