Notes from a blind tasting of this and https://www.whiskybase.com/whiskies/whisky/78179/bunnahabhain-2007-sv-moine
This tasting took place outdoors and under different conditions than the last one, so the notes are probably much different than last time. In terms of taste I agree with myself, today he would have got 87 points, so I do not change the 88 points now.
Unique smoke profile at first, reminiscent of a chemical fire with fruit / caramel impact. After use, the notes are better integrated, the smoke gets more campfire characteristics and forms an olfactory unit with caramel and freshly cut grass. Because of the chemical fire, I'm typing here on the Bunnahabhain Mòine. When heating first a lot of candied yellow fruits and then coal dust and campfire with caramel, so in principle as in the beginning. Now here with some imagination cowshed.
Ui, that's hot! Neat chilli right at the front, to thickened Fruchtmus. At the top of the palate, some acidity settles, strongly astringent. Later dark malt and back tannins.
The sweetness is quickly gone, the chili for a long time, yet he warms up. Now in the finish you really mean something to have on the tongue, he is very farmy. Later, this farmnote ebbs away a bit.
