  1. keizerjos scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Pale yellow, peated Bunna. I don't know what to think about it. I bought two bottles a few years ago because I thought they were rare - at Gall. Well, then I was young and happy. I opened one to be able to buy a Ferrari from another, smart investor like me.
    He's hot. Solid smoke but also chewing gum mint, grassy and jumpy. The honesty area tells me that this is bottle two; bottle one I sold after one dram, too much peat, then, for me. I knew a lot. And now I know nothing. There is some English licorice in it, the peppermint remains, a nice permanent smoke flavor hangs around it without becoming annoying. I like the ABV excellent, just right. The aftertaste is short and sharp, some salt and sea and then gone. The wind blows, so to speak. Great dram, great price, long story, short conclusion. 83 points.

    Well done, meets expectations quite well, young maritime smokers.
    • Nose
      Pleasant maritime smoke suits you, with a light fruity sweetness, salt, smoked fish, a little citrus, a little pepper, a little Bircher muesli, a pinch of cinnamon, the youth flashes from time to time
    • Taste
      sweet, vanilla, cinnamon, spicy smoke, here too salt, maritime, becoming drier, a hint of banana, also quite creamy, the mouthfeel changes from watery at first to more substance and creamy
    • Finish
      again the citrus notes from the nose, more towards the lime and dry, slightly nutty, the smoke remains ashy on the palate with a little salt, green apple appears briefly

  3. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    Already tasty and typical Bunna, but has very typical notes and 75% herbs, plus a little cheap aftertaste with alcohol despite only 46%
    • Nose
      Ginger, white pepper, camphor, lighter notes rather with a few flowers, herbal honey brighter with lavender and rosemary, salt and leaves, light toffee
    • Taste
      Light herbal honey everywhere, plenty of camphor, oregano, ginger, cardamom, nutmeg, white pepper, clove, thyme, rosemary, dry autumn leaves, cocoa powder, dark chocolate, black bread, sourdough, some salt
    • Finish
      Herbal honey, tannins, old curtains, salt, dark chocolate, black bread, medium-long

    A typical Bunnah, the very long finish makes it a little special.
