A pleasant distillate! After the whisky has been swirled several times in the glass, it flows slowly with thick legs on the glass wall. At the same time a clear aura forms around the glass, dark fruits, grapes, reminds a little of sherry.
In the nose it is quite mild, soft and round. Only with beautiful fruit notes, coupled with aromas, which I have often found in Bunnahabhain to have found so towards dry clam shells, a breeze of salt air, while pleasantly fresh. With a little time in the air, a tingling peppery note is added. That he has lain in wine barrels, he shows quite clearly. The present sweetness fits quite well. The longer it stays in the glass, the more it changes, remains a little at the now appearing aromas such as the pepperiness, before he sways back again ... was there just a subtle mint note?
On the palate: wow, the first contact, a board, a balancing act. Strong, full-bodied, spicy hot, tingling on the tongue .... The second sip, not quite as extreme. Slightly salty and also here, I say Bunnahabhain taste, full-bodied and soft, dry, light bitter notes Finisch: soft, a little warming in the stomach with delay, remains quite strong and clear on the tongue, reminiscent of a salt crust, dry, beautiful fruit sweetness, spicy.
I liked it.
