- Vanilla almond toffee honey stone fruits , very nice
- After the 2002 SV (ID 52996) this one is actually really good.
Vanilla, green fruits, almonds, dry hay, hints of toffee, honey
Punchy, oily, liquorice, fruity, much vanilla, dried apricots - not bad
Long and burning, spicy, peppery, not too much drying which is good
- a delicious whisky, where the finish with nose and palate can not match
without: sweet sweet, sweets from childhood, caramel, vanilla, very fruity, malt, pastries as in the confectionery, some cognacartites / with: later comes a slightly cheesy smell
without: red fruit, raisins, the alcohol tingles something / with: oak, malt, coffee, lemon, pepper
without: laaaang, oak, sweetness, some firecrackers / with: the oak sounds
Salted butter, whiff of raw leafy vegetables, soft coco at the back.
Soft and a contrast to the usual firm and chunky aroma of Bunnahabhain.
This is a much laid back.
Burst of sweet earthy herbs, fine olorosso sherry with good spiciness.
Slightly overdone, tasty but lack finesse and a slightly twisted
F- Soothing and good strength. Pickle ginger.

- Very nice classical sherry profile, clean and fruity.
Classical sherry cask influence with tons of orange zest, toffee, raisins, cherries, prunes, honey, bananas and mango. A hint of black tea. Very nice and clean.
Tons of oranges, mango, pineapple, bananas, toffee, caramel, cherries, raisins. Fruity, intense and rich. The light side of sherry cask, but very nice nonetheless.
Medium long, gentle spices and the fruitiness continues.
