    After the 2002 SV (ID 52996) this one is actually really good.
    • Nose
      Vanilla, green fruits, almonds, dry hay, hints of toffee, honey
    • Taste
      Punchy, oily, liquorice, fruity, much vanilla, dried apricots - not bad
    • Finish
      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
    • Nose
      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
    • Taste
      without: red fruit, raisins, the alcohol tingles something / with: oak, malt, coffee, lemon, pepper
    • Finish
      without: laaaang, oak, sweetness, some firecrackers / with: the oak sounds

  7. Andytka3 scored this whisky 76 points Connoisseur

    N-
    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.

    P-
    Burst of sweet earthy herbs, fine olorosso sherry with good spiciness.
    Slightly overdone, tasty but lack finesse and a slightly twisted
    Bunnahabhain.

    F- Soothing and good strength. Pickle ginger.

  9. p4blo scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Very nice classical sherry profile, clean and fruity.
    • Nose
      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.
    • Taste
      Tons of oranges, mango, pineapple, bananas, toffee, caramel, cherries, raisins. Fruity, intense and rich. The light side of sherry cask, but very nice nonetheless.
    • Finish
      Medium long, gentle spices and the fruitiness continues.
