    Balanced with interwoven aromatic and fruity notes, unobtrusive sherry nose, oak, vanilla

    Slightly spicy, sweetish-tart with notes of fruit, spices, and delicate oak notes in the finish.

    Herb-sweet with oak spices, soft, dry
    Finally, sweetish with hints of sherry and soft oak finish.

  8. Whisky-Connaisseur did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    This is an excellent dram! The sherry isn't overpowering at all. This
    helps to underline the fruitiness and sweetness of this beauty and to
    balance them with a very pleasant spiciness in a perfect manner. One of
    the best Bunnahabhain whiskies over 20 years old I've had in the glass. A
    dream malt at very reasonable price.

    I thank Joe Seidel from Joe's Malt Shop for the sample!

    • Nose
      A pleasant fruity start on the nose with ripe apples, yellow cherries
      mixed with pink grapefruit. Discreet vanilla sweetness and subtle
      Demerara sugar arrive with lingering cinnamon, cloves and gentle oak.
      Very complex and inebriant!
    • Taste
      Very fruity on the palate with a delicious mix of ripe apples, yellow
      pears, carambola, and slightly bitter notes of pink grapefruit and
      orange peel. Gently austere and prickling sweet, like bitter lemon
      drink, accompanied by a very nice and warming spiciness of cinnamon,
      cloves, ginger, white pepper and a touch of oak. Smooth and delicate!
    • Finish
      The finish is long and sticky sweet with yellow plum jam, and acacia
      honey. Becomes slightly bitter with notes of pink grapefruit and orange
      peel, followed by a lingering warmth of cinnamon and spiced oak.

      WITH WATER: Clean and fresh on the nose with a splash of water. Oak
      comes to the fore with a subtle smokiness in the back. Fruity and sweet
      on the palate with significantly more spiciness. Warm and intense. The
      finish is a bit shorter with water. Delicate fruit and honey sweetness
      linger towards the spicy end.
