Gentle smoke, salty, kind of rubbery, grassy, some traces of blossoms, honey, citron, some sweets, kind of unbalancend and balanced at the same time. Interesting, maybe a bit young?

Limoen, as, rum, laurier. Beetje uit balans, een beetje "leeg". Verder wel lekker, prima borrel.


Geproefd @ Whiskyclub Spakenburg

Au nez,la douceur veloutée de la tourbe qui prend les narines!
En bouche,la tourbe directement ,puis l'air iodé et des coques puis le malt,les fruits arrivent après,sans réelle séparation!
En finale,des épices ressortent,puis tourbe monolithique,le malt à nouveau et de la crème.
Un NAS amélioré où la tourbe omniprésente donne un caractère austère à ce whisky.

Nose
A full fresh and sweet whisky with aromas of oily smoke, ash, honey, grass, floral tones, fennel, subtle licorice root, bitter oak, metallic tones, aniseed, vanilla, candied lemon zest, backed apple, tea, resin, hint of banana peel and oak.

Taste

A sweet, herbal and a tad rough whisky with aromas of metallic tones, pepper, smoke, peat, fennel, licorice root, bayleaf, eatery tones, honey, tannins, malt, hay, apple, lemon zest, a hint of orange, chili pepper, hint of sea salt and bitter oak.

Finish

A medium, warm and slightly drying finish with aromas of sweet smoke, tannins, acacia honey, apple, metallic tones, citrus and oak.

Comments
I could clearly identify this as a Bunna. But I also had to conclude this was not to my likings. it’s a bit rough and feels too young. It was not really pleasant to drink. The metallic tones are quite dominant and it feels like this whisky didn’t had the time to fully mature and balance out.
I’d rather have an better matured Bunnahabhain.

Tasted blind during PO2016
