Nose

Boy, this is a very sweet nose, but with a wonderful coastal side to it, albeit somewhat hidden under the dark fruits. Dades and prunes, mostly that last, upholstered with mint and camphor. Some cough syrup. No, make that liquorice candy. Whiff of salt. Pretty complex.

Taste

It is slightly oily on the palate. Liquorice candy and liquorice tower over the caramel and the fruit. Rather clean (and I do like my Bunna dirty). It makes the transition from sweet to brine with the grace of a tightrope walker.

Finish

In the sweet finish, that is long and slightly drying towards the end, it is again nothing but liquorice candy that stays behind.

Comments

If this is the standard quality of the bottles from The Queen of the Moorlands, then it is easy to see why they have so many members. Devine stuff. Thanks to Whiskysamples, where you can still find it.
