    Very delicious, intense, complex and exciting. The best bunna I have ever had in the glass.
    • Nose
      Lemon, leather, tobacco, forest soil, mushrooms, fresh tree bark, orange juice, orange oil, Jaffakeks, honey, mint, fresh laurel, thyme, celery and rhubarb, after a while daisies and daisies, some licorice, then grapefruit and tangerine peel fresh while peeling, Currant leaves, round plums - great, interesting, multi-layered nose, some water opens the aromas
    • Taste
      oily, sweet, spicy, more spice, pepper, the typical Bunna tree juice, lemon, orange, tangerines, then again the grapefruit, honey, latte, then the laurel and thyme crystallizes from the deep, marble cake with chocolate icing, plum jam, clove pepper , Nutmeg, cinnamon, some licorice and thin black tea - oh yes, that's delicious!
    • Finish
      long, sweet and spicy, with lots of baking cocoa and citrus, currant leaves, freshly grated, earthy, slightly leathery ... mmmh ... the baking cocoa and the sweet and spicy notes stick in the mouth, the salivation does not stop ...

    On the nose this is a fruity bourbon malt - I would never have typed Sherry - on the palate slight dry sherry note, but mainly oak, oak, oak - fart-dry mouth - awesome and only for perverts :)
    • Nose
      Immediately you realize that you have a Bunna in the glass - fed the typical Bunnanase flows with some "dry" tannins and a light coastal touch on the edge of the glass. Very oily, creamy and creamy, you will find sweetened lemon, old creamy, delicate but very voluminous oak intertwined with floral scent - orange oil meets green tea with jasmine flowers, orange oil, orange blossom, sour orange juice, wax, sour plums - it is warmed up more and more fruity with the ingenious oak note in the background, so let's go
    • Taste
      Oak full - dry, astringent, creamy, waxy, balsam, spicy, light oak, bark, tree sap, bay leaf, olive wood, pinewood, herbal spiciness, tannins, tannins, walnut shells, slightly sour delicate sweetness, plums, lemon, pepper
    • Finish
      delicate, waxy, fresh oak aromas, medium, rather mild
