- This one gets better along the way, but is not really one of the Bunna's I've tasted.
Red fruits, berries, but some strange rubber-like smell as well...
A little pepper, spicy, some red fruits, and some notes of chocolate.
Pretty much peppers, coffe, caramel and chocolate. Middle long.
- N: slightly briny, winey and sherry (reduced: more aromatic)
P: briny, wine, fruity (reduced: more flavors, even better)
F: warm, spicy, vanilla
C: A fine Bunnahabhain but they could skip the red wine finish
- Tasted during a Malts of Scotland "Rollercoaster-tasting" October 2016
nose: raspberries, spicy, mocha, reminds me of some sweet red wines. not much further to it.
taste: clearly red wine cask influence in the taste. hints of leather and wood tannines.
finish: quite dry and a little bit astringent. grapes and prunes.
- Not the best. The oak was quite active, delivering some cloying (off)notes. Maybe that's why they reduced it to 46%.
A trace of wood smoke, with spice, but otherwise lots of red fruit: plums, cherries, berries. It has about the same level of "dampness" that you can get from sherry matured whiskies. Apart from this, there is nothing substantial to be detected, maybe a bit of malt.
Slightly salty, but actually much drier than you'd expect. It starts with stewed red fruit (compote) and orange juice. Then, bitter chocolate, malt and cinnamon enter the palate, followed by grape seeds, clove, ginger and pepper. A strange walnut note intermingles.
Rather short and drying. Mainly grape seeds and ginger, followed by prune. Finally, bitter chocolate.
- Blind tasting: Very oily in the glass and in the mouth. Alcohol great involved. 43-45%? The smell of a sherry, but the rest says some red wine? Max. 10 years? Oily, salty - something from the coast, Springbank? In any case, a delicious and interesting bottling.
Sweet, ripe plums and raisins, at the beginning vanilla and oak notes, then malty and salty. Very nice and pleasant nose, reminiscent of sherry.
Nice smooth and oily in the mouth. Sweet first, then spicy. Fresh and dried berries, sherry reminds nothing here. Alcohol is great involved.
Sweet grapes, which are driven away by the immediately emerging incredible spice. Finish short to medium. Towards the end it gets salty and oak again.
- Single cask scotch with passable price-performance ratio.
