    a beautiful bunna and a good alternative to the 18 yo which is one of my beloved drams.
    same quality I´d say, perhaps a bit fresher
    89/100
    • Nose
      very leathery start, cigars, a little smoke, engine oil, dried fruits (sultanas and prunes), a little toffee, hints of rum.
    • Taste
      it has got a wonderful balance on the palate. the sherry influence has just the right intensity, it stays very fresh and appetizing. dried fruits, leather, tobacco, smoke. roasted nuts. so all in all very much the nose.
    • Finish
      medium in length, still very much in balance.

  4. Bishlouk scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    A beautiful peaty Bunna (smoked would be a more adequate term), balanced and consistent from start to finish. It lacks just a bit of finesse and pep to be extra.
    • Nose
      Big puff of sweet tobacco smoke. Caramel, fresh nuts. A good dose of brown sugar. And full of black fruits (blackberry, blueberry, plum). Beautiful power at the level of this nose, which does not fan easily and is even haunting limit.
    • Taste
      Gourmandise smoke to summarize. Black fruit syrup, brown sugar, tobacco, nuts, and always this smoke as a common thread.
    • Finish
      The woody smoke stays in the mouth for a long time. Black fruits stay with him for a while.
