  2. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Top, top, top Bunna, with 3-6% more, he would have probably loose 2 more points, multilayered, delicious, great part.
    • Nose
      Crunchy hazelnut chocolate, chestnut, nutmeg, lavender, camphor, fresh coffee, forest honey, autumn leaves, raisins, old oak, cinnamon, marzipan, some black bread, salami, some blood orange, later also bitter orange
    • Taste
      Again, the mix of typical Bunna chocolate, all kinds of nuts and chestnuts, grapefruit rests, wild honey, autumn leaves, raisins, camphor, lavender, nutmeg, cinnamon, rye bread, ham, burnt butter, black cherry, has something of a tour through the forest including contents in autumn and picnic
    • Finish
      Bitter orange, resin, raisins, lavender, rye bread, long, dry-sweet

  3. Kantenmechaniker scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    A few percent more might have teased out something here, especially in the nose and mouthfeel. Otherwise, there is nothing wrong. Great variety of flavors.
    • Nose
      a rather light nose, nutty, espresso, a bit musty, plums, with some acidity, slightly floral, cocoa, a hint of peppermint, creamy with caramel
    • Taste
      creamy, sweet, full-bodied, plum jam, chocolate, light perfume, floral, espresso, some oak, slightly tart, the mouthfeel is generally a bit watery, but its taste is not flat due to its low alcohol content
    • Finish
      aftertaste, bitter, grapefruit, clearly grated hazelnuts, pleasant and medium long

    mhh an addictive nose - just my thing - so inimitably delicious - old and cool - unfortunately a little "thin" he could concentrate / have more intense flavors to be perfect - only where is the sherry? For me this is a classic high-quality bourbon barrel in the nose and on the palate
    • Nose
      wow - old - wonderful ripe, elegant, irresistible oak - mild, after flower nectar noble sweet spicy scented. Green tea, jasmine flowers - creamy, oily - smooth, removes nuts, old rotten oak, complex interwoven citrus notes
    • Taste
      slightly sweet - very delicate, noble, round, filigree, green tea with flowers, some mint with wax and citrus on the palate, delicately malted, some tobacco, sweet slightly sparkling spicy oak with complex herbs - very nice old
    • Finish
      sweet, sparkling, complex, fruity, perfectly round lemon, ginger and spicy oily tobacco leaves - delicate chocolate notes
