- Best Bunna I had this year! Especially the nose is a peach ;)
Thanks Dirk, great sample
Fantastic combination of fruitiness and waxiness. A lot of furniture polish, wax , woodchips and a bit of earth on one side of the nose, the other side is full of pineapples, peaches and very ripe bananas. And very well integrated. Beautiful nose
Bunnahabhain profile is more apparent in the taste. Some malti- and meatiness. A bit more raw than the nose. Reminds me a lot of modern standard Bunna expressions like the 18 and the 25, but better. Same combination of sherry notes (yes, I know this is a hogshead) and coastal notes with a meaty character. Still an abundance of tropical fruits, but somewhat in the background now.
The finish is tingling and gets a bit bitter. But that's a little downside. The other flavours from the mouth are also present and don't fade away for a long time.
