This Limited Release from Bunnahabhain was distilled on the 24th March 2003 and bottled on 21st June 2017, making it a 14 year old. It matured on 2nd fill sherry casks and was then finished for 3 (!) years on PX casks. That explains the beautiful, bronze color.

Nose carefully, because the first whiff is full of alcohol. Then I get some lovely maritime notes with delicious candied fruit. Think blood oranges, peach, apricot, prunes, raisins and a truckload of fresh figs. Some nuts kick in, pecan and hazel to the fore. Some cooked ham as well, sniffing tobacco and milk chocolate. Dying wood, too. What a beautiful, complex nose!

The arrival is sturdy and spicy, but then it turns very sweet immediately. Prunes, apricots and figs again, but in a wonderful marmalade. No trace of the nuts, but all the more sweetness in the guise of crème brûlée and even some cassis. Wonderfully dark and sweet with a touch of tannins and even a salty edge. Complex on the palate as well. Very luring but dangerously quaffable.

The finish is very long, shows a warm smokiness and remains sweet until the death.

Lovely dark and sweet Bunna. Around 100 EUR. Recommended! Thanks, Marcel.
