Berry Brothers & Rudd is a well-known bottler from London, founded in 1698 (What? Yep!), that has been active in whisky bottling for a couple of decades now. In 1923 they launched the famous Cutty Sark blend. But today we will try a very young Bunna, bottled for WIN – Whisky Import Netherlands. I got the sample at the whisky festival in Ghent. Sister cask #800098 was also bottled.

The nose is very salty on smoke mackerel, seaweeds and all kinds of herbs. Aspic! Even some tobacco and loads of earth. Only after a full five minutes some sweetness emerges in the shape of pears, hazelnuts and white chocolate. That seems to be at odds and it is. Quite so.

It is soft and oily and mildly spicy (pepper), but soon turns quite smoky. On the palate, it is a lot sweeter than on the nose. Much better. Next to pears, I also get some citrus. The salt kicks in midpalate turning it into quite the brackish Bunna.

The finish is salty, smoky, but mostly very dry.

Nah, a bit too much salt and too dry, so probably bottled at too young an age. Around 60 EUR.
