Coming from Islay, this is one of the odd couple. It's unlike Islay. The New Oak (=Darach Ur) is there but it didn't feel unusually strong for my senses. All in all, this is a good whisky. Especially the nose where you can feel the oak.

Nose: Stingy with a fresh new wood feel. Turns into smooth and nutty. Some toffee and walnuts.

Taste: Creamy caramel with salt and pepper. Nutty coffee.

Finish: Finish is quite long and warming, a bit too spicy for my taste but that's only a very small blemish on the overall goodness.

Balance: A very nice mixture of caramel and spices combined with nuts and oak. Good job by Bunnahabhain.

I am a huge fan of the Bunnahabhain range! One of my favorite bottles is the 18 yo. I've not come across this one yet but I hope I do one day soon...
