Words OF whisky
Nose: Spicy and sweet with touches of cocoa and oak shavings, as well as cracked black pepper corns and some banana peel. A minor note of sulphur, but also cherry syrup and cherry pits. Finally some red apple skin.
Taste: Subtle winey fruitiness and the syrupy mouthfeel to match it, then also white pepper, nutmeg, blackberries and toasted brown bread. Just a touch of sulphur in the background.
Finish: Lingering sweetness and spiciness. Basically more of the above.
A Bunnahabhain that actually co-exists fairly well with the Manzanilla influence, which is mainly recognizable by the syrupy, sweet fruitiness. I’m not entirely convinced though.
