In the same style of the previous release, which was as creamy, honeyed and fruity as a single malt can be, this new release of unpeated Bunnahabhain is a treat for whisky lovers with a sweet tooth. Twelve years in fresh oloroso butts have imparted huge character and body to the malt, which is now rich, intense and mouth coating, with a sweetness that would be considered extreme if it weren’t so well balanced by spicy notes of mustard and pepper, and just a touch of winey character. At the nose it has a fragrant profile, rich in aromatic herbs like chamomile and genepy, a trait which is also found in the endless and increasingly peppery aftertaste. A very classically-styled sherry matured malt!
