Michael Jackson

Nose
Cashew nuts.
Palate
Gunpowder tea. Ginseng.
Finish
Just enough bitterness to be appetising. Salty.
Comment
The Islay origins become more obvious the more mature Bunnahabhain is. This one would be comfortable in distant Cathay or in Tokyo or even 42nd Street.

Dave Broom

Nose
Colour suggests real age, as does the initially muted nose but in time there's crystallised ginger, raisin, mushroom, peach, fondant icing and hint of peat.
Palate
Very gentle but still sweetly fruity and spicy and a crackle of energy in the middle.
Finish
Light peat. Fades away gently.
Comment
Another cracker from the vaults. Burn Stewart must be rubbing their hands with glee.
