Nose
Lots of sherry. Ginger marmalade and toast.
Palate
More of the same, but the grassy, briny, distillery character emerges later.
Finish
Salty and appetising.
Comment
A breakfast whisky for the truly decadent.

Jim Murray

75
Nose
An attractive mix of fresh cherries, sweet, over-ripe grapes and much earthier, drier malt.
Palate
Clean, intense malty start which continues. Fruitiness arrives towards the middle with toasty oak.
Finish
A dry finish with that massive malt still pursuing its relentless course.
Comment
One of the most enjoyable Bunnas I've tasted though missing that breathtaking freshness.
