A cask strength single malt from the Bunnahabhain distillery, bottled by Islay whisky lovers Elements Of Islay.
This was distilled in 200, aged for 16 years and drawn from two oloroso sherry butts. Bottled at 55.7%.
Bottlers tasting notes:
Nose: A pan of melting milk chocolate buttons with caramel centres. Toasted cinnamon sticks and ground ginger mixed with sultanas and walnuts – the perfect winter cake mix.
Palate: A thick and creamy texture with tones of milk chocolate and glacé cherries. Classic bitter-orange marmalade spread on freshly-toasted granary bread. Mixed spice follows: caraway seeds, cloves and allspice.
Finish: Juicy with red berries, blackcurrant cordial, cinnamon spice and a lingering citrus note akin to candied orange peel.
