What I say
Sampled during the Lady of the Glen 1st Outurn tasting 2020 held at Young Spirits, Edinburgh with Gregor Hannah.
My tasting notes:
- Appearance: Toffee brown (16/20)
- Nose: Rich, toffee, fig, orange oil and peel, perhaps a hint of sulphur/rubber
- Taste: Full-bodied, rich and sweet with plenty of spices, figs, dates, rich barley malt, orange peel some candied, ginger in dark chocolate, nutty walnut and brazil nuts.
- Finish: Long, sweet, nutty and spiced.
A delicious sherry-matured Bunnahabhain the retains an orange oil zestiness from youth but with plenty of well-developed sherry influences too.
Don’t take my word for it:
