This is an independent bottling of spirit distilled at Bunnahabhain and bottled by Blackadder. Bottled at cask strength, with no coloring or filtering after maturation in a sherry cask, this has the potential to be a real treat.
Rich, nutty, loaded with stewed fruits. Praline, amaretto, jammy blackberry and nutty caramel.
Thick, rich mouth feel. A bit warm, but heat in check. Sweet caramel, toffee, rich blackberry and fig. Pepper, faint sulfur. Currant, raspberry, rich graham cracker and praline. Decadent. Amazing.
Long, and sweet. Loaded with complexity. Musty pipe tobacco. Figs, dates, raisins. Black currant, blackberry. Nougat, creme brûlée. Raspberry and rich cocoa.
Long, powerful and complex. So much going on, with powerful components that I love. The creamy sweetness, paired with dessert nut notes and stewed fruits is a combination of fruit, sherry, savory and nutty that I haven’t seen in some time. It’s phenomenal, and I’d buy many more of these.
