This is a 10yr aged independently bottled of Bunnahabhain spirit by Signatory Vintage. Matured for 10 years in a sherry cask after being distilled in 2005, this was bottled at cask strength with no coloring or filtering. I've reviewed this before, and was a big fan. It's fun to revisit roughly 1000 reviews later. Let's dive in.
Powerful cocoa, anise, honey, toffee. Syrupy fruits. Fig, black currant, stewed fruits. Sweet, with a touch of pepper.
Sweet, syrupy and rich. Plums, dates, black currant. Blackberry, blueberry. Rich, decadent sherry. The mouth feel is impressive, and the heat is very much in check.
Long, continues the decadence. Powerful cocoa, sherry, toffee and creme brule. Pepper to balance, with nice oak structure - especially given the age.
Beyond impressive, especially for 10 years old. I was too restrained when I rated this before, over 1000 reviews ago. It climbs higher. I don't think my previous rating was wrong, but this continues to impress, especially given the current state of sherry bombs.
