  • Intro:

    This is an independent bottling of spirit distilled at Bunnahabhain, bottled by SMWS after 11 years of aging in an ex-bourbon barrel. This bottling, "Pork Scratching Eau de Vie" is bottled at cask strength, with no coloring or filtering. Let's see how it is.

  • Nose:

    Sweet, waxy fruits. Nutty, almond forward. Waxy Dole fruit syrup - peaches and pears. Really interesting. Sweet. Maybe some faint minerality. No big hit of ethanol.

  • Taste:

    Thin to medium in mouth feel but the heat is really well behaved for the proof. Sweet creme brulee, cherries, toffee and light sulfur. Fresh baked bread and brine.

  • Finish:

    Long, a bit hotter here. Mineral forward, lots of ash, fresh baked bread, honey and amaretto.

  • Overall:

    Really interesting dram, showing off a lot of stuff we don't typically see in a Bunna.

  • Score:

    6
