Tasting notes
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Lots of sherry. Ginger marmalade and toast.
Palate: More of the same, but the grassy, briny, distillery character emerges later.
Finish: Salty and appetising.
Comment: A breakfast whisky for the truly decadent.
8.0
Taster   Jim Murray
Nose: An attractive mix of fresh cherries, sweet, over-ripe grapes and much earthier, drier malt.
Palate: Clean, intense malty start which continues. Fruitiness arrives towards the middle with toasty oak.
Finish: A dry finish with that massive malt still pursuing its relentless course.
Comment: One of the most enjoyable Bunnas I've tasted though missing that breathtaking freshness.
7.5
