Tasting notes
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Cashew nuts.
Palate: Gunpowder tea. Ginseng.
Finish: Just enough bitterness to be appetising. Salty.
Comment: The Islay origins become more obvious the more mature Bunnahabhain is. This one would be comfortable in distant Cathay or in Tokyo or even 42nd Street.
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Colour suggests real age, as does the initially muted nose but in time there's crystallised ginger, raisin, mushroom, peach, fondant icing and hint of peat.
Palate: Very gentle but still sweetly fruity and spicy and a crackle of energy in the middle.
Finish: Light peat. Fades away gently.
Comment: Another cracker from the vaults. Burn Stewart must be rubbing their hands with glee.
