Tasting notes
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: A rich, moist Dundee cake. Toasted nuts. Salty. Sea breezes.
Palate: Malted milk. Chocolate. Nonetheless avoids being cloying. Deftly balanced.
Finish: Dark cocoa powder.
Comment: A brilliantly sunny winter's day; a walk by the sea in late afternoon; a dram at dusk. Still Bunnahabhain, but so different.
8.5
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Rich, delicate. Bouquet of granny's wardrobe. Gingerbread, orange peel. Dried roses. Prunes. exotic wood. Old furniture.
Palate: Creamy, sweet. Wood apparent with liquorice and eucalyptus notes. Hint of resin.
Finish: Nice orangey aftertaste. Slight bitterness in final notes. Shorter than the nose suggests.
Comment: A truly distinguished acquaintance.
