Bunnahabhain 1990 (Liquid Treasures)
Tasting notes by Ruben Luyten - Posted in Bunnahabhain
The fourth batch of Liquid Treasures was nicknamed “Ocean residents”. This Bunnahabhain 1990 features a clownfish on the label.
Bunnahabhain 22 yo 1990 (49,2%, Liquid Treasures 2012, sherry hogshead)
Nose: big sherry, a classic mix of raisins, figs and chocolate. Also fruity hints of raspberry / strawberry jam. A hint of smoked ham without the traces of sulphur that sherried Bunna can sometimes show. A few herbal overtones and hay. Leather. First fill sherry well executed. Mouth: again big sherry, lots of chocolate notes, raspberry ganache, Christmas cake and prunes. Cinnamon and soft pepper. Sultanas. A classic profile. Finish: more of the same, which is not bad news.
