Bunnahabhain 11 Years (Boutique-y Whisky)

This Bunnahabhain 11 Year Old was recently bottled by That Boutique-y Whisky Company. It is unpeated and from its profile I would guess it relies heavily on spirit from refill sherry casks (no official confirmation though).

Nose: orchard fruits (apple peels, pears) with a nice buttery side as well as hints of damp chalk and hay. A sea breeze. Some leafy notes and winter spice. Marzipan. Bread crust. Rather complex.

Mouth: quite a dry profile and fairly coastal, with clear salty notes. There are damp earthy notes again with a lot of oak char. Yellow apples are back. Ginger, nutmeg and salty notes. Roasted nuts. Moss and tobacco.

Finish: medium long, with warming spicy notes.

A really nice Bunna. autumnal in a way with subtle dry sherry notes and different earthy / coastal touches. Above average complexity as well. Available from Master of Malt.

Score: 87/100
