Nose.

Big and brash. Toffee. Honeycomb. Chocolate. Intense Oak smoked BBQ with lots of wood char. Chrunchie bars burnt in a wood fire. Some salty sea air in the far background.

Palate.

Thick and rich sweet honey. Lots of Chocolate. A little charred oak. Luxurious mouthfeel. Some alcohol nip, and a little chilli heat with the chocolate. The further development comes in a salty ocean wave.

Finish.

Smokey chocolate honeycomb sticks around, with a touch of saltiness to the caramel and chocolate.

Adding Water.

Takes a good slug of water. Everything is thicker on the nose, with more chocolate. The palate is really thick stuff. Tasty. Chewy. Oily and awesome. The finish now has more peat. Lots of lovely lush oils, making the whole experience very smooth and long lasting. Adding more water gives more smoke and introduces some dry fruits into the palate.

Conclusion.

I really enjoyed this dram. Didn’t get a chance to get a full bottle, feel it is slightly overpriced for the age which is what put me off, but if your a Bunna fan, and fancy something very deep and fulfilling then this is great stuff.
