In what will be seen as a positive move to whisky connoisseurs, Bunnahabhain have decided to bottle the 25 year old without chill-filtration and without colouring. Presented in smoked oak glass bottle and aged label design.
Nose: Sherried; sweet toffee and polished leather followed by cinnamon and the faintest hint of cardamon.
Palate: Fruit compote doused in cream and caster sugar, this develops into roasted malt, chestnuts and stewed raisins.
Finish: Demerara sugar, mixed spice, nutmeg and caramel lingering for long after the final sip.
Overall: Bunnahabhain with twent-five years aging opens up the spirit to a plethora of rich, dark flavours that stay with the drinker long after the glass is finished.
