Bunnahabhain 35 yo, 1973 - 2008, The Whisky Agency


Nose: Decent smell of rum raisins (smellin the influence of the Sherry), hints of gun powder, some honey.. it takes some time to develop in the glass... and you should give it this time... the smell is very complex and the aromas seem to be melded together and hard to crack... every time you smell at it you get a new impression.

Taste: Wow. It´s directly there... no compromises... Sherry, oak wood... and exotical spices... those are the first things hittin my taste buds. The dried fruits are in the foreground, added by ripe apples and a mixture of orange and ginger, hints of lemon... there´s some kinda "dirty taste" in the background, hard to define what it is....

Aftertaste: Very, very long aftertaste in the mouth... dominated by dried fruits and the spices... The maturation in the Sherry cask definetly left a mark on this 35 yo liquid gold...

The guys from "The Whisky Agency" took an excellent cask, and I´m happy that beside that bottle, which I split with some friends, I still have a full bottle left...
