Tasting Notes by TF
Nose: Light, and attractive, with fresh green apple, citrus zest and some exotic fruit. Develops floral and heather aromas, some mild clove, cinnamon and vanilla, honey, Murray mints and castor sugar.
Palate: Delicate and elegant mouth arrival, with the apple from the nose evolving to apple pie. Medium-bodied, with the exotic fruit (pineapple syrup) and the other elements from the nose all present.
Finish: Medium-length and perfectly-balanced with a faint trace of woodsmoke on the finish.
Comment: Obviously I'm biased, but the previous release of this was my favourite of our bottlings from last year, and I think I might actually prefer this. An incredibly elegant Bunna, gentle, fruity and very very more-ish. I could drink this all day.

Arrived yesterday, and had the time to sit down and give it the attention it deserves. I like the peaty and smoky whisky's a lot, but this is a refreshing alternative. And to think it was distilled on the same island as Ardbeg and Lagavulin. Cracking drink, and the notes are spot on.
Look, can you all please stop telling everyone how good this is, it'll run out too soon if you keep going on about it ;)!
Thanks for the kind comments, Gordon - glad you like the new release as much as I do.
Once again the man has come up trumps !I totally agree with TF's comments , the 27yo was stunning and i think this could be better on first tasting , this reminds me very much of older Bunnies tried in the warehouses , a Very , Very Elegant Bunnahabhain !!!Send me more please.....
