A real charmer, with juicy exotic fruit flavours and subtle, multi-layered peat and cereal depths. Delicious and very good value. This has been a smash hit - check out our customer reviews.

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Martine Nouet

    Nose:  Fragrant. Lemon juice and pulp. Gooseberry. A hint of verbena herbal tea.

    Palate:  Sweet at first then getting bitter. Strange hoppy taste, like a beer. Peppermint.

    Finish:  Dry, spicy, sherbety.

    Comment:  A summer dram. Quite thirst quenching with its bitter profile.

  • Tasting Notes by Dave Broom

    Nose:  Slightly plain, yet fragrant with wet green grass, anise, marzipan. Lightly dusty. Sweeter with water.

    Palate:  Very sweet again. The anise note returns along with meadow sweet. Firm but charming.

    Finish:  Clean and soft.

    Comment:  A welcome addition.

  • Tasting Notes by TF

    Nose:  Exotic fruit, peach, pear esters, suggestion of pineapple.  Perfumed, floral, almost varnishy.  Develops vanilla and dusty cedarwood.

    Palate: Burst of fruit, esp pineapple.  The peat is sweet and subtle, melding perfectly with the fruit.  Late oak arrival, quite sappy oak for a malt so old.  Remarkably fresh.

    Finish:  Warming and sweet, with the peat just winning. Still fruity, but becoming more appley. Lovely toasted cereal notes cropping up in little mini-surges.

    Comment: Surprising in many ways.  Delicious and seriously more-ish.

    Nose- Straight away when you put it to your nose you know it's a Bunny. It has the Edinburgh Rock / Confectioners Sugar nose along with a lovely freshness of green fruits. Taste- Slightly sweet on the palate , bags of my Favourite Edinburgh Rock (sorry to keep going on about it!), A touch of honeyed malt as well. Finish- a lovely long sweet finish, really light. An Amazing dram, So good I bought 3 and named it my Favourite I.B. of the year !!

    The greatest whisky I have tasted so far. Subtle, complex flavours. Mild, but not at all watery. Phenomenal finish, warming and smooth, with a touch of peat.A fabulous drink.
