The first bottling of this batch of Bunna at 46% was rapturously received. This one is very similar and possibly even better. Medium-bodied with a beautiful delicacy and honeyed floral notes.

Tasting Notes

  • 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 ;)!
