Gordon & Macphail Discovery Bunnahabhain 11 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)
$130. 00 Bottle
The consensus is that indies reign supreme when it comes to recent Bunnahabhain bottlings. This one's from an ex-Sherry cask, so expect some fruit cake notes through Bunnah's typically superlative distillate. Other reviews... Nose: nice! A rather easy, syrupy fruitiness. Lots of golden syrup, polenta cake, bracken, damp forest, salted caramel, peanut brittle. A little orange pith. Fairly classical and very approachable and easy. Mouth: ginger bread, blood orange, crispy bacon, various salted nuts, trail mix, cooked cereals, slightly mashy and sweet. Simple but easy and quaffable. Finish: medium, all on glazed fruits, nuts, slightly saline, again pretty textbook Bunna. Comments: I like that they cleaved close to the distillery style. The sherry is present but nicely balanced. A good, solid introduction whisky that fits the ethos of its series pretty well I’d say. 82 points - whiskyfun.com Notes from G&M.... Aroma: Sherry aromas mingle with orange marmalade, dried fruit notes develop; subtle spices weave through creamy vanilla toffee. Taste: Deliciously smooth and creamy; a gentle warming cinnamon spice matures into flavours of chewy dates and stewed plums with walnut undertones. Finish: Smooth milk chocolate with lingering dried fruit and hints of nuts.
