Single Malt Scotch Whisky distilled at Bunnahabhain in 2002 and matured exclusively in a Bourbon Hogshead for 16 years.
Only 258 70CL bottles worldwide. Bottled at 51%ABV.
Nose: Sweet at first with lots of vanilla and clear honey aromas. Floral tones of honeysuckle appear once the whisky has breathed for a while, as do notes of sponge cake with apricot jam and icing sugar. Little nose prickle makes this whisky very easy on the nose.
Palate: The palate mirrors the nose with lots of sponge cake and apricot jam, vanilla, fudge and a little coconut. The floral notes are more subtle and the honey flavours more complex, moving from clear to crystalline across the palate. A touch of water creates a creamier mouthfeel.
Finish: The finish is juicy and sweet with hints of soft oak all the way to the end.
