Bunnahabhain 12 yo (2002/2014), Signatory, 57,2%

Review #683
From Signatory’s Vintage Cask Strength Collection comes this Sherry butt with the cask number 420. Only 665 bottles were made. All sorts of dried fruits in the smell, with all the sweetness from these in the background. So rich in flavours!

Cooked dried fruits and alcohol in the taste. Oak and tannins coming through as well. The finish have all these dried fruits, but the alcohol dies down and the sweetness from the fruits now have the opportunity to come forward. Nothing dominating, just mixing with the oak and dried fruits.

What a Sherry beast! If you like the mild, fruity, unpeated Bunnahabhain character mixed with a Sherry monster, this is for you! The flavours are so elegant, even though it is a heavily Sherried dram and the whisky only is 12 years old. Very impressive! I will give this 93/100 (23/24/23/23).
