Bunnahabhain 20 Year Old 1990 – Single Cask (Master of Malt)
Nose: Big, rich sherry notes, old wooden board game pieces, raisins, soy and a little smoke.
Palate: Sweet, oily, nutty, hints of marzipan, brine and spice along with smoked bacon.
Finish: Fairly long with smoke and plenty of spice.
Overall: Fascinating and excellent single cask bottling (more than reminiscent of an old Japanese single cask) – as Paul McCartney and Stevie Wonder never said ‘peat and sherry live together in perfect harmony’.
