Tasting Notes for Bunnahabhain 2012 Oloroso Hogshead 57.2%
NOSE - Ginger-nut biscuits, chocolate, chocolate orange, butter, worn leather, spicy ginger, wild garlic, coffee bean
PALATE - Oily, toffee popcorn, orange, gutyric acid – a bit 'Bruichladdich-y'! Baclava – pistachio, sweet and nutty. With a light taste on the tongue, this dram is not aggressive – warm water running over you, not a power shower, just soaking. Strawberry smoothie at the end
FINISH - Wood burning on a fire, but not smoky, leather, toast on an open fire. This dram seems to go from sweet to sharp to dry. The liquorice is still there
