Bunnahabhain 35yo #9521 Bottling Note

A very luxurious Bunnahabhain, which after being distilled all the way back in 1979 was aged for 35 years in one single sherry butt. After these long years, it was bottled at 47.9% ABV by La Maison du Whisky for the Artist #8 Sherry series. Only 472 bottles were released each one featuring the work of Japanese painter Takehiko Sugawara on the label.

Tasting Note by The Producer

Nose: Voluptuous, concentrated. Irresistible notes of emery cloth, iodine tincture, heady florals (purple lilac, geranium), cocoa beans and leather bring lots of body and depth to the initial nose. Allowed to breathe, it becomes more fruity (orange, fig, apricot), spicy (cinnamon, grated ginger) and exotic (passion fruit, mango). Balsamic, it lingers with eucalyptus, cardamom and even basil.

Palate: Unctuous, smooth. A real sweet treat, the attack wavers between purple violets, dark chocolate, liquorice and dried fruit (dates, walnut). With lots of freshness, the mid-palate is fruity (black grape), liquorice (stick) and honeyed (lime blossom). These tones just precede bourbon vanilla, ripe banana and clove.

Finish: Long, silky. The finish keeps intact each flavour revealed on the palate. Then, it gradually quenches its thirst for the exotic (passion fruit, mango, guava). On the retronasal olfaction, milky coffee, crushed strawberry, blueberry and ginger flood the palate. The empty glass is resinous (pine, Vosges bonbons) and empyreumatic (eucalyptus).
