Everyday is Christmas, with the almost festive experience that comes from a taste of this particular Bunnhabhain. It is everything in the oven before everyone in the family arrives with presents.
Fluffy fruit cake with deep runny brandy, nutty bread, and a good coal smoke round off the nose.
On the palate, the 16 Manzanilla shines even more intensely. Dark, unsugared chocolate take a turn for fresh herbs and dried nuts. The feel is light for such a deeply flavoured whisky. And the sweetness is mellow, barely noticeable.
The finish is moderate but satisfying, with more of the fruit notes and some woodiness.
Snow, fireside and a big comfortable leather sofa are not included in the package.
