This is a 26 year Bunnahabhain that was matured in a refill butt before being bottled at 55.6% ABV.
Nose: Sherry comes through cleanly but with a mild profile – ripe bananas, subtle raisin with some wet clay, tobacco, and musty books.
Palate: Sherry much richer here with spiced apples, toffee, rooibos tea, chocolate with some spicy peppers incorporated.
Finish: Bitter cocoa, banana chips, spiced oak, sherry influence strikes me more as a tawny port here.
Rating: 89/100 – A very nice older Bunnahabhain with an interesting sherry profile.
Value for the money: Guessing this retailed originally for $150-$175 or so, and I’d gladly pay that for a bottle.
