Another treat from the indie bottlers Claxton’s. This is a 14 year old single cask Bunnahabhain. Cask No: 1607-3185. It was distilled in October 2002 and bottled in 2016.
Bottled at 51.6 % ABV.
Nose: Marzipan, buttery shortbread, sweet nectarines, a hint of wood. Lemon zest as it develops. A little lavender maybe as well.
Palate: Oily and oaky with a little pepper. Lots of malted grain. Quite nutty. There’s an undertone of citrus just playing with the sides of the tongue.
Finish: Quite short and drying.
