Tasting note

  • Appearance : vieil or soutenu légèrement ambré.
  • Nose : intense, complexe. Sans l’air d’y toucher, un fin parfum de fumée enrobe chaque note de la palette aromatique composée d’agrumes confits (citron, pamplemousse), de plantes aromatiques (sauge, coriandre) et de fleurs blanches (muguet, lilas). Certains évoqueront l’onctuosité d’un vin de muscat. Remarquable de finesse, il évolue vers des fleurs encore plus capiteuses (pivoine, chèvrefeuille).
  • Palate : gourmande, ciselée. L’attaque en bouche oscille entre des notes de paille fauchée, de fruits frais (pomme, poire), de vanille bourbon, de fruits confits (abricot) et de sous-bois (mousse, lichen). Chargée d’embruns et de sel, elle fait preuve de plus en plus d’exotisme (ananas, banane). Des épices dynamisent la fin de bouche cannelle, muscade).
  • Overall : longue, pleine de tendresse. De la réglisse et des racines de gentiane lui procurent une douce amertume. Cendrée, elle se montre en même temps empyreumatique (eucalyptus, cyprée) et automnale (champignon, mousse). Avec beaucoup de fraîcheur, elle devient de plus en plus herbacée et saline. La rétro olfaction est vanillée et le verre vide revient sur la fumée du tout premier nez.
The brand

The brand

Built in 1881 in the midst of the Scottish “whisky boom”, Bunnahabhain is located on the north-east of the Isle of Islay. The stillhouse houses two magnificent pear-shaped stills that produce a heavy spirit that generally has low levels of peat. Owned by the Burn Stewart Distillers group since May 2003, Bunnahabhain recently began releasing extremely peaty and smoky young whiskies through independent bottlers.

Merchant

The Nectar of the Daily Drams range was born from a passion for Scottish single malts shared by two great whisky connoisseurs, Mario Groteklaes and Jan Broekmans (who founded the Belgium company, The Nectar, in 2006). Young and old single malts stand side by side in this range, whether from well-known distilleries or not. Their research and selection work often draws rave reviews on amateur whisky blogs. One to watch out for!
