Review #110 | /r/Scotch Review #42 -Signatory Vintage Bunnahabhain 2005 10yr
The Schtick: This is a 10 year IB from Bunnahabhain that is bottled at cask strength and matured full term in a first fill sherry butt.
Aged: 10 Years
Maturation: 1st Fill Sherry Butt
Cask #: 579
Bottle #: 281 of 546
Nose: Sweet sherry and the maritime air. Molasses, Turkish delight and figs. Grapes, raisins, dates and moderate peat.
Taste: Sweet sherry, fruity and nutty with lots of salted toffee.
Finish: Long and deeply complex. Everything from the nose and palate carry into the finish and just stick around.
Overall: I’m beyond impressed and this is an easy favorite for me from the three. There’s just so much going on in this dram. I’d buy again in a heartbeat.
