The Schtick: This is an independent bottling of spirit distilled at Bunnahabhain and bottled by Adelphi. It was bottled after 11 years of aging at cask strength without coloring or filtering. 

Distiller: Bunnahabhain

Bottler: Adelphi

Selection: N/A

ABV: 56.5% ABV

Age: 11 

Nose: Really potent peat. Honey, strawberries, waffle cone, juicy currant and figs. 

Taste: Sweet honey, vanilla, rich ripe fruits. Cherry, blackberry, currant, fig. Light smoke, some ash and minerality. Light iodine. 

Finish: Sweet and smoky. Ash, honey, caramel, cherries, burning wood, light brine. 

Overall: Intensely peaty and loaded with juicy fruits makes this a fun dram for me. I really enjoyed the balance and the complexity. 

Thanks for reading!
