Bunnahabhain 35 yo 1980/2015 (47.1%, Sansibar for Spirit Shop Selection, sherry, 165 bottles).
Colour: deep gold.
Nose: a blend of beeswax, then cigars, Grisons meat, leather, and the expected old walnuts. It’s a traditional dry sherried Bunnahabhain, earthy as well. Whiffs of late-season quinces and medlars.
Mouth: starts a bit brutal and dirtily earthy (which is not that bad), develops with more leather and tobacco (and the usual walnuts), and tends to become bitter-chocolate dry, although a few touches of oranges make it a tad lighter. It’s also rather very peppery.
Finish: rather long, grassier, but also with more fruits.
