Bunnahabhain 15yr Heavily Peated (Signatory
I've had this dram sitting in my to do list for probably two years after it was sent to me by my friend Matt Veira (@mattveira) from the Guildford Whisky Blog and thought it was time to get it done.
I've had a few peated Bunnahabhains in the past and so looking forward to trying this one at last.
Tasty stuff, lovely light peat smoke which suits me perfectly then fruity notes on the nose which entice and on the palate they're there enough to keep my interest.
A very nice dram which is long gone, but keep an eye out for others from signatory if you like the sound of this.
Thanks again to Matt (@mattveira) for the sample
It's peated but it's not hugely smoky for me, it's like a salty fish supper made from smoked haddock and covered in lemon juice, there's a juicy fruit chewing gum note there also coming through, with a very slight prickle of acetone
The smoke grows here, becoming sweeter though, more of the smoked seafood and salty notes and then fruity undertones of tinned fruits but without the syrup
Light but grows and becomes slightly prickly
