Bunnahabhain / Wemyss Malts

Wemyss Malts Chocolate Honeycomb Review

Wemyss Chocolate Honeycomb Part of the Spring Summer 2013 Single cask Selection from Wemyss Malts.

Bunnahabhain is probably my favourite Islay, i love peated whisky but the smooth chocolate and sherry of the standard Bunnahabhains really work for me and i always have some Bunnahabhain in the house. This single cask is fantastic and i will be hunting down a bottle of it, this whisky really does live up to the Chocolate Honeycomb name.

Thank you again to Wemyss Malts for the samples.

Tasting Notes & Details

Nose

Wow, there's definitely chocolate here, not the bitterness of proper 70% cocoa chocolate but more like the velvety smoothness of a Galaxy chocolate bar, touch of fruit in there also some definite orange peel and vanilla covered raisins.

Palate

honey sweetness and spicy orange peel with a touch of puff candy, milk chocolate and raisins

Finish

milk chocolate orange.
