Westering home and a song in the air... What a craft presentation of an unpeated Islay Single Malt with a lovely natural color in the glass! The nose is elegant and amazingly complex with Mon Chéri confectionery, old leather and mild spices. Rich nut aromas, orange peel and raisins disguise distant hints of sea air. Intensely aromatic and yet well-balanced in the taste, you get distinct oakiness, stewed tea and dried fruits with honey that lead into a long, warming and peppery bitter finish. Bunnahabhain 18 is a high class all-rounder - even without peat!

Finish: salted creamy toffee, cherry and fresh good quality oak.

Comment: This is delicious. Quite pricy but you can really tell it was aged in a good quality barrels. Complex, well rounded, creamy. When you add water it changes, more nuts and spices are going through. I like it more without water, but still it can hold water very well. When I don't try to focus on each note I feel something really sweety and nice coming out of it which might be a nice warming chocolate and salted caramel but also something else I can't describe. Just amazing scotch.
