The MacPhail's Collection - 1997 Bunnahabhain

Citrus, honey, pistache, fruit

Lemon, nuts, creamy, raisins, vanilla, caramel, fruit

Seaweed/salty on the finish, short after tones with nuts and caramel

6, due to the strongly present citrus tones, this gave a bitter begin tone. There is a lot of beautiful tones in this one, but the citrus was just to strong. I let it sit for quite some time, but still this was too strong.

Tasting scores explained a bit. It all depends on the moment, ambiance etc, but to have a guideline for my own preferences. This differs for each person. See my wish list in the menu above to see what I prefer the most at the moment. A low score will not meen I will maybe give it a second chance on a later time, but for now it is not for me...

1-5   Mhmm... Not liking this one...
5-6   Don't have to wake me up for this, not bad, but not my preference
6-7   I like, but they just miss something, to make me wanna buy a whole bottle
7-8   Well, you can start waking me up for these, more depth, these I would love to add to my collection
8-9   These are to be enjoyed slowly. These I absolutely would love to have a bottle, but sadly not always in my price range. 
9-10 Well, what can I say, just wow...... No words to describe it. Wake me up now!!
