Wemyss Malts - Bunnahabhain 1990/2016 - East Neuk Dunes

This just released expression from Wemyss Malts is bottled exclusively for the Kingsbarns Distillery. It is called East Neuk Dunes, referring to the coastline just outside of the distillery in Fife.

Distilled in 1990 at the Bunnahabhain Distillery, matured in a hogshead, producing 267 bottles of single cask whisky at 46% in 2016 at the age of 25.

The nose carriers notes of soft salty vanilla sweetness, soft spices, gooseberries, seashells and fudge. Red apples, candied apples, hint of fruit blossom and lemon.

On the palate there is a load of thick fruit sweetness, almost a maple syrup feeling on a stack of pancakes. Tarte tatin, spices, mocha, creme brulee, red fruits and ripe red apples. A soft medium length finish with hints of powdered sugar, ginger cookies, almonds, marzipan and tum tums. Scoring me an good 7,5 out of 10.
