First Impression: Samaroli Bunnahabhain Infinity 1974 – 2014

[43.6%・40 Years Old・Distilled in 1974・Bottled in 2014・Samaroli Bottling・Cask No: 604]

Nose:

Breath of sea breeze, there is a hint of burnt rubber in the air which eventually settles into a delicate stone fruit note.  The wild flowers shy away as the more assertive malt comes in.  A whisper of banana toffee and gentle woodiness in the background.

Palate & Finish:

Soft and velvety, tropical juiciness and cotton candy intertwines though the oak does set in and it distorts the sweetness ever so slightly.

The wild floral vibe continues with a background supported by the malt.

Thoughts:

A well aged whisky that’s more on the playful side.
