Bn6 Elements of Islay (distilled at Bunnahabhain), 56.9%

Price: $84 Issue: Fall 2014 Reviewer: Dave Broom

Very chewy. Think of melting Mars bars, with a touch of coconut cream, then red-fruit acidity, red cherry, and lemon. All very forward and sweet, but with no alcohol when neat, showing an active cask. Dilute, there's coconut, pea shoots, and banoffie pie. The palate is thick with Jaffa cake (orange and chocolate), then nutty granola. It doesn't take water too well. Quite fat.£50/500 ml
