Here is what the distillery says about the Bunnahabhain Moine Marsala Finish:
"Beginning its maturation in whisky refill, the Mòine Marsala was transferred to Marsala Wine Casks for a further 4 years – the rich, sweet dessert wine from Sicily."
Nose: Quite smoky this. Rich, fruity and big wood smoke. A touch of saltiness. Vanilla and hints of well-turned soil and damp leaves.
Taste: Rich and full-bodied. Fiery hot coals made from fruity hard candy. Vanilla and icing sugar. White chocolate rolled in peppery ashes. Ginger and cinnamon.
Finish: Medium long finish. It warms me to my core. Continues much as it started, thankfully. Lovely spices and sweetness, with big smokiness.
Comments: Great dram!
