Nose of wood stain and solvent, with hints of something lemony, airplane glue, and sawdust. Palate is mildly sweet, rather nutmeggy, with something herbal and grassy. Nice oak comes through in the long finish, with the nutmeg still notably here. After this breathes for a little while, coffee appears. I didn't peg this as a Bunnahabhain when I tried it, and it's not typical of those I've tasted -- certainly not the core range and 25. A somewhat typical lots-of-years-on-it spicy bourbon-cask number, though the intensity of flavor takes it out of the "purely typical" category. Likeable enough.

n:  Fresh lumber, lavendar, and licorice

p:  Red oak, Christmas spices minus cinnamon.  Band-aid.  Nice mouthfeel.  Liked it a little, not a lot.  Chewy, odd finish.   B/B- 
Fuji
 
N: buttery with lots of fruit: peach, lemon, grape and apples

P: fruit bomb continues with bitter choclate

F: citrus
