Adding some older reviews - original review date was June 7, 2018. Bought myself a sample because I like Bunnahabhain. I'm not very familiar with Claxton's, but I know they use large square bottles!

0.2 (Pale staw)

Nose

Lots of dark fruits. Second sniff reveals a layer of sweetness. Honey. Also a bit of citrus. No peat.

Palate

Surprisingly light mouthfeel. I did expect a bit more oilyness given the nose and the fact that it’s a Bunnahabhain. It hides its strength very well.

Finish

Wood spice and a round, winey kind of taste. Strawberry jam and perhaps a tad licorice. Very sweet, brown sugar finish. Medium length.

Nose reminds me of an Old Pulteney, with that sweet, citrus and honey profile. The finish reveals a completely different set of tastes. Quite a sharp turn! It makes it an interesting dram but not really up my alley. Perhaps a bit too sprawling, but a sure hit if you like sweet dark fruits.
