This is just weird. A 17 yo Bunnahabhain from SMWS, but it's got some kind of odd (to me, at least) flavor to it that I just can't put my finger on. It's got some sherry, but then there's something else, something really potent and palate dominating -- and this may be the Bovril or Maggi that the label's talking about, although it says that's related to the smell, and let's be honest here, most often these descriptions are a whimsical exegesis of pure BS -- and the closest comparison I can think of is Moutai, which I didn't enjoy (pretty sure I never finished the bottle).
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Maggi is basically soy sauce. Some may desire that in a whisky but not me, and definitely not in the summer. Maybe a cold winter night.
