2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.39 points

  1. larswehmeier scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Pretty much matches my prey scheme: strong alcohol content, aromatic smoke, a little dirty, sweet and even fruity on the edge.
    • Nose
      The alcohol cools down the nose. Dirty smoke, possibly even a hint of sulfur. Then it becomes fruity. I feel dark grapes. After the first sip sweeter, with caramel and clear nougat.
    • Taste
      Strong start. Overall, quite a "dark" impression. Spicy caramel. A lot of aromatic smoke. Dark fruit notes. Nutty on the palate.
    • Finish
      The taste is rather short, but it warms the throat and the smoke stays sweet.

    Wow the nose is very surprising. Is it peated? Has to be. I have barbecue smoke and honey in the nose. Really reminds me on these dirty 2004 Ledaigs. I would have never guessed on a Bunnahabhain.
    After some seconds in the glass it is more pleasant and more fruity!
    And now the mouth is a complete turnaround as the smoke is gone and it is now much more fruity but also dry. Very nice palate! Of course the alcohol also shows is power and delivers the taste a lot.
    Finish again is smoky and ash reminds in the throat - bacon and barbecue sauce notes and pretty long. For me the highlight of the night as very complex and very dirty - Very well expression of a Bunnahabhain which was not as expected! 89/100
