Whisky Reviews for Bunnahabhain 2004 SV

15 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.19 points

  1. Lorion scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    This is a board - with everything I like. Unfortunately, the alcohol is a bit too stormy and water is not good. That gives point deduction. The finish is phenomenal. 87 points.
    • Nose
      Nutty, dry fruit pounding in the nose. Intense sherry rushes forward. Alcohol is also there. Immediately there is some sulfur in the background, just so that you perceive it and that it is a bit more interesting. Prunes with pepper. Blood orange, pastries and some leather. A spice is included, which is difficult to grasp at first. Some soy maybe. I perceive roast aromas. Roasted and already somewhat blackened almonds. Then suddenly it will be unexpectedly sweet - and how. Shortly I have trolli gummy bears in my nose. But they go back quickly. Hand warming lures out first some alcohol, but then it is sweeter again and cherry is added.
      Water: The whisky is a bit tamer. Nut biscuits come through more clearly, a little cinnamon joins.
    • Taste
      Tingling, the mouth is filled. Sherry. Cherry is at the forefront. There are also slightly nutty and spicy hints. Sweetness is there, but severe dryness soon takes over. Plums and orange peel mix with toasted aromas. Spicy oak is fighting through. In the Nachschmecken comes something easily Vergorenes, which I like very much. The bitterness begins.
      Water: Sweeter and a little fresher, but also a little sharper (alcoholic). The 60 +% are better integrated.
    • Finish
      Long, sweet at first, then gradually yielding to increasing bitterness. In the end it is more noble chocolate, 80% + cocoa content. The glass is coming to an end and the bitterness takes over everything. It sticks forever in the mouth.

  2. Tommyknocker scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    After a long time finally again a typical Bunna from the Sherrytonne: banana, port flavor, dry sherry. Memories of the Sgeul Na Mara (Feis Ile 2013 Bottling) awake. Rather no water.
    • Nose
      Pure: again very different than the Glenlivet. Again, a sherry board, but this time with a buttery, creamy note. Black Forest Cherry Cake could be said. Amaretto. And after a long search under zig bottlings finally again the slightly dirty, Bunnatypische banana note. Where have you been so long? This brackish water to diesel tanker as it should be. With water: herbs, dark orange come out.
    • Taste
      Pure: how cool, here again the bunna sherry character, slightly nutty, buttery, overripe banana and some fish net here. That's the way it has to be. With water it becomes drier, nuttier, better without.
    • Finish
      long, dry, slightly dirty.

  3. dRambo scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    For me this is a nice wine punch - young - sherry dominated with a nice nose - but dull on the palate, unbalanced and sorry but imho completely overrated - modern coarse palate - a dram is enough
    • Nose
      without water - flat, dry, restrained, sea air, subtle red fruits, celery, teriyaki sauce, lovage, With a few drops of water, it opens up more, subtly alcoholic, Bunna herbs, some tobacco, creamy buttery rather subtle and restrained, earthy, dried cherries, eucalyptus, with a lot of patience - dried flowers and orange oil
    • Taste
      sweet and red fruit - slightly dry it runs over the tongue, mint, fruity tart tingle with Black Forest cherries cake - dynamic wine notes in motion - there is also an immature fermentation note as of Federweisser, oak, the longer I chew it - the drier he becomes, Chocolate, tree bark, birch sap, salt,
    • Finish
      Oak, spice, malt, toasted cereals - increasing bitterness - extremely astringent, grape seeds, tree bark, walnut shell

  7. Corso_theRed scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Very pleasant to drink. The nose is a touch too austere for my taste, but the palace shines brightly IMHO. Good complexity, sweetness and no bitterness whatsoever.
    • Nose
      A bit austere at first. This will need air and water, which opens up some ripe mango and peaches, wet clay, as well as pineapple juice. After a while longer, it’s attic-ey side merges – dry saw dust and cardboard boxes. A touch of ozone and more and more nuts are discernible now. Roasted hazelnuts and almonds, bordering on marzipan.
    • Taste
      Sweetness, akin to cake dough. Whipped cream with caramel, Crème Brulee, and crushed Wether’s Originals. Some savory components arise, with a touch of sulfur, teriyaki sauce, and burned caramel. Behind all this its immensely sherried – prunes, raisins, and dates.
    • Finish
      Medium-long. Mildly tannic, lots of caramel, perhaps some honeyed croissants. 

  8. Sleinn nam Ffoh scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    For lovers of intense, dark sherry flavors a must. The character of Bunnahabhain is easily recognizable, even if the sherry is really intense. Without water in small sips maybe even better than with water.
    • Nose
      First, intense tobacco and coffee notes reach the nose, then add full sherry aromas with figs, plums and dark cherries. In the background are violets and slightly sour tiger flavors and hazelnuts.
    • Taste
      Extremely dark sherry in full range, tobacco, espresso and wonderful dark fruit compote. Slightly maritime, leathery and minimal rubber impact.
    • Finish
      Sweet figs, dates and oak fill the entire mouth, relax first and then return to full intensity. Long and very pleasant.

  9. nhuber scored this whisky 86 points Expert Junior

    #6 of local dealer Tasting. First fill Sherry butt, fruity nose But almost no smoke... Very fruity in the mouth, almost dominated by the Sherry in the mouth, very little Distillery character left... Takes water very well, nice but also nothing exciting. Had better Bunnahabhain especially considering the price (90€)... Stick to Standard bottling Bunnahabhain 12. 

  10. Harzermaltine scored this whisky 45 points Member Senior

    The alcohol tingles a bit in the nose, heavy dry fruits dominate in the glass, roasted and freshly ground walnuts. Then there is something that irritates me. freshly tanned leather, but still a heavy sweetness - as in a winter groats with plums, a hint of cinnamon, sour cherries, apricots, figs, Jockelbeeren - all reduced dick. And what really bothers me is the note of the dark drinking chocolate. Delicious. The malt fills the mouth immediately - a tingling is spreading. And the most amazing thing is that Sweet Cherry is about to spread - liquid dark chocolate has gone over it. The nut was probably a moment too long in the pan, bitter substances are recognizable. The alcohol is involved, almost soft again. In addition to the incredible fruity, thickly reduced cherry comes dried plum. then a little overgrown bunch of grapes flashes through. And with the reduced cherries came a chili was cooked. Boah - a Bunna to my taste.
