Whisky Reviews for Bunnahabhain 2009

5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.50 points

  1. WhiskyLovingPianist scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur


    This saw full maturation in one Spanish (Rioja) red wine cask. A true single cask!

    N: Dry sherry and hessian tones with sweet bourbon underlying. I find this winey malty yeasty sweetness equally intriguing & pleasing.
    T: The nose runs through true on the palate.
    F: Dry-but-not-drying herbal action within the context of a constant sweet chew and long finish thereafter.
    C: If red wine casks and barley spirit are to work together with regularity, and if become jaded with STR, this kind of resulting style could lead the way.

  2. gallfux did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    I do not really like it. Acts even young and the sweetness and fruit looks artificial. That's not for me.

    • Nose
      Warm, toasted malt, redcurrant, slightly creamy notes, raspberry cabbage, a hint of salt, soaked biscuit, mascarpone, orange liqueur and overall very dessert-like. With water: fresh, saltier, again sour red berries, pomegranates, barberries, blood oranges and mascarpone.
    • Taste
      Fresh, salty, oak, sour red berries like cranberries and barberries, warm loess, sweet malty and a hint of bacon. With water: again salty, biscuit-like maltiness, red currant, and ripe raspberries and loess.
    • Finish
      Short to medium, malt, raspberries and a thick dollop of cream.
