    Conclusion and pictures on: https://tomtrinkt.de
    • Nose
      Heavy smoke (flaming campfire) and a salty sea breeze take over the command immediately. The aromatic intensity is considerable, I honestly did not expect that in the form. Sweet fruit notes gradually penetrate the initially dominant smoke of the wild Islay malts. Salty caramel, gentle sweet sherry notes, dried orange peel, lemons and blueberries follow. Strong spices (nutmeg & cloves), oak and dried tobacco leaves are mixed with smoke and fruity notes. Pleasantly complex!
    • Taste
      Soft and full-bodied onset. The Bunnahabhain rekindles a blazing bonfire and a fine sea breeze. The Sherrynoten gain in taste in presence and dominance. Overripe apples, orange peel, grapefruit, raisins and sugared wild berries create a sweet and fruity contrast. Christmas spices, salty caramel, dark chocolate, spicy oak and fine tobacco notes complete the harmonious taste. The alcohol content (46.3%) fits very well into the overall picture. I renounce the addition of water.
    • Finish
      Medium to long, smoky-spicy and warm. The Sherrynoten now give way to the more ashen smoke and clear traces of pepper, salt and chocolate. Strong oak notes, Christmas spices and tobacco let the Bunnahabhain slowly fade away. A slight dryness remains on the palate.

    nose:
    dry and gripping peat, a little iodized, lemon, seaweed at high tide, salt arriving, a little fruit on citrus
    mouth:
    the alcohol fire is quite young, then a pleasant sensation of smoke near the fire, a little fruit on the cooked tangerine, a little mold in return, peppery spices, the malt returns a little toasted, seaweed still in a little parched package.
    Final:
    fairly short, smoky, dry wood, fruit a little macerated at last.
    simple, missing a bit of final.

    But hello, he can do something. That's when I thought that was just another of those "okay" bunna no age statements. But no. He has depth and character and gets out back not thin and boring, but holds beautiful long the variety of aromas of the nose and tongue upright. At the price - you really can not complain.
    • Nose
      88 88
      A pleasantly restrained smoky note that draws with a touch of dried apricots, peaches and raisins in the nose. Sherry aromas follow after a while, as do caramel and honey. Spicy wood, a little tree resin and pepper complete the picture.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Cool peat smoke, more intense on the tongue than in the nose. Dry from the beginning. Sherry aromas, some Kellermoder and an impression of damp wood give it depth. Cloves, nutmeg and pepper crowd in. Also a little licorice and menthol resonate. Nougat chocolate, freshly brewed coffee, leather.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Medium long, dry. In the finish he continues to show the flavors of the tongue. Although in a weakened form, but as a whole they are still there. Anything but one-dimensional.

    no club
    looks gentle and older
    that could do more but the menthol note kills a lot
    • Nose
      Walnut shells in red wine water
      At first, the nose barely opens
      then comes incense, menthol, smoke rather in the background as a clue
      the nose looks cool and smooth
      Later come warm walnut notes, dark caramel with chocolate topping like the "Giant Candy" and again frankincense
    • Taste
      smooth and cool at the start
      Menthol immediately, Tanine
      cool and yet warm
      Slowly, smoke and heat develop in the oral cavity
      Resin, wood, dark liquorice, chocolate and sugar
      Honey water on the palate, very sweet, but a natural-tasting sweetness
    • Finish
      nice finish
      long
      Baked apple juice and barrel flavors
      Coffee and caramel

  9. Don Cassi scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    The first approach awakens associations of paprika chips in the nose. These are then replaced by mineral smoke, mild dried fruit and spicy-sour meat broth. Overall, it presents itself relatively restrained in aroma.

    In the mouth it is round and almost oily with the meaty associations from the nose.

    In the finish, a torrent of cold ash rolls over the tongue, which lasts a relatively long time but is increasingly accompanied by chocolate and dried fruit. Finally, a dry mineral note remains on the palate.
    Length: 7/10

    Overall, a successful, varied Bunna, which apparently has not only seen very young barrels.

    Rating: B+

    I like it, strong, rather dry, nice flavor. Very nice whisky.
    • Nose
      Fat, greasy, smoky, spicy, burnt logs, sweetish, not so peaty at all. Nice nose.
    • Taste
      In the mouth then bitter, salty, the smoke has a classier note, burnt wood but also something earthy, dry.
    • Finish
      The finish is also surprisingly dry, lots of smoke and ash, herbs, only a subtle sweetness in the aftertaste, but some menthol instead.

  24. hafssol scored this whisky 83 points Expert Junior

    A heavily peated Bunna, built up from contrasts. Not as simple as the smoky nose and the first taste may suggest, light in body full of earthy peat notes.
    Even if not predominant, smoke and even tar are clearly recognized, just before some slight sherry flavours enter the scene, resulting in a complex palate and persistent aftertaste.
    Good value for the money and very interesting (and strong) declination of a balance between smoke and slightly sweet cask flavours.

  26. Saftkenner scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Already a well-composed price-performance hit. However, this bottling is not suitable for everyone.
    At most it touches my prey scheme lightly. I prefer smoke that is a little more elegant and I have to get used to the fact that it is squeaky sweet on the palate.
    Ardbeg and Ledaig lovers will definitely appreciate the Toiteach A Dhà.
    Addendum: As the fill level decreases, it gets better and better, and above all more harmonious.
    • Nose
      First a full load of very sweet campfire smoke. The smoke is a bit pungent and tends towards Ledaig rather than Lagavulin or Laphroaig, and is less elegant. The alcohol stings a bit in the nose at first, is not so well integrated. With increasing heat it gets better and the aroma gets a softer and warmer touch.
      After a while, behind the smoke, other aromas such as vanilla and oak spice emerge. The Oloroso barrels are initially not noticeable through fruit, but only through a sour note. Later on, delicate cherry notes appear, as well as apple and pear (the ex-bourbon barrels are more likely to be responsible for the latter).
    • Taste
      Powerful, slightly oily and peppery. The alcohol makes itself felt a little. In addition to the strong presence of smoke, it has a strong sweetness that can also be found in some Ardbegs. In addition, vanilla, pineapple, damp wood, light bitterness and a little cherry
    • Finish
      Medium to long. The smoke and sweetness stay longer.
      Hups, someone threw a pineapple into the fire ...

    This Bunnahabhain Toiteach a Dhà is the sequel to the original Toiteach. Made with Moine peat barley, this whisky is aged in old bourbon and sherry barrels.

    This Bunnahabhain is very much extremely delicate. The first nose is very pleasant, on orange zest. The rest is very complex, mixing a smoky and salty scent that lets out notes of hay, sherry and vanilla. Although not a tsunami, this nose is a harmonious breeze.

    On the palate, the attack is herbaceous, then on peat smoke. The mid-palate is spicy (pepper), woody (old oak), and we sip notes of fresh mint, hazelnut, orange and dark chocolate. It is both tender and delicious, it is fluid and more than pleasant to drink.

    The finish gives me a nice minerality, we find the salinity characteristic of Bunnahabhain. The peat is manifested by notes of earth and barbecue smoke. A hint of custard sublimely concludes the tasting.

    This Bunnahabhain is a beautiful mellow distillate, of a rather disconcerting complexity which is the fruit of a well integrated peat and of the dual aging in sherry and bourbon barrels, which gives it a more than interesting aromatic profile.

    Heavy smoke, sticky peat. Earth, tar, soot. Behind, the influence of sherry is discreet. Morello cherries, blackberries. Campfire, grilling bacon. Wet tree bark. Little by little, the sherry becomes more insistent, greedy, almost syrupy. Cassis. Caramel and cranberry palate, apricot compote, but the spices rise very quickly, pepper and cumin, cherries, olives, quite strong finish, very long, charcoal, mossy earth, wood chips, elderberry, gravel.

    On the nose : medicinal haze (mint, camphor, ash), salty and oily smoke. Tiny bit of sweet notes in the distance : vanilla, riped red fruits. With time more nutty notes.
    Taste : Ok that's a lot of ashes. Camphor again which gives a nice greasy feeling but the fresher mint notes are still to be found. Powerful and one-sided
    Finish : Medium to long. Still a lot of ashes, spices. Camphor lingers on.

    I liked the first Toiteach and expected a close profile. It is not. This one is way more on cold ashes and has no sweet aspect whatsoever . Actually I have never tasted a profile that ash-oriented before. Not to my liking but still feels nicely done.

    6/10

    Sherry with peat smoke and then a campfire with a nutty and plum - I think this Bunna is great!
    • Nose
      90 90
      light campfire smoke and peat smoke (felt to me maybe 10-15 ppm and present in the nose; according to "schubiweine.ch: mixture of 90% 40 ppm peat malt and 10% barley malted barley"); the sherry with a distinctive nut aroma and some oak flavor is dominant here. Behind it comes a scent of seaweed mixed with a salt breeze from the spray and a little bit of citrus freshness, which for me is more orange. Very nice!
    • Taste
      86 86
      First the nut aroma (almonds and hazelnuts) from the sherry arrives gently in the mouth, then comes a good portion of peppery seasoning with a (peat) smoke pushed behind. Then it turns into a chocolate note - tendency towards dark chocolate. The sherry aroma with raisins (weaker) and plum (stronger) remains with the smoke for a long time.
    • Finish
      85 85
      medium to long. Sherry and smoke (now more campfire character) remain, as well as a light spice and some oak. Overall warming the throat.

    What a charming little youngster this Bunny! If you're a cheapskate on a budget like yours truly, you might find it a good bfyb. Excuse the ambassador-y musings.
    Nose: the peat smoke is not the most "Islay", but here that isn't a lapse for me. We're getting walnuts, pecans, caramel and an array of other pastry notes. It seems some fortunate sherry cask got involved.
    Taste: In one word? Fat. Featuring sweet, bitter and salty notes in that order. So, ballanced, let's say. More maritime than the nose. Raw cocoa beans could sum it up.
    Finish: Long, simple, but profound. Wet ropes, coffee, earthy notes, dry sootiness.

    A very, very nice whisky with a delightful nose, and while the taste and finish don't quite reach that level, they're nevertheless still very good to say the least.
    • Nose
      88 88
      a well integrated combination of sherry and smokey notes are the first things you notice. Behind that, there's a world of flavours opening up: woody, vanilla, herbal (sage) and a little minerally - irony notes. An extra few minutes in and the nose opens up even further with berries and red grapes. Simply wonderfull: so much to explore and to discover without ever being overwhelming or overly busy. A class act!
    • Taste
      86 86
      A little less versatile than the nose, but very well balanced, with a soft woody note taking centre stage. There's more fruit going on here, followed by some ashy smoke.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Long and a bit sharp initially. Peat and smoke lead the way with a prominent ashy note towards a more gentle, softer, fruity touch. Just as the finish fades out, it turns around once more with a subtle smokey touch that hangs around.

  53. maltbaum scored this whisky 86 points Member Senior

    For this amount of money. I can't complain. It needs some time to open up but great.
    Nose:
    ashy,a hint of sherry and the typical Nordic Seaish nose.
    Taste:
    is a little watery but still sweet and well balanced. Pea is what I get here as well. better than most of the other NAS ones by Bunnahabhain.

  54. Andytka3 scored this whisky 79 points Connoisseur

    86 points on average?

    Why on earth would you buy this if you can buy an Ardbeg 10, Caol Ila 12 or even a 5 y old Kilchoman Sanaig for the same money?

    This industry is getting mad. Rubbish NAS whisky for 40 Pounds.

    By the way I have blended the Arran 12 Master II with this one and on both sites it became a better whisky. So if you buy 2 not so good whisky, just blend it. Or if you have a bad whisky, blend it with a good one.

    Unusual but very interesting nose - the mouthfeel falls off and can not keep up.
    • Nose
      85 85
      Unusual smoke (frankincense), cooling nose - menthol, minty and citrus fresh, licorice, barely honey sweet, you have to look for the few Sherryoten.
    • Taste
      82 82
      Initially closed and not very expressive, cool. Light sweetness and smoke develop, caramel, hints of honey.
    • Finish
      81 81
      Medium. At first mild and sweet, the tannins soon take over. Dry smoke on the tongue to the end.

    A lovely Mòine variant of Bunnahabhain's single malt. This selection from a combination of Ex-Bourbon and Sherry casks results in delicate sherry sweetness, fruity citrus flavours and pleasant smokiness with subtle coastal aromas and warming spices. A full-bodied single malt with a long finish. Excellent value for money, too.

    • Nose
      There's immediately peat and smoke on the nose, nicely mixed with a delicate sherry sweetness and orange zests. Hints of gauze bandage emerge, followed by allspice, oak and cloves. Tender fruity with notes of apples and lemons, supported by tobacco leaves and subtle barbecue aroma in the back. A very pleasant nose indeed!
    • Taste
      Sweet and creamy on the palate with red apples and oranges, followed by vanilla and lingering sherry notes. Smooth but rich with lingering peat smoke, delicate black pepper and subtle oak spice. Nicely warming and mouth-filling.
    • Finish
      The finish is long, warm and slightly dry with oak and peat smoke. Sticky orange marmalade, gingerbread and dry notes of tobacco leaves on the tail.

      With water: Drier on the nose when a few drops of water are added. Less sweet -  but oak spice, notes of gauze bandage and ash emerge with a little orange fruit in the back. Bold and fairly spicy on the palate with cracked black pepper, prickling oak, allspice, ginger and cloves. Subtle peat smoke with creamy notes of oranges and apples towards the finish. The finish is still long but becomes very dry with oak, coal ash and a hint of peat smoke.
