Whisky Reviews for Bunnahabhain 1988 DL

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 91.00 points

  1. Calmar scored this whisky 93 points Connoisseur

    A beautiful age-old mole, not at all tired, noble, delicate, airy, complex fragrance becoming more sweet and sherry continues subtle and deep taste / finish, a lot of spicy, aged oak perfectly inscribed into the general picture, the foundation is all in sight, branded sea and industrial notes complement and shade the barrel (and?).
    • Nose
      Open, wet, the first nose - marine and mineral notes; very light and saturated, algae, lemon, green grass, flower shades, wet stones, wet metal, wool, something light, manufactured goods - polish, cleaning agents, plastic, industrial textiles; sweet creamy confectionery notes - fondant, boiled condensed milk, coffee, nuts, a little dried fruit, earth notes.
    • Taste
      Thick, saturated, a lot of old oak, furniture varnish, cinnamon, sandalwood, cappuccino, flower-perfume notes, cardboard, a little pepper.
    • Finish
      Spicy, warming, oak, bitter bark, wax, resin, little needles, mineral-metallic taste, cocoa, nuts, sweet confectionery notes, furniture varnish.

  2. Kaleva scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Great whisky, complex and very balanced, with core maritime motives. Very elegant and I would say noble. Needs time to get into it. Hard to find and really expensive - close to half a thousand euros.
    • Nose
      Maritime, slightly minerally, spicy (cinnamon, cardamom, clove) prunes and raisins, dried red apples, black tea, sherry, damp moss, toffee, blood orange, some solvent notes
    • Taste
      Slightly sweet, salty, minerally, maritime feeling, oak tannins, oatmeal, some pepper, lemon zest
    • Finish
      Medium-long, oaky, malty and nutty notes, old leather
