Whisky Reviews for Bunnahabhain 2005 SMWS 10.153

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.20 points

  1. Tommyknocker scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    In fact, a lot of quince (high live the power of suggestion) and a lot of yellow fruit, a lot of banana, peach compote. Finally a banana bunna again! But also Maritim and slightly dirty as befits NEN Bunna. Very nicely done!

    Notes from the SMWS website: https://www.smws.com/the-prince-of-quince

    Initial price June 2018: 66,00 GBP

    "Curiously harmonious aromas beckoned us for a closer inspection as shortbread formed an allegiance with heather, quince and prickly gorse bushes in bloom. Something spicy lingered like ginger cake and peppercorn sauce with its joyfully oily texture. Subtle woody notes washed up like driftwood on a warm sandy beach that developed into a salty twang of sea air. A hefty wallop of chilli on the tongue softened into dried flowers which in turn morphed into dried herbs with the distinct character of sugar coated fennel seeds. Fresh ginger danced around white pepper before a coat of green lay down shades of grape skin, green olives and gooseberries with a hint of marzipan. The finish touched on parsley and left us with the welcome oiliness of juniper berries."
