  1. hs305 scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    [October, 2018] I had a dram during the Cadenhead warehouse tasting at Campbeltown and I bought a bottle for 90 GBP.

    This is the Traditional Scotch profile of Bunnahabhain what is completely distillate-driven. It is just lightly peated (the 70ies and 80ies Bunna style) and dangerously quaffable. I like this style much more than the modern heavily peated and/or extremely wood-driven Bunnahabhain releases...

      The colour is old gold and the nose offers a fine traditional Scotch profile with lots of buttery, nutty, waxy and marzipan aromas. The peat is very light and hides shy in the background as do the wooden notes with spices and some tannins. It needs some time to fully open up but it grows quite impressively from a rather shy start...
    • Taste

      The taste is layered on sweet fruity, honey and nutty flavours that are complemented by spices, waxes and shy peaty notes over time. All greatly balanced with no flaw that I can find. It is nicely chewable with a perfect mouthfeel. Some water strengthens the spicy side in the nose and the waxy / oily flavours on the palate but I like the neat dram better.
    • Finish

      The initial mouthfeel is warming and coating with minor peppery moments. The finish is medium to long and adds more marzipan and peppery spices towards the end. No distracting moments here either. I like it!
