  1. dram-drinker scored this whisky 90 points Moderator

    On the nose the muscat is totally dominated by fresh sherry notes, on the palate the muscat comes through better and gives a little bit the taste of a dessert wine. Why not? I find this one very drinkable and also enjoyable. Very good!
    • Nose
      90 90
      Intense... sherry nose - not muscat, OK, there are some dried fruits, raisins, very nutty - not bad
    • Taste
      91 91
      Punchy, oily, liquorice, ripe and dried fruits, grapes, raisins, apricots, good sweetness, sherry wood, brown sugar, ver rhum-like - very good
    • Finish
      89 89
      Long, burning, more dried fruits, a bit more woody and tannic

    Distell bought Bunnahabhain for their Scottish Leader brand, popular in Asia where many of the Feis Ile bottlings will inevitably end up. This 11yo spent 9 years in bourbon before two in Muscat.

    N: Standout notes include bourbon-soaked apricots and a deep dry squidgy foosty sweetness. Who doesn’t like that?
    T: A dry-not-drying mouthfeel.
    F: Super dessert-sweet, fruity, salty & caramel-y finish.
    C: A heavy bourbon influence but the Muscat finish takes the spirit & subsequent mouthfeel to surprising & pleasing new places. Memorable a year on.
