Whisky Reviews for Bunnahabhain 1989 SMD

1 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.00 points

  1. HokkaidoUni scored this whisky 89 points Expert Junior

    Great alternative to the 12 year with coastal salt, ripe fruit and just a hint of vanilla. The distillate shines through

    ***Update: did a second tasting alongside the standard 12 and a BBR 2003 15 year Bunna. The complexity of the nose and palate is clear in the bottle with a lot of nice juicy fragrance and salinity, stone and a hint of smoke
    • Nose
      90 90
      Nose: Ripe juicy yellow tree fruits, pear and lemon gum drops. A little bit of caramel and vanilla. A little bit of sea salt.

      Second tasting: juicy pear, salt, green apples, brambles, yellow fruits, castor oil. A little flint, some must on fragrant juicy green muscat grapes, and just a hint of chimney smoke. With water a little vanilla rises.

      Palate:

      Much like the nose. Full bodied and oily.

      Second tasting: flinty, some pepper, pear drop candies, yellow garden flowers, chenin blanc, ginger drops. With water more flint and chalk
    • Finish
      88 88
      Finish:

      A hint of ginger spice and bitterness, and lemons. Medium finish

      Second tasting: same
