Whisky Reviews for Bunnahabhain 2008 DT

1 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 83.13 points

  1. SchottenDicht scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Nose: Barley, citrus, bred. Ginger.
    Mouth: An action ride - first intense barley, very voluminios, perfect bunnahabhain-taste, then citrus, salt being directly followed by wooden bitterness.
    Finish: The bitterness remains.

    Conclusion: I assume it would have better aged in a standard barrel - the octave gave to much bitterness. Especially the initial taste in the mouth is great, like a 12 year old bunna with cask strength, near perfection. But immediately the bitterness kills it off. What a pity.
