Whisky Reviews for Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky 2005 WhB

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.80 points

  1. LittlePeat scored this whisky 88 points Expert Junior

    • Nose
      87 87
      Relatively shy. Heavy smoke, algae, powdered sugar, coniferous resin. In the background maybe the Kumquat.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Very spicy, a bit aggressive. Needs a lot of water, but this can also be well tolerated. Smoke, coniferous resin, sweet kumquat, wood.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Pulls down a long time. Spicy, woody, smoky, resinous.

      Conclusion: too little fruit for me. A sherry finish would have been good for him. Still a good whisky. Rather on the "elegant" side.

    A nice Bunnahabhain with a clear profile: fruity, coastal and some decent peat!
