Whisky Reviews for Bunnahabhain 2014 DT

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.50 points

  1. temecles scored this whisky 87 points Newbie

    Smell: A light beech smoke, an iodine smell and a medicinal plant look
    On the palate: the salty side well pressed, a slight bitterness of mandarin and a medicinal touch.
    Final: an ashy side that is accompanied by a slight bitterness of white oak
    Alcohol is very well integrated roundness and controlled power without aggressiveness.
    A whisky that lets itself be savored by taking the time, or even forgetting its glass for a few minutes before rediscovering it.

    Nose: Completely Islay, with this smoke that tickles the nostrils, awaken the senses. The whole is round, the texture seems to me buttered, with this aspect honeyed, vanilla. Immediately there emerges a maritime atmosphere, with salt in generous quantities, which is associated with a sweet and sweet malt. It immediately makes you want to bring it to your mouth. However, this is not a whisky to drink hard. The opening will see a little all this salt and let diffuse slight chocolate notes, some slightly acid citrus. Camphor.

    Palate: It's concentrated ocean, salt abounds everywhere. The alcohol for a whisky of this age is incredibly integrated, not the least defect on this side, the power is totally transmitted as a support for the aromas. So we can enjoy its texture, which retains a certain roundness. The opening will certainly be beneficial to the mouth as well. We will have very clearly this influence of the sherry octave, with chocolate that is confirmed, citrus between bitter and sour, notes of red fruit, even if it persists camphor, tobacco, firewood.

    Finale: Very beautiful and persistent smoke, on the charcoal. A bitterness settles, resulting from citrus zests. Still some influences of the finish, wood, dark chocolate. Very nice surprise.
