  1. matts scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Character: A youthful, initially somewhat impetuous bottling, which benefits from some water. Rather light-fruited, enormously creamy and carried by sweet malt, vanilla and caramel. Not too complex, but coherent, intense and diluted with a nice soft mouthfeel. Blind I would have typed here rather on a Bourbon cask storage.
    Rating: I'm happy to have had this Bunnahabhain in the glass. He knows not only with his key data, but also taste to please. A bottling with which you can do little wrong. A candidate for a large bottle is not this Bunna for me. For that I miss that certain something and I have this kind of whisky currently just too much open. I have a good 88 points today.
    • Nose
      Initially, a light, non-maritime peat smoke blows from the glass. There are plenty of oranges, rich delicious malt and cereal flavors, vanilla, caramel and fudge. Over time, the nose becomes sweeter. More and more fruits are coming to fruition: pears, sweet wild strawberries, ripe red berries, a little peach and sweet, floury apples. Owing to this overall picture, a fresh and remarkably peppery mint stretches ostensibly. The youthful intensity of this bottling is unmistakable. The alcohol stings initially quite strong in the nose. This Bunna wants to be tamed with some water. With a teaspoon of water, the nose becomes much creamier and more harmonious, without losing tension. I like the diluted version better in any case.
    • Taste
      The start is very soft and creamy. Almost as on velvet paws, sherry flavors of the light-fruited variety enter the stage. I can hardly grab individual fruits. In addition to oranges, I especially perceive ripe pears. Dressed in sweet vanilla and caramel and bedded on a beautiful barley malt, which with time increasingly provides a tasty bitter contrast. For a moment, a slightly peppery spiciness rears up and also in the transition to the finish, it remains a bit rougher in taste. The peat smoke and the oak are becoming more and more effective and push the sweet malt-fruit-fudge mixture slightly into the background.
    • Finish
      The finish is medium long. It starts relatively harsh with a lot of peat smoke and oak. At no time bitter and consistently accompanied by sweet bright fruits, malt and caramel. In between, the aftertaste becomes remarkably chocolaty and nutty. Towards the end, the delicious oak tree takes command again. With a nice portion of almonds and a last greeting from the caramel, the drop sounds nice and soft.

    —— Blind Test ——
    • Nose
      86 86
      Initially sweet sugary - association with some Sherry Keg bottlings from Glenfarclas. Pastries, nuts, light spice. Alcohol is slightly pungent. Over time, I find in the background a fruity note, possibly grape, to something medical.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Strong onset, sweet, nuts, then bitter, espresso, woody spice.
    • Finish

      Medium long, getting thin quickly. Bitter notes, slightly astringent, spicy, slightly sour.

    Nose: Buttery, creamy and some caramel. He initially seems a little bit of Maritim, then the Sherrynoten slowly blaze through, with some raisins and slight echoes of oak.

    Mouth: It starts relatively gently and reservedly. But then it unfolds and its aromas are distributed throughout the mouth. Nice creamy, raisins, oranges and caramel is to taste.

    Finish: The finish is gentle, slightly dry in the mouth and more mid-length. Some oak and orange peel are left in the mouth.

    I do not need a dark sherry soup, this barrel is more to my liking. A very harmonious whisky, which looks quite restrained in the nose, but knows absolutely to shine in the mouth. Most likely, the sherry was allowed to age in barrels of American white oak. I like the part!

    Hey, I´d prefer the 12yo OB... this one is just boring, missing this lite hint of peat what a Bunna needs to work.
