  1. Kantenmechaniker scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    One of the best Sauternes ripenings I've ever tried.
    • Nose
      as expected sweet, honey, vanilla, ripe sweet mirabelle plums, a light nut note in the background, macadamia, melted white chocolate, in the background a light maritime note comes through, he is totally supple
    • Taste
      very sweet and creamy, ganache, honey, vanilla, light acidity of the mirabelles, then comes an intense interlude with nuts and light roasted aromas, some salt tickles the tongue, need no water
    • Finish
      Haselnusseis, really as if you had just licked it, even from the mouth feeling, creamier it is not

  2. Mr.Wong scored this whisky 93 points Expert Senior

    A fabulous winey Bunnahabhain with a fantastic influence of a Sauternes Finish.
    • Nose
      I smell a lot of dark fruits, wine, raisins, honey, propolis, white grapes, plenty of dried plums, dried apples. I also smell notes of cream and nuts.
    • Taste
      Winey, sweet, more wine, cinnamon
    • Finish
      The finish is also winey, slightly oaky, but has a lot of dried raisins.

  5. maltaholic scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Deep brown. Gorgeous!

    Very much fruit in the nose.
    But also oak.
    He smells older than he is.
    Moist leather, grapes, berries.

    An explosion in the mouth.
    Powerful, fruity, strong, sweet.
    The wood also has a bitterness.
    There's liquorice, ripe, fermented fruit.
    Furry, musty.
    And then again creamy, caramel.
    There goes back and forth.

    A very interesting malt.
    Very well!

  9. DannyDram scored this whisky 90 points Expert Junior

    Beautiful and pronounced complex nose, but continues to decline across all three phases. A nice but limited whisky. I prefer to consume a nice Sauternes, a Chateaux d'Yquem.

  10. Damocles scored this whisky 98 points Newbie

    A dream whisky
    • Nose
      Honey, sweet malt, sweet Sauternes influence, notes of dried fruit, toffee and creamy coffee
    • Taste
      Rich on the palate, sweet, mouth-filling, sweet fruits, rich sauternes, roasted nuts, creamy salted caramel and dark chocolate
    • Finish
      Sweet fruits and dark chocolate on the finish
      An excellent whisky.
