Whisky Reviews for Bunnahabhain 11-year-old

- Love this one. It has the stale graham cracker thing that reminds me of the smell of old houses in Portland, of old craftsman homes. Nose is a bit yeasty but nice. Unique interplay of peat and sweet. I'm alternating between half ounce pours of this Bunna and the Longrow 9 Fresh Sauteres. A fun pairing.
- a wonderful bottling, very round, full and complex, very tasty
maritime smoky, citrus fruits and herbs, slightly sweet and spicy.
sues with chocolate, caramel, wueriz, malty, maritime, later slightly salty and spicy
long, warming with spices, oak, sweets and herbs, some chocolate and caramel.
- Paolo Cortado has been in high demand with Bunnanahbain lately and the exclusive bottlings sold out faster than you could see. Consistently to put a barrel of it in the Warehouse 9.
Qualitatively on the well known level, nothing to complain about and certainly a whisky, which I like to pour.
Starts very greasy and fat, creamy, slightly dirty and maritime, dried fruit, very sweet, but not dark, but more like dried mango or something, some tobacco and spice, in short a hint of freshly baked bread, slightly iodine, with time the fruity notes become a bit fresher and could now also be a sweetened mango yoghurt, citrus notes are added
nice mouthfeel, creamy, yellow fruit, vanilla, spices, nutmeg, peach and again mango, fruit cocktail or punch from the spices ago, pleasant to drink
somewhat astringent with water, drier, but somehow also interesting and sparkling
still totally fruity, sweet, pleasant, light dryness on the tongue, bittersweet, some salt, slightly dirty, somehow refreshing, medium long
- A Bunna pleasant to drink but where we could have expected more.
The nose is quite lively, good sherry, on coffee, dark chocolate, dried fruits. Simple but well balanced.
Mouth quite fine, alcohol is well integrated. The whole is quite dry, on the nut, milk chocolate, spices and mocha. Plant notes in the end.
Final spicy and woody, a little charcoal. The length is average, but retains the aromas of sherry.
- Good sherry cask without faulty notes - one of the better warehouse releases recently - great!
Fresh, intense, sherry notes, very nutty, spices, wet tobacco, sea breeze, hints of dried fruits, raisins - great!
Punchy, oily, liquorice, subtle sweetness, meaty, ham and bacon, soy sauce, more nuts, nutmeg, spices, sherry wood, pepper, ginger - excellent!
Long, warm, zesty, little more woody but not drying
- David Brodie wrote: Hopefully, I can explain this to everyone’s satisfaction. This is a lovely Cask, a Palo Cortado Hogshead, 55.6%abv, 11years old (2 year finish in the Palo Cortado) but due to a genuine error by (maybe me, I cannot remember), and some of my colleagues, some of the early labelling (all hand-written) is quoting 14 years old. Absolutely no intention to mislead here, because this dram stands tall on its own merits, and I apologise for the confusion that this may have caused. We would never set out to mis-quote an age on a bottle. Thanks, David.
