  1. peatbogger scored this whisky 90 points Specialist

    I've found a lot of goodies in the SV Cask Strenght Collection, this is no exeption.
    It's more than twice the price of an OB 12YO, but boy, this is still value for money. If you can get it at less than £90 as I did, grab it and enjoy it.

      Judging by 1st fill sherry, color and ABV I expected some A'bunadh like monster. It's not.
      Don't misunderstand, there's abundant sherry.
      But it's rounder, not so raw, not so woody.
      It's almost more grape than prune, and in such a way it got more of a brandy touch.
      Milk chocolate, soft wood, gentle on the alc.
    • Taste
      90 90
      It's rich, it's bold, and neat it's a bit hot, good hot.
      It's also solid, so a little water doesn't kill it.
      Sweet dark fruits, black currant.
      Seriously strong espresso.
      Dry exotic wood. Wood spice, softening with water.

      This is quite long, and quite evolving.
      Hot wood spice slowly fading.
      Then it goes sweet on dark fruits again.
      And it leaves you with a long lasting taste of a black currant lozenge.

  2. karloff scored this whisky 89 points Specialist

    Probably one of the most none Bunnahabhain types I have ever tasted. Still loved it though. This was a sample courtesy of peatbogger.

      Nose is right in the glass and it just tickles nicely. Almost bourbonesque. Lots of red fruits as you would expect, glazed cherries and toffee apple are the ones that spring to mind straight away. Great to inhale because it flies through the nostrils does a u turn and flies back out losing nothing.

      Again Bourbonesque. Has peatbogger thrown in a ringer? I agree with him it is hot but a good hot. Plus it is one of those that coats the mouth and drys but still leaves everything there. I could imagine this would give some people heartburn but not me
      I would never have thought this was a Bunnahabhain
    • Finish
      89 89
      The finish is long and tangy. A couple of deep breaths and it will leave those nice fruit summer pudding straight out of the oven flavours.

  5. dramspotter scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    There is not much to fault about this whisky in terms of a pleasant sherry drammer. My only criticism is that it plays it a little too safe, lacking some intriguing element to keep a greater interest.
    • Nose
      83 83
      pina colada, swimming pool, chocolate, yeast, sherry vinegar
    • Taste
      84 84
      very integrated sherry, oily, a bit of orange
    • Finish
      82 82
      very pleasant, but not long enough

  6. dram-drinker scored this whisky 88 points Moderator

    I would agree with the Brandy resp. Cognac style - rather a new style bottling - getting better with some air, more fruity, little citric - pretty drinkable but water recommended
    • Nose
      88 88
      Very nutty, walnuts, wet wood, hints of toffee and butterscotch, whiffs of vanilla, sherry wood, dried fruits, little raisins, dates, spices, hints of xmas spice, chocolate - not bad
    • Taste
      89 89
      Very punchy but also very oily, creamy, subtle sweetness, more nutty, more spicy, oak wood rather than sherry wood, more dried fruits, hints of leather - pretty good
    • Finish
      87 87
      Long, burning, little more dry, oak wood - water recommended
