  2. Birka scored this whisky 97 points Member Junior

    Together with four other Bunnahahbhain tasted in blind tasting!

    Already the nose promises a full bouquet of extensive flavors. The longer the whisky in the glass, the more intense it becomes ...

    The Taste:
    The nose promises a lot, the taste exceeds expectations!
    This malt is an elixir and reflects the full range of a very old, sherry-ripened and slightly bulbous whisky.

    (Please offer everything)

    Best whisky I had so far...

  4. Andara scored this whisky 90 points Expert Junior

    Was able to try it out at Aula Alliance Singapore. Really liked it, unexpected for a 40 year old. Quite fresh and vibrant and fairly priced.

    Fantastic, old, complex

  7. Fishmac scored this whisky 95 points Expert Junior

    Old, dirty and unusual. A lot of old white fruits like pear or morelas, mashrooms, tabaco. Super long finish. Colour is light as 3yo.
