Whisky Reviews for Bunnahabhain 2009 AD

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.54 points

  1. Jackson05 scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Tasted in a whisky festival

    The outlook of many distilleries is simply to create a whisky that looks like cola because many people are attracted to this. Forget the quality, and if you can fire it onto market in less than a decade, all the better. The sherry is clean (unsulpured), and very modern. I find the spirit and cask are a bit forced. This is a hurried whisky, and it shows.

    Nope... definitely not a 90 pointer.... more like an 81...

    A heavy and intense Bunnahabhain. Dark mahogany in colour.
    Nose: The 59.3%ABV burns. Rich caramel, raisins, figs, nutty, some rubber, may be some sulphur, dried pomegranate, black dates.
    Palate: Rich, warm, intense sherry, mouth coating, some heat, some dry sherry, no smokiness.
    Finish: Dry, medium. Some acidity. Crisp caramel. Some toffee.

    Not a balanced dram. Quite intense & heavily sherried. No Bunnahabhain felt. Perhaps needs to open up lot. Still a warm, rich, young whisky.

  4. Luigisim scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Very good dram where the sweetness of the cask embrace the saltiness of the distillery.

    Two points less because is overpriced: a 10yo from 2009 cannot be priced at so high level
