Whisky Reviews for Bunnahabhain 2007 SV

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.74 points

  1. Whisky-Connaisseur did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    A lovely, unpeated Bunnahabhain from a first fill sherry butt, which clearly left room for light fruity aromas. That means: this 12-year-old single malt is not overpowered by sherry, but shows a beautiful balance of light fruit, milk chocolate and spicy oak. Surprisingly drinkable, despite the almost 59% alcohol. That's a good thing, because with water the fruit aromas are quickly lost with the single malt becoming significantly dry and, therefore for me, much less attractive.

    • Nose
      Sweet start on the nose with dates, plums, vanilla and brown sugar. Behind this are notes of milk chocolate with nutty aromas, accompanied by tobacco leaves and some fresh mint. In the background a slightly perfumed note with a waxy structure and a hint of saltiness.
    • Taste
      Sweet and warming on the palate with creamy fruit notes, almost jammy. Accompanied by vanilla, toffee and milk chocolate, followed by a herbal note, some cinnamon and oak spice. This spiciness increases significantly with the 2nd sip and appears peppery.
    • Finish
      The finish is long lasting, creamy with nutty milk chocolate and notes of roasted oak.

      With water: On the nose, water brings more light yellow fruits to the fore, together with milk chocolate and nutty aromas. The perfumed note and the waxy structure have disappeared. Distinctly dry and peppery on the palate, almost chili-like. Oak spice and tobacco leaves with very few fruity notes in the background. The finish is still long, warming and again very dry with dark chocolate.
