  1. The_Osprey scored this whisky 84 points Expert Junior

    Bunnahabhain 4 year old 46% (Battlehill). Pale yellow but not that pale really considering the age. Fried banana on the nose. Deep-fried pastry, apple pie with some vanilla. Touch of nutmeg. Slightly green like woodland leaves. Taste is nice. There's more cask character than you might expect but it's still subtle of course. The spirit doesn't taste young but of course it's watered down and so it's going to hit the palate softer. Good at 46% though and it may well have been too hot to handle at 60 odd cask strength. Some of the subtle banana and leafy notes come through in the taste, with a little wood shavings and something slightly furry. It's nice actually. Not complex or full. The vibes behind the peat are maybe a bit young bubblegummy underdeveloped. Without the peat I think it would struggle a lot but as it is it's a good one. I could settle for a lower score but I'm going to give this one the benefit of the doubt. (3.5/84)

  3. Nightgrap scored this whisky 70 points Expert Junior

    Nose: freshly pressed grapes with an extreme vanilla note
    Taste: lively, out of round, slightly fruity, you can tell the 4 years
    Finish: peppery, short and painless and meaningless
