  1. FlamingSpeedy scored this whisky 89 points Expert Junior

    Like a beautiful red wine in front of the closed fire. Without smoke.

      Blackberry, elderberry - lots of dark fruits in a damp wooden box. A hint of lavender - very nice.

      A bit peppery - the alcohol could be a little better integrated, leather and wood polish. A very nice barrel. A lot of fruit sweetness.
    • Finish

      A little dry, makes the tongue furry. A slightly bitter note remains. Like a good old red wine. Great whisky.

  2. Jack McClane scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    We had this in a blind tasting of 7 awesome Islay malts. This was everybodys favourite in a group of 12!
    Not much more to say. Its an absolute stunner!

    Appearance: dark amber, very oily
    Smell: Very strong fresh tobacco, ripe fig, in the background a light sweetness, cake, vanilla, nutty, slightly clove
    Mouthfeel: Very elegant, very light burning, very dry
    Taste: Slightly acidic, fruity / dried fruit, a lot of oak, slightly peppery, only a certain sweetness in the background, leathery / nutty
    Finish: Slightly sweet, slightly tart / sour note, dominant oak, still peppery, sometimes light vanilla shines through, the whisky ends beautifully harmoniously! Very long lasting.

    A very dry, dry Bunnahabhain with many corners and edges. The components harmonize very nicely and have a certain force. The finish lacks a bit of strength.
