  1. Defeatless scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    A good whisky: Yes!
    Sherry bomb: Yes!
    Worth the current price: No! (€129,95)

    There isnt much of the original Bunna left, a fainth hint in the background of the taste can be found.
    Yet a more then decent whisky.

    Currently for sale for €129,95 which is at least €50,- to much imho.

      Full on sherry notes. Quite a good sherry bomb, but neat it is quite difficult to get some of the characteristics of the Bunna here.
      Yet you get nice sweet red fruits, some tobacco and a faint hint of laurel in the background.

      With water:
      Opens up more. Quite a considerable change. There are more savory notes here and even a 'dirty' off note, which suits the nose.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Full and rounded arrival. Quite a burst of red fruit, fresh forest berry mix and sweet sherry notes. Quite oily too.

      With water: more of the original bunna comes in here. It turns a bit young and restless though. A bit more spicy and a bit fresh.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Long length. Again a burst of red berries and the sherry cask. Little more liquor and laurel here.
      Fades away with a honeyed red berry note.

      With water: Not much changes.

  11. Kerchak scored this whisky 88 points Member Junior

    A nice sherry bomb not really subtle but enjoyable
    Not much on the nose except sherry notes
    Palates is strong , warm, spicy , hint of toffee
    Finish is warm

  12. Dramming Dutchman scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    A very nice dram with many subtile flavours in all stages of the drink. Nice sherry, subtile smoke, sweet, fruits. Quite expensive for a 12 year old but having had a sample of 6cl from a friend, I would buy it for this price.

  16. Erik1908 scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    High scores and "a sherry bomb" I read in the reviews. The latter is definitely true.
    • Nose
      89 89
      Initially thick on the nose. With more than a few drops of water, it opens up and even explodes. Raisins, dark chocolate, dark fruit and currants. All served on a plate of dark and sweet sherry notes.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Undrinkable without water; a lot. Full body and, as expected, no subtle notes to be found. This one does not take prisoners. Explosion again of especially spicy notes. Fruity flavors are driven to the back. Eyes closed and enjoy the roller coaster.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Medium long to long finish. Exceptionally dry , warm and even wry in the far finish.

    • Nose
      Brown sugar, cherry, orange and sugared almond.
    • Taste
      Orange, blueberry, caramel and spice. Almond, and even more of it with water.
    • Finish
      Blackberry, caramel, orange and almond.

  19. serejja scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

      Chocolate, toffee, cinnamon, dark fruit, raisin, strong. A bit of spice
    • Taste
      88 88
      Dark fruit, spice, oak. Hints of caramel
    • Finish
      89 89
      Warm and long. As fruits go away it becomes dryer and shows more wine notes
