Whisky Reviews for Bunnahabhain 1967 MoS

23 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.63 points

  1. Thermidor scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    An absolutely excellent old Bunnahabhain that certainly delivers the goods, but lacks just a bit of distinction to go over that 90 threshold.

    I have a tiny suspicion this whisky might not have spent all its venerable over 40 years in the same cask on account of all the butterscotch in it, but I may be wrong.
    • Nose
      Strong butterscotch/taffy at first. Blind I'd guess it's a Speyside whisky. Some time in the glass, and just a drop or two of water, help open it up and then a tropical fruitiness emerges, with a bit of butter, and mixed fruit & licorice candy (Sirkusaakkoset for you Finns). More time gives me some salty hay, caraway, and a little wisp of smoke.
    • Taste
      Strong taffy and tropical fruit juice. It doesn't feel that complex on the tongue, but the body is admirably soft yet full, and the taste itself is satisfying, and never tiring. I'm of a mind that the cask has had a little too much influence on the spirit, even though any overt tannins etc. are missing, and the nose is IMO better than the taste, but it's hard to fault this one, really, even if it is no Auld Acquaintance.
    • Finish
      Long, sweet and fruity. Some time and a few drops of water bring in a nice waxiness to the tail.

    4 – Bunna 1967 33 year cask 3315 41.1% Malts Of Scotland, bourbon hoggy – WB ID 16817

    6 – Bunna 1968 50 year Cask Mos 18032 42.1% Malts Of Scotland, sherry butt – Warehouse Diamonds – WB ID 121396
    7 – Bunna 1968 34 year cask 43.8% Auld Acquaintance OB,sherry - WB ID 3105
    8 – Bunna 1960 39 year cask 43.4% Douglas Laing OMC, (peated) – WB ID 5597

    Bunna stopped peating in 1962 or 1963, so the OMC is a rare beast, and will be tasted last. , but will the Auld Acquaintance or the 50 year Mos tame it?

    RESULT
    1 - 60 Douglas Laing OMC
    2 - 68 Auld Acquaintance
    3 – 68 50 year Cask Mos 18032
    4 - 66 Feis Ile 2002 OB
    5 - 68 Adelphi almost as good as the 66
    6 - 67 Mos 33 year cask 3315
    7 – 64 Signatory
    8 – 64 Moon Import
    I really cannot split the 1960 Douglas Laing (peated) and the 1968 Old Acquaintance but on an emotional level I will give it to the DL, but both these whiskies must be the best Bunna ever bottled.

    The 50 year Malts of Scotland is quality and the 1966 OB Feis Ile is very rich and a quality dram and not far behind is the 1968 Adelphi which surprised me in a good way. The 67 Mos is nice and all of these 6 are way in front of the two 1964 offerings which were not really at the races because they are lighter with less going on basically.
    In truth the first 6 are all excellent, this was a great H2H.

    I first tasted this one in 2016 and last in 2018 so new notes for sample from a different bottle and this is much better than I remember. this is a quality dram.
    • Nose
      90 90
      Vegetal on the nose mixed with a little honey, then hints of lemon and orange, fruit pastille flavours spring to mind. This is also floral on the nose like soring flowers but them more lemon, lemon drizzle cake.
      Good nose
    • Taste
      93 93
      Palate
      Really fizzy and vibrant, bags of white fruit, a little honey, pepper notes emerge mixed with grapefruit After a few minutes it gets a little creamy then a massive wave of spices, this is really good

      Long, fruity & fizzy

    hmm. Mint on the finish. Altogether a very fine whisky, which is very pleasing.

    In the more than four decades of maturation, the Bourbon barrel has given a variety of intense and warming aromas to the Malt. Sweet fruit aromas, pleasant oak notes, full grain and pastry notes and a multi-layered spice harmonize very elegantly with each other. So I imagine a balanced old-school Bunna!
    • Nose
      Warming and intense, I am greeted by fruity aromas of overripe pineapple, kiwi and grapes that are wonderfully enveloped by nutty almonds and walnuts, liquid chocolate, an aromatic oak and a certain spice (oregano, rosemary, lavender). After a few minutes, a very subtle salty-maritime smoke component develops, which together with roasted pine nuts and pumpkin seeds, creamy barley mash and fragrant leather make the malt appear ever more complex.
    • Taste
      As already announced in Nosing, the particularly sweet fruit flavors spread wonderfully in the mouth. Add to that aromatic pumpkin seed notes, slightly bitter pine nuts, fragrant cigar leaves and some hemp tea. The oak shows here by sweet-resinous softwood and a little vanilla.
    • Finish
      After swallowing, the flavors of the tasting last a long time. In the process, notes of walnuts, pumpkin seed bread and barley mash remain in the mouth for a long and warming period after the fruitiness subsides.

    It is good to revisit certain whiskies from time to time
    Tried this again at The Gathering and noted it was a little thin on the palate but pleasantly spicy.
    I think my score of 88 points is still about right for this old Bunna

    Wonderful old Bunnahabhain from the category of 'They don't make 'em like this anymore'.
    • Nose
      Beeswax and light fruits with a hint of furniture polish and a nice amount of oak shavings. There's some mint, mandarin and lime, as well as vanilla custard and a touch of smoke. Soft, gentle. I could nose this forever.
    • Taste
      Creamy and oily, with sweet vanilla in abundance, as well as a good amount of menthol and some cinnamon. Mandarin, red apple and peaches. Slightly bitter wood notes, but nothing too extreme.
    • Finish
      Drying with plenty of oak, but the fruit also makes an encore.

  10. Defeatless scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Nose: This is wood at great age. Nice and mellow. Touches of vanilla, marshmallow and woodpolish. A lot of honey and cream come up when you warm this one up a bit. It is a very nice nose!

    Taste: A little sour arrival, but it turns honeysweet in a second. There are a lot of ripe mandarins here, honey and cream. And a slight lemon pinch.

    Body: Full and creamy

    Finish: Long and lingering. The wood shows up, more vanilla and cream. Also there is some tropical note here.

    Price: the original price was around 225 euro. Which is quite fair.

    Presentation: this was a sample.
