  1. Monte Gehro scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Without water almost brutal. A few drops of water take the brute, but still leave enough intensity.
    Very intense Bunna, who has received a lot of good on tap. Blind, I would guess the twice as old.
    • Nose
      Clearly audible smoke immediately after opening the sample vial. After waiting in the Snifter: Fats Sherrynase, dark fruits, oily, somehow also "dirty". Underlaid by slightly dry Rauchnote.Der high alcohol content is quite noticeable with neat bizzles in the nose noticeable.
      Some water makes the smoke stand out more clearly.
    • Taste
      Thick, sweet, and strong in the mouth. Seasoning and alcohol prove the tongue. I can not detect smoke here. Wonderfully oily with water.
    • Finish
      Fairly long, quite sweet, warm, with light smoke in between.

    I bought one during my visit there. I hadn't even planned to visit Bunnahabain.

    After I tasted it with colleagues from the industry, we ordered 20 of them....

    Great!!

    Excellent example for contemporary Bunna! Nice sweet smoke and spices. (not so much peat) Quite mellow even with the high ABV. Fresh sherry. really enjoyed this. Thanks Thea for the sample.

  11. Segens scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    Great Bunna experience where the Cask killed the distillery but the taste and quality counts and for 8 years it is simply great. I love it!
    • Nose
      Cherry chocolate &

      Dark fruits. The alcohol is not perfectly implemented but doesn’t harm as it has a dirty touch even without any huge smoke influence

      Nevertheless the peaty part is there even if it is very decent!
    • Taste
      The youth and high alcohol carries a lot of taste again of cherries and chocolate. Some honey sweetness comes through after awhile. Nice!

      Oily and thick you can have this dram for minutes in your mouth! Hilarious!
    • Finish
      And there is the dirty part back but also not negative. A very aggressive finish which lasts very long and the smoke underlines this great performance !

  12. Arquebus scored this whisky 93 points Expert Senior

    Stunning quintessential Bunnahabhain! Thick, rich oily, monster of a dram. Stacks of peat smoke monster meats sherry bomb with a twist of Bunny 'rubberyness'. Thinking of the standard Bunny's (12 & 18s and especially some of the recent  NAS bottlings) - this barrel I imagine - would be the type that you'd use to blend (in small quantities) and  flavour lesser barrels.

    Great Bunnah!

    Either I got the last sip from the barrel or this bottling has gotten a lot of suspended matter.

    Like its predecessors, this bottling is a great sherry grenade with nice smoke and strong alcohol.

    You have to love the filthy Bunni's, so you'll like it too.

    Really good level of peat and smoke and the sweetness and fruity flavors - definitely one of the best Warehouse 9 bottlings - currently my favorite
    • Nose
      Sweet, peaty, oaky, raisins, milk chocolate - great
    • Taste
      Very very oily, thick, mellow, very good balance of the peat, oak and sweetness, a lot of dark fruits, coffee, hints of toffee, tobacco, cigares - fantastic
    • Finish
      Long and warm, intense oak notes, dark chocolate - very good
