  1. Baanaanaabob scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    What a sherry bomb! Christmas cake, candies fruits figs toffee etc but nothing overpowering and a superb balance

  2. dram-drinker scored this whisky 96 points Moderator

    Wow! Color is between old oak and treacle - anyhow very dark! Absolutely great and flawless sherry cask! In my mind this one is on the same level like the famous Auld Acquaintance after tasting both head to head. For sure one of the best Bunnas. Flabbergasting!

      Intense sherry notes, dark dried fruits, plums, dates, hints of raisins too, roasted nuts, spices, nutmeg, cloves, whiffs of herbs, acacia honey - fantastic!
    • Taste
      97 97
      Punchy, oily, creamy, fruity, truck loads of dark and dried fruits, toffee, coffee, dark chocolate, subtle sweetness, powerful oak wood and sherry, more spices and herbs - superb!

      Long, warm, more fruits, spices, and good wood, not drying at all - endless - excellent!

  5. Allandale scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    A rich and creamy body.
    • Nose
      Smoky. Fresh  see breezes. Complex. Maritime  notes.
    • Taste
      Fresh, concentrated  flavours. Usually  eatery. Ginger-toffee. Becoming nutty. 
    • Finish
      Dusty. Spicy-shop. Long and warming.

  6. QuarterCentury did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    A limited edition Bunnahabhain bottled by the distillery. Distilled in

    1966 and released at the turn of the millenium after 35 years in wood.
