Whisky Reviews for Bunnahabhain 1998 AD

1 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.40 points

  1. Whisky-Connaisseur did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    This is a very nice sherried and unpeated bunnahabhain. Not the most
    complex dram on the planet but rather straight down the line. Delicate
    sweetness but lacks the delicious dark ripe fruits mostly accompanied by
    heavily sherried whiskies.

    • Nose
      The nose starts off with lots of sherry flavours, complemented by
      slightly woody notes, and polished mahogany furniture. A hint of
      balsamic vinegar emerges, very creamy, along with a whiff of smoke.
      Surprisingly, there's no fruit.
    • Taste
      Boy, this is initially bold and mouth-coating. Voluptuous with sherry,
      brown sugar sweetness, along with some woody tones, cinnamon, lingering
      oak spice and subtle smoke. Surprisingly dry on the palate.
    • Finish
      Medium to long and warm finish. Doesn't change much though.

      WITH
      WATER: Still sweet on the nose with lots of sherry, an increased
      spiciness on the palate, followed by a medium and warm finish.
