Whisky reviews for Bunnahabhain 1968 TWA

2 users have left 2 reviews for this whisky. Average rating is 91.12 points.

  1. hs305 scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    [January, 2012]  Together with friends I emptied a bottle that I bought for 149 Euro in August, 2011.

    In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 90.  My notes state firm wooden notes that are bearable nevertheless.  The malt itself is very fine.

    "Bunnahabhain 43 yo 1968 (45,7%,
    The Whisky Agency & Three Rivers Tokyo 2011, ex-bourbon hogshead, 211 btl.)

    Nose: very fruity – slightly tropical. Lots of juicy pears with banana. Plums. Honey. Grows sweeter with hints of fruit jams (strawberry and apricot). Not completely fruity though, there’s a layer of coastal notes (very soft saltiness) and subtle pine resin which makes more complex. Great nose. Mouth: oily and smooth. Still fruity (banana, grapefruit, orange) although the oak is louder now and adds a resinous bitterness. Soft spices (nutmeg) and salt. Hints of liquorice and mint. Finish: long and rather mineral with notes of vanilla, soft herbs and oak.

    A great nose and (as often with oldies) a slightly less impressive palate. High class and very drinkable.
    Around € 215.

    Score: 90/100"
