Whisky Reviews for Bunnahabhain 1978 MM

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.74 points

  1. vredensever scored this whisky 93 points Expert Senior

    Aroma : iodine, a little "zhivotinki" and minerality, spices, dried fruits (raisins, prunes, dates), jam, coffee, milk chocolate, cream, a little varnish. Great! The taste is rich, sweet: obvious wine tones, salt, berries, dried fruits (prunes, dates, figs), chocolate, cream, oak with bitter taste. Delicious! The aftertaste is long, astringent-oak: spices, prunes, dates, pastries, creams; in the development of wine notes, berries, tobacco. Conclusion . Interesting batch. Sherry and port. It turned out very attractive whisky. Curious game of wine shades, chocolate and oak. Perfectly complex, consistent. The right fortress. There is nothing to complain about. Very good! The score is 93 (n23t24f23b23).

  2. HunterRomario scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    A nice surprise in the Big Peat package that Nethar sent me by post. Great lacos. To thank Nethar for the opportunity to taste this beautiful whisky, it was really an experience.
    • Nose
      Dense, strongly sherry, honey-sweet. Leather, sweet wood, lots of chocolate, spices, Belgian pralines, a bit windy. (90 b)
    • Taste
      From the first moment, the taste is luxurious. Sweet warm spice, clear influence of sherry. Due to age, I was expecting a monster, but Bunnahabhain was surprised by the sophistication and distinctive elegance. Chocolate, raisins, liquor from exotic wood ... just great. This is being drunk alone. I did not drink, and it was not even necessary. (94 b)
