Whisky Reviews for Bunnahabhain 1997 MM

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.82 points

  1. Corso_theRed scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Interesting whisky by MMD. Bonuspoints for the complexity, but the palat has killed it for me after a few drams. Liked it more initially.
    • Nose
      Moderately strong peat smoke, but very little iodine. More of a partially dried campfire. The bourbon casks are noticable after a while. Pronounced wine aromas with lots of berries.
    • Taste
      Naphtaleen (mothballs), sweet and prickly tanginess. Mango and grapes, which are overshadoed by the strong initial notes of mothballs and earthy peatiness.
    • Finish
      Very drying like a good red wine.
