Whisky Reviews for Bunnahabhain 2000 AD
4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.08 points
- This is really a top-whisky! The nose promises a lot but the taste exceeds all those promises!
Little bit salty. A lot of sherry and oak. Old leather. Brown sugar and very sweet.
Dry and sweet. A lot of sherry and brown sugar.
Long and sweet, served by a very pleasant bitterness.
- Tasting Notes by Adelphi;
Ex sherry butt, 1st fill European oak with a beautiful dark colour.
Bunnahabhain usually has a maritime character, but not necessarily smoky. Tasted by over 20 agents from around the globe, our combined international palate found: tablet and treacle toffee on the nose, pumpernickel, hazelnuts, dryish, not as sweet smelling as a Speyside. Truffles were spotted. To taste, distinct saltiness, more treacle toffee, bacon, maple syrup and pancakes – in fact, an entire Canadian breakfast (and no Canadian judges). Caramelized red onion pops up, then Sushi nori and Soy sauce. Incredibly mature for its age. Most unusual for a Bunnahabhain.
earthy, red-winey sherry, tobacco, meaty, compost, coal, some traces of sulphur, cockchafer/maikaeffer (?!), (84)
Later: turning sweeter w thick & more direct sherry notes, some cherries & pastry, vanilla, wet chalk, old books, nice balance now altogether (88)
dense, sweet & thick sherry, slightly bitter as well, tobacco, rotting wood, peat, black tea, again sulphur of the dirty motoroil/tar-y kind (88)
Later: less bitter, sweeter, with some chocolate now as well (89)
tannins remain standing, nice sweetness coming through but still with a dirty streak, red berries, red-wine, earth with a drip of motoroil, turning dry, (86)
Later: nice sweetness prevails, but drifts off into quite some bitterness occasionally (84)
