Whisky Reviews for Bunnahabhain 1977 AD

    Tasting Notes by Adelphi;

    1 of only 201 bottles from cask 7850

    We have always been impressed by how well Bunnahabhain is made: it invariably satisfies, but this elderly expression adds layers of complexity to the original make. It has been drawn from an American oak hogshead and has a deep amber colour, shot with orange. The nose is immediately deep and heady, with an indefinable floral/fragrant note that might be honeysuckle. Some hair lacquer and warm vinyl, then snuff and cedar-lined cigarette boxes and the waxed paper in an empty tobacco tin. It changes all the time. Water increases the waxiness of the paper to candlewax, and raises vanilla ice cream and light coconut (both aromas from the wood). In the mouth, the texture is chewy and the flavour engagingly sweet-and-sour, with lingering coconut. In superb condition for its age, and a splendid example of the make.

    Bunnahabhain 27 yo 1977/2005 (50.6%, Adelphi, cask #7850, 201 bottles)  Colour: gold. Nose: sort of discreet at first nosing but with some very nice notes of wax, overripe apples, freshly cut quince… Hints of wet dog (don’t ask me which ‘brand’). Rather refined and not explosive at all, but Bunnahabhains are rarely explosive. Some nice notes of sweet olive oil and caramelized fruits. A nice, ‘whispering’ nose.
    Mouth: rather sweet but quite nervous, starting with quite some argan oil (from the Anti-Atlas of course) and beeswax, developing on Turkish delights and fir honey. A little water makes it very dry, strange…The finish is rather long and very waxy. Very nice but not overly complex. 84 points.
