Whisky Reviews for Bunnahabhain 1998 AD

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.20 points

  1. hs305 scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    [December, 2006]  Finally I finished this bottle that I bought for 56 Euro in June, 2005.

    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 82,5.  My notes simply state "battered by sulphur and drowned in sherry..."

    Serge says;

    Bunnahabhain 7 yo 1998/2005 (59.3%, Adelphi, cask #2921)  Colour: similar but more orange. Nose: much more sherried, less fruity, more on cake, caramel, toffee and fruitcake. Whiffs of smoke, huge notes of Werther’s, hot cake, pastries… And now we have the red fruits, mostly strawberry jam and liqueur. A little more complex than the OB, less ‘rashly’ fruity. Very nice balance, at that, nicely integrated despite its young age. Mouth: powerful and very sweet but, curiously, more easily drinkable without water than the OB. Lots of crystallised oranges, apricot jam, praline, caramel, the whole being quite simple and maybe too direct. Growing notes of rubber, slightly disturbing. With water: gets even more caramelly, also nuttier, creamier… Almost like a hazelnut liqueur, with slightly shorter, but more balanced finish with something ashy in the background. Certainly better in my books but still not a winner. Both were probably a little too simple. 82 points.
