Whisky Reviews for Bunnahabhain 1979 HI
6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.47 points
- You either like it or not. It is actually too strong about Sherry only for my taste. It actually reminds me on the new edition of the Bunnahabhain XXV with 46.3% abv.
Very strong sherry cask, leathery, nutty
Oily, smooth and again extremely sherry - I mean not just like a strong sherry cask but rather pure Sherry mixed into it. There is some sweetness but not much else.
Medium long and pretty punchy and rather bitter
- Pretty dry oak, leather shoes, short finish. All in all I have expected a bit more complexity.
