Nose

Cough sweets, honey, menthol, mango and the longer you leave it the fruitier it gets. Apricots and peaches arrive with a hint of vanilla.

Taste

Zesty, tons of fruit, mango, melon, peach,  custard cream biscuits, then some orange, light and zesty

Finish

Quite long with a nice lingering sweetness.

Comments

Not your usual Bunna more like a Springbank. very nice.

Nose : A bit closed at first. Notes of varnish and fruits. Within a few minutes, we can pinpoint the fruits : apples, peaches, whiffs of banana. There's some honey too and subtle notes of oak. More time gives resinous and red fruits notes. Complex, subtle and flavory. Very elegant.

Mouth : Oaky and fruity. The oak is under control with just a few spices. The fruits bring a nice sweetness and freshness. Oranges, yellow fruits, bananas. Vanilla. A pinch of salt.

Finish : Medium, herbal, minty and slightly salty.


This is the kind of whisky which must be enjoyed slowly. Complex and elegant, it needs time to be fully appreciated.

Nose

Aaaah! That fruity Bunna 68 smell! Oh man, I could nose this for days! First of all a lot of \ fruits: pears, peaches and I think I detect some kiwi. Some melon in there as well and maybe some coconut. Second of all there is wax in it, very creamy. Lots of wood oils as well. A nice subtle oaky touch. Nose also has a floral feel to it. An ultimate round nose. So subtle, though fully flavoured. Just lovely.

Taste

A lot of body for its age. Again, sooo good. Nice tingly mouthfeel and mouthcoating (not very thick/oily, but very fully flavoured). More fruits and some spices are introduced. I'm thinking anyseed. A bit more woody then the nose, but not too much. Again very well balanced.

Finish

Really long, with white fruits and light spices.

Comments

Bottles like this makes whisky more than a hobby. This creates it into a passion. You don't drink whiskies like this everyday, but if you find something of this quality it keeps you going for months!

Bunnahabhain 43 yo 1968/2011 'Dram Together' (46.5%, The Whiskyman, 120 bottles) Five stars Colour: pale gold. Nose: this baby seems to be cleaner, purer, straighter than the others, although it’s a bit shy at first nosing. The fruits are clean and fresh, not overripe at all, and they include cider apples, white peaches and greengages. Yes we’re pretty far from the tropics this time, even if there are a few bananas, then honey, leather, raisins, hazelnuts and pine sap. It’s very elegant, complex old Bunnahabhain. Something coastal after quite a few minutes (seaweed). Mouth: just a very clean, very straightforward and extremely fresh fruit salad. A miracle at such old age. Spice mix for mulled wine, then some manzanilla, with quite some salt. Finish: medium long, creamy, on liqueurs and a little mint. Salty and lemony aftertaste. Comments: this wonderful oldie remained as fresh as a newborn baby, yet it became very complex. Fascinating how the oak got integrated despite the spirit’s relative lightness. SGP:751 - 92 points.

Nose

Flowery, perfuming, fruity, floral and later: There he is, the typical Bunnahbhain profile can be detected

Taste

Surprisingly powerful, floral, briny, vanilla type flavors

Finish

Mild, spicy, fruity and some (milk) acidity

Comments

A briljant dram, very much in the floral section.

Nose
Formidable, mais vraiment formidable. C'est fruité (surtout des fruits exotiques), vanille, le saveur d'amande (comme un gâtteau aux amandes)
Taste

Sans addition d'eau: exactement comme au nez, toujours formidable. Avec qq gouttes d'eau: quelle différence! Ce Bunna devient très amère. Yuk! Le fruit exotique est toujours là, mais les saveurs sont camouflé par le goût amer. Il manque aussi un peu de 'punch' AMHA. Si j'avais su que l'ensemble devient amer après qq gouttes d'eau, je ne l'avais jamais fait. Quel dommage et quelle surprise que le saveur de ce Bunna a tellement changé.

Finish

Toujours cette amertume (m*rde alors), sec, un peu de réglisse.

Comments

Cela prouve encore une fois que les sélections de Dominique ne sont pas à mon goût.
