    Please contact me (maybe you have to make a friendship request).
    Please take a look to my open bottles.

    I recently tried this one and Bunna XVIII again after a few years, and was surprised. I'd always held the 18yo as the better one, but this time it felt more prominently boozy than before, while the XXV really won me over with its excellent body and refined aftertaste. A bit too pricy for me to purchase a whole bottle, but a very good whisky nonetheless.

    Not ultra-complex, but what a pleasure! Enthusiasm 4/5 Whisky n ° 1359
    • Nose
      Deep wooded, more and more fruity and chocolatey. Juicy fasts. Warm, on the nutty. A touch of tangerine. Fade and very nice.
    • Taste
      Moderate spices, honey. Juicy in the mouth. He is greedy and well corpulent. Each sip is easier than the previous one.
    • Finish
      Woody, dries slightly, while keeping its sweetness.

  4. Claudio + Cats scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    As usual, the Bunnahabhain are pretty fine. But at this 25er I was rather disappointed. The XVIII I liked better. But what others are out there, 20 different scents, is amazing. They have to be great experts. That no one has written lizard tail in vanilla pudding, is a miracle.
    on Neudeutsch: The pudding schmekke wi nutti tutti frutti or something. Is a blatant man. The 18s blatantly better.

    A bit humble for this big 25yo - probably the balance and smoothness are the biggest points.
    • Nose
      Ripe bananas, pineapples, spicy, dry oak wood, white pepper
    • Taste
      Very oily, smooth and liquorice, good sweetness balanced with oak wood, little salty, nutty, toffee, citrus fruits, apricots
    • Finish
      Medium long, some fruitiness is coming up

    http://kaypingers-whiskyblog.de/frontend/fullarticle.php?id=178 Color: light gold
    Nose: Overall, quite thin with little "biting" spiciness. Chocolate, leather, delicate tobacco notes, vanilla, caramel waffles and a hint of peat with a dull barrel tone. Absolutely straightforward and kept clean.
    Taste: Thin and soft starting with wood, caramel, oranges, slightly salty spice and fresh herbs. Becoming and becoming up to the finish emerging, slightly creamy Schokonoten.
    Finish: Medium length - fresh and delicately spicy with fruity hints of apples, oranges, vanilla, nut oil and herbal essences.
    86 points (nose: 88 / taste: 86 / finish: 85)

  9. Mr.Sandwich scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Chocolates made of dark chocolate filled with Islay Malt. A dry sherry sweet, a little citrus, some roasted coffee and a saltiness.
    • Taste
      Starts creamy, salty and continues with iodine, sherry, beautiful wood notes and coastal flavors. The whole thing very mild, balanced and complex.
    • Finish
      Long and dry with sherry wood aromas and a slight bitterness.

    Nose: rasp vanilla ice cream, breakfast cereal with raisins, coconut nut. Grassy after a while. Palate: Mouth Full Frame and malty with a seasoning mix. Finish: wood, dry, with a complex of high-quality dark chocolate bitterness.
