Whisky Reviews for Bunnahabhain 1978 DL

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.25 points

  1. Andytka3 scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Nose:- Very intense fragrant of salted plum, prunes. Savoury and rich with notes of herbal.

    Palate:- Juicy, sweet and mouth watering with sweet spices, cloves. Spicy and well mouth coating, nerves wakening. Finish:- Jammy, creamy. Pleasantly warm from throat down to chest. You
    can almost hear the wave and smell the sea breeze. LOL, ya, I am
    exaggerated ~, but you don't get to drink 33YO everyday right.

    — at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.
