  1. Hector_Savage scored this whisky 92 points Expert Junior

    • Nose
      91 91
      Cherries, rather sour cherries, relatively much oak and menthol.
      Spices like cloves and cinnamon are also at the start, but more in the background.
      This heavy, sherry-heavy dry nose just makes this bunna so good
    • Taste
      92 92
      Dry, acid and then immediately the old sherry leg with lots of sweet dried fruit and spices, dates, plums, etc., it hits quite well.
      Dark chocolate and a distinct leather note is also present
      From the clear menthol from the nose nothing is felt here.
    • Finish
      92 92
      Very long and dry, again some acid but not meant negative.
      The oak sticks for a long time ... very very cool

    Blindtasting at Voss
    • Nose
      91 91
      Very special, a musty, exciting, sulphurous couvreur note, really exciting and cool, only barely 50%, metallic, moss, swampy mud, type on a laddie with about 25 years. Water makes it a little more fruity, desk paper.
    • Taste
      92 92
      Oh, it's mega, it stays super long and develops, with water it becomes a little more pleasing, but this doesn't have to be the case here. Old wood, overripe dark fruit, the intensity reminds me of the experience with a Bowmore from the Vintners triology.

      Madness, mega malt

    Bunnahabhain, as he should be: dirty, not adapted and not immediately accessible, but dusty. You first have to blow away the dust to see the shine. And very sherrylastig, heavy and ripe. A characterful whisky.
    • Nose
      Dirty sherry, plums, some tobacco, cherries, chocolate, motor oil, red meat, mushrooms and earth
    • Taste
      Creamy medium body, hot on the tongue, raisins, beef broth, dark cherries, a hint of sulfur, dark chocolate, pleasant but distinct bitterness, spicy oak
    • Finish
      Earthy warm finish, oak, but hardly bitter, the memory of the cherries and the chocolate, again a little sulfur, long and dry towards the end

    http://www.weinkenner.de/2013/zwei-bunnahabhain-aus-dem-jahr-1990-22yo-golden-cask-cm178-vs-21yo-bunnys-sister-27167/ Color: Deep Gold / Amber
    Nose: Creamy Likoer, slightly rounder, more tobacco, smoky, a lot of white chocolate, raisins, caramel and a little vanilla. Then a mélange of delicate orange and Mon Cherie pralines
    Taste: Balanced and creamy, lots of sherry, chocolate, raisins and tobacco. Strongly salty with delicate smoky notes of wood as well as cocoa aromas and nuances.
    Finish: Long, dry-spicy, but still complex with oily mouthfeel. The woody notes are more pronounced and remain in the dry finish for a long time.
    90 points (nose: 90 / taste: 90 / finish: 89)

    • Nose
      First of: thick liquor, wet/juicy rasisins, sherry, oak, red wine tannins, concrete & a faint tar note. (88)
      A bit later: still dominated by raisins, oak & red wine/grape tannins, also some red apples & some vanilla & caramel, also a nice waxern & smokey note underneath (extinguished candle ?), (90)
    • Taste
      oily, juicy, sherry influence with some nice raisins & dried plums, a brief dry, bitter & spicy attach (85)
    • Finish
      fading out with a few bitter echoes, but more raisins & dried plums come up, also some cherries, a sprinkle of cinnamon, (88)
