Whisky Reviews for Bunnahabhain 1989 DR

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.57 points

  1. Kaleva scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    Unexpectedly poor whisky, which age you will surely underestimate. The nose is actually quite promising but rather ordinary for bourbon maturation. The taste is kind of “loose”, it lacks balance quite much. 22 years? Noway, 12-15 would be my best estimate. Probably just a bad cask.
    • Nose
      Very light smoke, yellow mashed apples, vanilla, sweet grapefruit, notes of nutmeg, fruit acid drops
    • Taste
      Slightly sweet, minerally and salty notes (maybe like Vichy water), slightly rubbery and spicy (white pepper and ginger), oak, berry jam, sour-bitter notes (grapefruit)
    • Finish
      Medium-long, mouth-watering, malty, slightly oaky, salty notes

  2. Ras Mazunga scored this whisky 87 points Super Administrator

    Bourbonny and fruity whisky. Some bananas pears and apples. Perfect dram to start the evening. Well matured.

  3. spatti did not rate this whisky Member Senior

    • Nose
      subdued smoke, cereals, delicate sweet with slight spicy herbal tones. After a while, the smoke will turn slightly ashy. Later, there is also a restrained red fruit tone
    • Taste
      Grain, spicy, rather light, delicate light wood, smoke subtle
    • Finish
      Here the smoke comes stronger and stays on the palate for a long time
