Whisky Reviews for Bunnahabhain 2001 JB

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 78.25 points

  1. Volanne scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    A delicate malt that reminds me of some production from the Orcades or Northern Territories for its honeyed and delicately smoky character. Such a shame that the mouth turns out to be a bit weak...

    • Nose
      Starts on discreet phenols associated at first with cooked veggies (boiled cabbage?), and then with crystalized fruits (candied angelica and tangerine). Becomes really interesting now with subtle notes of bergamot and chamomile. And perhaps just a dash of peach juice and white chocolate.
    • Taste
      Smooth and silky. A bit too smooth, actually. Lacks a bit of punch (43%?), but not of flavours. Diluted honey. Acacia flower beignets. Lemon drops. And a light haze of cold smoke in the background.
    • Finish
      Collapses before long. Is an excessive dilution to be blamed?

  2. MaltMartin scored this whisky 68 points Connoisseur

    Not my cup of tea. Very unbalanced whisky. Goes to nowhere.
    • Nose
      Hmm, strange nose, light, malty, cereal grains, not very inviting.
    • Taste
      Nutty, a little spicy, lots of bitterness.
    • Finish
      Short and spicy.
