- Review from Ralfy:
- N: Fruity mature whisky with a touch of fusty peatiness. Bourbon summer fruits dominate lead by potent ripe apples and light straw coupled with oily, peaty malt. Fantastic thick potent nose.
T: Opens with taut apple skin and satsumas with rich malty/spirity sweetness pouring through. Fruity, fluffy, waxy, oily maltiness develops. Then theres more waxy/malty/oily development.
F: Taut apple skin returns - fresh and fruity to the last with malt=oak dancing alongside.
C: A very good Bunna, A single cask 20yo for £77 [Jan ’15] proves there’s still value and provenance to be had from the independents in an age of heavily marketed and over-inflated official bottlings.
Scores a B+
- Bunnahabhain is probably the most underrated whisky in Islay malts. This distillery produces exceptional malts whose appreciation is usually neglected. A very fine Islay malt.

- "The enchanting nose gives fruit notes with a
little marzipan, some jute cloth and spice. The palate is layered, rich
with building sooty intensity as the flavours displayed on the nose
develop. This is beautifully intense with a classy lingering finish."
