    Review from Ralfy:


  4. WhiskyLovingPianist did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    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+

  5. Timo scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    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.
    • Nose
      slightly pungent, grassy, ​​flowery, iodine, woody, smoke, peat
    • Taste
      light almond, peat, smoke, round, malty, spicy
    • Finish
      long finish, dry, pleasant, spicy, oily, smoky

  6. Ralph Hiltrup did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    "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."
