  1. Baanaanaabob scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    MAlty and very enjoyable not outstanding

  2. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Massive whisky, lots of wood, sweet and heavy, but very tasty and great, just by the subtle maritime touch and a hint of peat. Beautiful Bunnahabhain.
    • Nose
      Very sweet and spicy, almost massive aroma density. Not overly complex, but wood, spices and a subtle maritime smokiness go well together, despite the syrupy sweetness not taped.
    • Taste
      Heavy, sweet, lots of wood, but not particularly harsh. Delicious.
    • Finish
      A subtle peat note accompanies the bittersweet heavy wood notes. Towards the end, it gets almost a bit too old.

  5. wisekycourse scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    a bunna full of scents on fruits and nuts, with sweet spices, dry grass, some moss, a little mold, the mouth is thinner, more vanilla, woody, there is a back of lemon a little acid and citrus a little macerated.
    the finish is average on the same scents with wood and humus.

    no peat, but a salty side, yellow fruits in a hurry, a little cooked, a pack of dried herbs and a little lemon!

  7. megabreit scored this whisky 86 points Expert Junior

    Wet leaves in the nose and a fruity note.
    Malty sweetness with hints of ripe cherries.
    In the finish, a wave of vanilla mixes into the fruitiness.

  8. Bishlouk scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    The first sniffing and the first sip are really annoying, then we get used to it and everything is bearable, even almost pleasant.
    • Nose
      Woody lemon and wax, it attacks a little.
    • Taste
      Slight bitterness, a pinch of salt, citrus.
    • Finish
      Acid and bitter finish on lemon and white grapefruit.

  9. Toffie76 scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    A little water suits him, as well as a long aeration. Quite difficult to access, but endearing. Challenging!
    • Nose
      floral, fruity, pear apple, white pepper, cut grass
      it smells of undergrowth, a lot of yeast, wet wood. Clove, laurel.
    • Taste
      Complex, very dry. We have the sensation of a total absence of sugar. Spicy attack, astringent, woody. Dusty? Rock, rocky.
    • Finish
      Prolonged bitterness. A big yeast sensation.

  10. Jeep51 scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    Close to Tomatin Chester but a bit more complex.
    • Nose
      Very vegetal. Thyme
    • Taste
      Bitterness. Aromatic herbs. Slightly iodized. Bitter orange.
    • Finish
      Average length but final a little too hot / alcoholic.
