Whisky Reviews for Bunnahabhain 1988 SV

5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.87 points

  1. MrRancho scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Very good Bunna! Good mix between sherry, wood and smoke!
    • Nose
      Dried fruits, sultanas, cocoa, sea air, salt, lemon, some ashtray, against later also kelp, grass, soil.
    • Taste
      Grape juice, wood, some ashtray, salt.
    • Finish
      Relativ lang, holzig, rauchig.

  2. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Nose: dark sherry, sweet, slightly "dirty" notes, distinct oak notes. Mouth: strong, oak, peat, salt, ash, rather tart than sweet. The nose pretends to be something.
    Finish: dry oak, peat, ash, Tabal, leather, bitter-sweet, some menthol. An extraordinary drop

  3. Gilles_V scored this whisky 93 points Member Senior

    A nose close to its neighbor opposite (Isle of Jura) interesting but not extraordinary. A body and a final which astonish by their power: close to the neighbors of the South of the island. A whisky that hides his game well, with a nose with finesse but a body while muscle. Excellent.
    • Nose
      In the order of appearance: 1. sherry 2. trace of iodine 3. banana and cocoa
    • Taste
      salt, peat quite present, strength and character
    • Finish
      persistent final

  4. Murxus scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    After more than half a year from bottle opening and half the bottle emptying, now finally I can fully comprehend and confirm the notes of Marko - err except for the shisha tabac ;-)
    Maybe the strong sulfuric note caused some irritation to me, maybe  a bigger glas like the now used Spiegelau premium snifter and the adequate amount of water was beneficial.
    88/89 pts.

  5. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Prima whisky, exactly what I expected at distillery / age / cask / starch, for refill the sherry influence is even stronger than I would have thought.
    • Nose
      dark chocolate, blackcurrant juice, but too much volts, that needs some water ... chocolate, cherries, peach compote, shisha tobacco ... a breeze cowshed
    • Taste
      dark chocolate, a dry-smoky note, cough syrup, some blackcurrant / blackberry (but not fresh, goes more in the-Likör-direction), tobacco
    • Finish
      long, bittersweet, slightly ashen, pepper
