Whisky Reviews for Bunnahabhain Darach Ùr
13 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 83.78 points
- It goes against my taste, this oriental, but also with beautiful fruit and almost perfumed nose, yummy.
Beautiful nose, dried apricots, peaches as well, to Mediterranean herbs such as lavender, rosemary, thyme, camphor, nutmeg, saffron, licorice, has almost something perfumed with deeper inhalation, cedar, red apple, brown sugar
Incense sticks, peaches dried with herbs, great herbal honey, Mediterranean, lavender, rosemary, ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon, nuts, leather, raisins, yellow plums, cherries, Christstollen, grapefruit peel, licorice
Camphor, yellow plums, tannins, cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, lavender, medium-long, dry-herbaceous
Pleasantly fruity and spicy. Oranges. Citrus fruits. Peaches. A pinch of freshly ground pepper. Caramel. Again and again alcohol notes flash up, which could close on young barrels. At the same time, the malt has matured due to a large portion of oak bitterness. This interplay, these corners and edges make the whisky interesting.
Sweet start with a lot of spice. Honey. Caramel. Pepper. Ginger. Peaches. Oak.
Medium. Peaches. A lot of oak flavor, but also a decent alcohol sting. The finish is unfortunately a bit disappointing compared to the nose and the taste.
- blind tasting
- A friend of mine wrote 'Barad Dur' on the sample bottle he sent me. Does anyone have the One Ring and a map to Mount Doom? Because I want to bring this new wood tower down.
- A bit disappointed, I've come to hold Bunnahabhain to a very high standard and this just didn't live up to it. I found the palate and finish to be very flat.
There was a bit of a young spirit bite at first but I just let it sit and after about 10 min it calmed down. Big rich wood up front, definitely some older whisky in here too. Creme brulee. Toffee. Orange peel. Dark chocolate. Vanilla essence (the bottled stuff not pods). Sultanas. Stewed pears. Gingerbread. Cinnamon sticks.
Wood. More wood. Woodspice. Citrus juice. Liquorice. Cinnamon. Schweppes Bitter Lemon. Some aged rum notes. Toast.
Medium-long. Bitter citrus. Dry wood. Bit of honey and more woodspice
- very interesting (in a good way), this sweet peach is amazing, dangerously tasty, no wonder it is in a 1l bottle
no smoke, but again typically "dirty"; that's what I call this note, which I always have with Bunnahabhain, and which inspires me so much at the moment. Lots of vanilla and a lot of toffee, a little bourbon-like, distant sea, brown caramel, nuts
Nut chocolate, sweet yellow peach, honey and nuts again
