Whisky Reviews for Bunnahabhain 1997 MoS

15 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.93 points

  1. Whisky Hamster scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    A bold and flavor-heavy malt bringing you lots of fun. Works very well as a winter/christmas malt. Not a king of elegance but balances out all its available parts very well.

  2. Issie did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    • Nose
      warm smoke, pine needles, herb candy, honey, grasses, dried fruits, nuts,
    • Taste
      Herbs, minimal honey, grasses, smoke, ash, lemon, wood

  3. Monte Gehro scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Fine rather dry smoke, hints of a smokehouse, in puffs clearly alcohol, citrus notes towards orange
    • Taste
      Strong, almost sharp onset, tart fruits (blood orange or similar), medium-sized camp fire smoke, barely sweet fruit flavors
    • Finish
      Quite long, the smoke combines with a still pleasant draft and pepper to an intense finish

  4. ragingbull scored this whisky 87 points Member Senior

    Peppery, ginger, blood orange, espresso, spicy oak, phenolic smoke, tart fruits, miss something the maritime character. All in all, a solid Bunna.

  6. Koalafant scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    Balanced balance between smoke and sherry, alcohol well integrated.
    92/100
    • Nose
      Pale phenolic smoke and sherry fruits (orange, bacon-wrapped figs and dates) with a hint of ethereal freshness.
    • Taste
      Sweet-smoky, similar to a barbecue fire, with noticeable alcohol. Muscat.
    • Finish
      Long and round with subtle bitterness

  7. Tommyknocker scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Very cool as expected, but rather one to drink pure, I think he succeeded, but I have expected a bad peat bomb. Very balanced as always with MoS.
    • Nose
      Pur: It dominates immediately the Bunnahabhaintypische, beautiful dirty Sherrynote with a lot of maritime influence. Then comes slowly but vigorously the fine peat behind, not so hard as expected. Cherry, raspberry and some herbs. With water: Now lighter fruit, even less smoke, comes not so great.
    • Taste
      Pure: Slightly sharp onset, immediately sweet, pleasant peat with pickled cherries, here the smoke is still noticeable, but not dominant. Dark chocolate and some salt. Very full and delicious! With water: the sharpness is completely gone, now lighter fruit, some tea aroma, even the peat is not so dominant, now looks younger. Does not have to be.
    • Finish
      long, dry, oak, not disturbing.

  8. Kimba scored this whisky 92 points Expert Junior

    easily jumped over the 90
    • Nose
      Very nice nose with smoke, sherry, sea air, algae, sweet and everything I like :)
    • Taste
      Wow ... salt, iodine, sherry, smoke, yummy, sweet, raisins, salt. Everything delicious
    • Finish
      Delicious salt and sherry ... TOP

  9. Rom did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    Peat well present on the nose with dried fruits, iodine and hay. Chocolate attack, aqueous texture, good peat but too bitter end of mouth. Long final.
