Whisky Reviews for Bunnahabhain 2003 SV

5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.52 points

  1. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Superbly rich, full. The imposing vanilla and caramel make me think of a bourbon cask first. Toffee to death, peppery malt, woody, malt syrup. Very intense, it remains nonetheless drinkable at 59.1%. Powerful, creamy, mellow. Well spiced.I did not even bother to add water for once. Much in the mouth. Final round.

    Enthusiasm 4/5

    Nose:
    Rich, dark notes of coffee and leather. Hint of menthol too! Quite interesting. There is also a savory note in here. With water it opens up more, it is still full and dark, but with more sherry notes.

    Taste:
    Full on. This one needs water though. It is very on the Oloroso side of the sherry spectrum, so the savory and unami is clear here. There is also a little sour note in the background. With water you get more sherry notes, but also camphor and mint.

    Body:
    Full and round (after adding water)

    Finish:
    Medium-long length. There is a bit of sour here, clear sherry notes and it fades away with some wood influence. With water it gets less rough, more mild sherry and wood.

    Price:
    Don't know this was a given sample

    Comments:
    Don't be shy with water on this one. I gave it 8ml on a 30ml pour.

    Everything is good about it.
    There is but one thing I dislike and it is the cork that crumbles into the whisky when opening and closing the bottle.
