Whisky Reviews for Bunnahabhain 1987 BR

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.25 points

  1. Monsieur Dram scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    This Bunnahabhain Berry Bros is pretty strange. On the one hand, a fruit / acid side very present, but, on the other hand, a peat fat, little smoke and austere. An amazing blend that is worth the detour, but has nothing to pull us to the high spheres of taste pleasure.
    • Nose
      at first sight discreet enough, with sweet scents of pastry: almond (frangipane), vanilla, orange blossom, apple, pear and cereals a little grilled, as if there was a little peat in this Bunnahabhain ... With the 'opening, this smoke dissipates and the acid side takes up more space, with orange and lemon. While remaining in the gourmet field, honey comes to give binder to all its flavors. Damn well.
    • Taste
      in the lineage of the nose. All these elements give a nice structure to this whisky, the white fruits are more prominent (it seems to bite in a barely ripe apple, well acid) and then there is a little vegetal side, certainly brought by the peat, which gives a little consistency, but also bitterness. The whole is a little creamy / fat and above all, quite original.
    • Finish
      long, fruity and fat, with a vegetal aspect quite present, leaving behind a very slight bitterness.

  2. WhiskyLovingPianist did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    N: Orange, lemon and vanillas
    T: Fruity citrus, as like the nose
    F: Very much like Glenlivet Nadurra, orange Lucozade fruits
    C: Starburst deliciousness although not very ‘Bunnary’.
