  1. Falnor scored this whisky 79 points Connoisseur

    Tasted this at VanZuylen. A nice and young smoky bunna.

  2. Koalafant scored this whisky 78 points Expert Senior

    No miracle of complexity, but for friends of medical smoke quite worthwhile. (78/100)
    • Nose
      The alcohol makes a lot of pressure! Phenolisch-minty notes paired with honey and hay
    • Taste
      Sweetish smoke spreads in the mouth. Again, ethereal notes in alcohol ... rather one-dimensional
    • Finish
      Long and smoky

    Colour:

    White wine.

    Smell:

    A fresh, slightly sour, young but balanced whisky with aromas of peat, smoke, iodine, grass, hay, brine, honey, lemon zest, vanilla, mineral tones (flint), a hint to leather, faint tobacco, malt, cereals, grapes, old rope and railway sleepers.

    Taste:

    A powerful, sweet, spicy and herbal whisky with aromas of anise, peat, smoke, mineral tones, tar, railway sleepers, brine, acacia honey, icing sugar, pepper, a hint to oak, laurel, wine, grains, green tea, a hint to leather, ash and earthy tones

    Finish:

    A medium long en drying finish with aromas of pepper, smoke, peat, medicinal, honey, soft bitter tannins and oak. The smokiness lingers for quite some time.

    Conclusion:

    There is nothing to complain when you have a Bunna in your glass. This is an uncomplicated easy drinker. Some may argue it’s a bit one-dimensional and lacks complexity. But for a young Bunna it well balanced and has no rough edges. But as you probably know I’m a Bunna enthusiast, so my opinion might be a bit biased.

    Marks:

    8.2/10

  4. Implar scored this whisky 83 points Expert Junior

    It's a well made, young Islay malt. A good one if you want an easy drinker, but it lacks complexity. Still, it's well made and there aren't too many sharp edges.http://whiskyinformer.com/home/bunnahabhain-2007-berry-bros
    • Nose
      This one is clearly one of the more peated Bunna's. The peat smoke dominates the notes, along with some iodine and salt. Some vanilla sweetness and lemon zest can also be found.
    • Taste
      A surprisingly soft arrival, considering the ABV and it's age. Barbecue smoke, some vanilla and honey in there as well but the smoke dominates.
    • Finish
      Again, the smoke dominates. Some bitter oak shows up as well and a slight metallic note at the end. Medium-long finish.

  5. ragingbull scored this whisky 84 points Member Senior

    Undiluted, the alcohol storms forward, but is not brittle. This is followed by heavy smoke, a good portion of salt and iodine plus some soil and ash. A certain sweetness (vanilla?) Is present. He gets a bit bitter at the back.

    A few years more would have done him good.
