Whisky Reviews for Bunnahabhain 1991 Wy

- A very nice example of a moderately pleated, well-aged Bunnahabhain. Very nice value by Wemyss. On par in terms of quality with the Bunnahabhain 18 year old distillery bottling, though stylistically different.
- Tasted blind during the Dutch BTC 2016. Sample #16. Never rated it during that time for some reason, although I didn't like it that much back then. I can really appreciate it now, but maybe the air in the sample bottle did some work. We'll never know :)
Oranges, mandarin, mango, yellow and green apples, honey, hay, oak, leather, almond,
Oily, thick, honey, hay, leather, some yellow apples, almond, some mandarins and oranges
Not very long, not bitter, drying at the end. The oily, thick taste doesn't remain on the tongue. the fruits die off quite quickly. Some faint leather and hay notes is the last you'll get from this.
- A quite unclean spirit,m but it's got this old touch that gives it something extra,
Apple, almond, peat, cardboard, liquorice and a dirty touch. Later a little peach. A drop of water releases some honey and citrus.
Apple, leather, chestnut, peat, salty liquorice and leather
Almond, salt, peat and chestnut.
- "Bunnahabhain 1991 ‘A thread of smoke’ (46%, Wemyss Malts 2014, hogshead, 302 btl.)
Nose: rather excellent, with Bunnahabhains typical honeyed / fruity profile. Honeydew melon, peaches, redcurrant, yellow apples. Plenty of sweet honey. Also fresh almonds and hints of mint. After a while it displays subtle grassy notes and soft coastal notes. Maybe some damp earth. A nice balance of roundness and sharper notes. Mouth: citrusy, a little sharper now, with more zesty notes and some smoky notes indeed. Grapefruit, sweet lemon juice, a little salty liquorice and grasses. Pears in the background. Green tea and spices. Finish: long, grassy, with some salty notes and a balanced herbal bitterness.
A beautiful all-round Bunnahabhain, with fruity notes, coastal notes and traces of smoke. Around € 100. Should arrive in stores soon.
