  1. Ruud6421 scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    It’s a
    real shame. This is a whisky with a lot of potential. It’s got the old, mature
    aromas, perfect balance and complexity, but it lacks everybit of power and
    body. Could have been a stunner (in certain ways it still is), but the
    subtleness makes it a forgettable dram.
    • Nose
      Very
      recognizable ‘68 Bunnahabhain. Overripe bananas, wax, powdered sugar. Lots of
      other tropical fruit in there as well. Somewhat malty and a bit dusty. Very
      refined and subtle. An ‘old’ nose in every sense.
    • Taste
      Strawberries,
      lovely ripe bananas and wax again. Beautiful flavours, but unfortunately the
      mouthfeel is a bit thin. It’s watery even.
    • Finish
      Just
      after the sip is swallowed the whisky revives. Nice old wooden flavours, dusty
      and malty. Again very waxy. The finish is not that long, turns into water quite
      quickly.

  2. The Macallan scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    A great Bunna in the line-up from a Bunnahabhain tasting
    • Nose
      Fruity start, mild sherry notes, smell of old warehouses, cacao and later some tropical fruit
    • Taste
      Gentle, some soft sherry notes, fruity as in mango or passion fruit
    • Finish
      Lovely spicyness, briny a layer of fruit and warming

  10. Mr.Sandwich did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Glenfahrn Tasting Notes:

    Nose: old sweet fruit, quince, caramel, wild honey, some beeswax, lime, fresh cut grass, when open longer it becomes more fruity ...

    Taste: elegantly soft and smooth again come old fruit, caramel, vanilla, some honey with a slightly floral character, lemon zest surrounded by a very pleasant, slightly herbaceous fruit sweetness.

    Finish: very pleasant and long though only around 41%. It reveals also very fine the long storage in the barrel, which share the tanninaromes herb-dry-sweet. A wonderful whisky to stay! No peat or smoke bomb for a whisky that likes to "get lost" in the glasses of the Highlander friends ...
