Whisky Reviews for Bunnahabhain 1991 CWC

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.86 points

  1. Mannheimer scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    Very untypical Bunna, rich, intense with lots of character, wax very present in the mouth. As a big Clynelish fan I'm a bit confused here but I like this malt extremely well.
    • Nose
      Lots of fruit with light sea breeze, maritime character with beeswax appeal. Alcohol super well integrated, adequate oak tones with a lot of dates, caramelized pears. Not extremely complex, rather on the dry side, yet very rich and intense.
    • Taste
      Now age speaks, much beeswax, very "Clynelish-like" with fruitiness pushed into the background. If dry on the tongue, it then develop fruit compote flavors (Mirabelle, Clementine). A lot of Fasscharakter then oak, furniture polish, slightly spicy, white pepper.
    • Finish
      Medium long with oak, wax, dry with some citrus fruits.

  2. WantsWhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    This whiksy comes from barrel number 5430, which is a 2nd refill sherry butt. It was distilled on the 25th of November 1991 and it gave 257 bottles. From Divid Stirks own mouth came that this is 22 years old and not 23.
