  1. Kantenmechaniker scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Well done, meets expectations quite well, young maritime smokers.
    • Nose
      Pleasant maritime smoke suits you, with a light fruity sweetness, salt, smoked fish, a little citrus, a little pepper, a little Bircher muesli, a pinch of cinnamon, the youth flashes from time to time
    • Taste
      sweet, vanilla, cinnamon, spicy smoke, here too salt, maritime, becoming drier, a hint of banana, also quite creamy, the mouthfeel changes from watery at first to more substance and creamy
    • Finish
      again the citrus notes from the nose, more towards the lime and dry, slightly nutty, the smoke remains ashy on the palate with a little salt, green apple appears briefly

  8. AdamsB scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    Mòine (from the Gaelic "peat"). Bunnahabhain Moine is a marriage of distillates aged in sherry, bourbon and red wine casks.
    • Nose
      Smoke, sea wind, iodine, apples, lemon peel, burnt rubber
    • Taste
      Peat, walnut, grapefruit, lemon peel, salt, and hay
    • Finish
      Smoke, pepper, licorice, hospital

  9. Dionysus scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    A typical Bunnah, the very long finish makes it a little special.

    Pale yellow, peated Bunna. I don't know what to think about it. I bought two bottles a few years ago because I thought they were rare - at Gall. Well, then I was young and happy. I opened one to be able to buy a Ferrari from another, smart investor like me.
    He's hot. Solid smoke but also chewing gum mint, grassy and jumpy. The honesty area tells me that this is bottle two; bottle one I sold after one dram, too much peat, then, for me. I knew a lot. And now I know nothing. There is some English licorice in it, the peppermint remains, a nice permanent smoke flavor hangs around it without becoming annoying. I like the ABV excellent, just right. The aftertaste is short and sharp, some salt and sea and then gone. The wind blows, so to speak. Great dram, great price, long story, short conclusion. 83 points.

  13. schengel10 scored this whisky 79 points Connoisseur

  15. Punktar scored this whisky 77 points Connoisseur

    Starts well, but has very little substance. If you only want smoke without annoying complexity, this is the right place.
    • Nose
      85 85
      Smoke. Strong and spicy. Some ashes or older cold smoke. Behind it a hint of red fruits and raisins. Maritime background note.
    • Taste
      75 75
      Immediately absorbs the tongue with creamy smoke. Some alcohol on the palate. The fruits are gone. The maritime is still latent. Had hoped for something more.
    • Finish
      70 70
      Short, dominated by cold smoke. Something salty.

  16. Oldpultnie scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    2nd review with little change in rating.
    • Nose
      85 85
      More peatiness than I remember from before. Iodine and camphor is still the same but not disturbing at all.
    • Taste
      86 86
      More band aid upfront in taste with a lot of spices - ginger, pepper and nutmeg - Also a very sweet touch from honey (almost sugar) and soft fruit.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Medium finish, peat, sweet and spicy.

  17. LiquidThoughts scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    Already tasty and typical Bunna, but has very typical notes and 75% herbs, plus a little cheap aftertaste with alcohol despite only 46%
    • Nose
      Ginger, white pepper, camphor, lighter notes rather with a few flowers, herbal honey brighter with lavender and rosemary, salt and leaves, light toffee
    • Taste
      Light herbal honey everywhere, plenty of camphor, oregano, ginger, cardamom, nutmeg, white pepper, clove, thyme, rosemary, dry autumn leaves, cocoa powder, dark chocolate, black bread, sourdough, some salt
    • Finish
      Herbal honey, tannins, old curtains, salt, dark chocolate, black bread, medium-long

  19. Totoro scored this whisky 79 points Connoisseur

    79 points. Not bad, but too young. In the same price range (sometimes even a bit cheaper), I'd always prefer a Benriach 10-year-old Curiositas - a properly aged smoker from quality casks. 

  20. ctu scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    It's not the most complex Bunna but an excellent price / value ratio.
    • Nose
      Sweet peat and smoke, camphor, seaweed, iodine, pepper and ginger. Acetone.
    • Taste
      Creamy. Pepper, peat and smoke, camphor and menthol, pear.
    • Finish
      Medium length, sweet, smoky and fruity.

  21. Dre73 scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    Pretty nice balance between (moderate) peat and yet some fruitiness.
    Initially somewhat peppery.
    Reasonable finish.

  23. Oldpultnie scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Hard to find better for this price. (40€)
    • Nose
      Refreshing peaty smoke with fruity undertones. Seabreeze and Iodine.
    • Taste
      Pepper up front and a little cream on the sides. More smoke and peat with a few wood tones. Light medicinal but not disturbing at all.
    • Finish
      Long smoky finish. Sweet and sour.

  28. peatbogger scored this whisky 86 points Specialist

    a very pleasant Bunna, not to complex to understand, yet not to simple to like.

    as I understand only available in Sweden, and at a bargain price
    • Nose
      peat, soot, seabreeze, rubber,

      sweet fruity undertones (apples and pears)

      inhale deeply and the fruityness becomes a bit peppery
    • Taste
      smoke, the fruitiness on the nose is quite easy to recognise as pear in the taste, soft pepper
    • Finish
      initialy a lot of smoke and licorise

      gradually going into very sweet pear that last surprisingly long

  29. croz scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Good dram with a good balance.

    Probably one of the most affordable Bunnahabhain I have ever come across.
    • Nose
      Ginger, peat and pear
    • Taste
      First some sweetness then ashes, liquorice and sea salt 
    • Finish
      A bit rough with smoke/peat, saltiness and pepper
