  5. 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.

  6. 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.

      long

  8. Totoro scored this whisky 79 points Expert Senior

    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. 

  9. 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.

  10. Dre73 scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

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