Whisky Reviews for Bunnahabhain 1989 CC

5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.00 points

  1. LDB scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Pretty interesting, the Bourboncask influence and the Bunnahabhain distillate meet here in a special way in perfect drinking strength. Wonderfully ripe without bitter notes, but more spice than fruit, even a bit herbaceous, very slightly smoky Highland Park note he has.

      Concentrated scent of ripe, slightly shriveled apples, even pommeau notes, as well as Breton, lightly salted pastries, almonds. Spicy hints of an old waffle iron, the sort that you still have to hold over the fire.

      Slightly oily, almond and lemon cake, a springbank undertone ensures farm feeling :)
    • Finish

      Starting from a rather robust citrus fruit, the whole thing gradually turns into delicately smoked wood.
