Whisky Reviews for Bunnahabhain 2003 vW

11 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.26 points

  1. keizerjos scored this whisky 88 points Expert Junior

    Golden yellow orange. Fragrance spicy, smooth, interesting and varied. Tastes very good, subtle and spicy, soft sweet in the background. Orange, chocolate - this time milk, not pure. Little nuts, almond - without the bitterness. After a Mortlach of 52%, 23 years and 160 euros, this remains fine. Creamy vanilla in the finish finishes it off. I think the top stuff is that Bunna's 12YO.

  3. Defeatless scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Nose:
    Malty, touch of salt and a hint of the sherry in the background. This is a side of Bunna which we don't see often. There is some sweetness in the background, but the maltyness is on top of it.

    Taste:
    A tad bitter arrival. Not much sweetness. There is a malt flavor with some sherry sweetness. A little touch of seaweed. Becomes a bit tannic in the end.

    Body:
    Medium a bit oily, but not much.

    Finish:
    Medium length. You get a but of sweetness here. Some wood notes, and a vague hint of sherry.

    Price:
    If found under €50,- I should buy it.

    Presentation:
    Don't know this was a sample.

    Comments:
    A little shy, but not bad. A side of bunna which you don't get often. Interesting though. Strange this was a first fill sherry.....
