    The nose is awesome, the rest is not behind
    • Nose
      fresh in the glass comes pineapple, banana, sherry, fruit cocktail, light vanilla, strawberries, after a while in the glass it becomes saltier and chocolatier and through the alcohol comes the association of rum raisins.
    • Taste
      peppery, sweet, with lots of power. slightly creamy, gets a bit bitter back
    • Finish
      Laaaang with neat pepper and oak With water even more spice and pepper and the sweetness disappears almost completely

  2. gallfux did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Somehow not a bad malt. I don't really get warm with him. The fruits seem artificial to me, which I don't like.
    Otherwise very good for the age.

    Even if the subtle bitterness in the Nosing bothers me a bit, this bunnahabhain presents itself as a classic and for its age quite complex and harmonious first-fill sherry malt with a good portion of oak and dried fruits.
    • Nose
      Classic sherry notes of dry raisins, candied apricots, Brazil nuts and spicy oak to light chocolate dominate the first impression, followed closely by the pleasant smell of coffee roasting, leather and some sweet malt. In the background, with time but also becoming stronger, a certain bitterness, which reminds me most of Orangeat or English wine gum and not quite my personal taste.
    • Taste
      The spicy-chocolate oak and a complex fruitiness (grapes, apricots, quince marmalade) come in the entrance to wonderful advantage. But the other flavors of the Nosing such as the nuts and leather and Kaffeeröstaromen are wonderfully integrated.

    Really good sherry whisky but not heavy, rather light and creamy.

    After the bottle was open for many months the rating from the second tasting is quit elower because of the leathery finish, almost sweaty and kind of sulphury - too bad
    • Nose
      91 91
      Peach, vanilla, bananas, creme brulee - much more vanilla than I remembered
    • Taste
      89 89
      Punchy, oily, creamy, fruity, bananas, peaches and vanilla again, sherry wood, and hints of leather and boots
    • Finish
      88 88
      Medium long, warm, still fruity but also more leather and boots

    The second tasting not even so good. Too bitter, too much acid ...

  10. Kaltduscher scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      At first fruity and fresh. Citrus fruits. Oranges. Pineapple. Malt. Nuts. After a while, the barrel influence becomes stronger. Leather. Raisins. Chocolate. However, the sherry does not kill the Brennereicharakter, salty sea air rises in the nose. Overall, the malt looks very complex and well-balanced.
    • Taste
      Wow, the complexity of the nose continues in the mouth. Citrus fruits. Forest Fruit Marmeldade. Cherries. Chocolate. Dark caramel. Salt. Some pepper. Oak.
    • Finish
      Long. First a malty sweetie. Then drier and more bitter. The oak spice occupies the whole mouth. Roasted coffee. Dark chocolate. Again and again a salty note flashes.
