  1. Kantenmechaniker scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    I like it. A pleasant nose, in the taste with power, smoke and intense PX influence and then it gets woody. Back out he could not be so bitter for my taste.
    • Nose
      sweet, creamy, chocolate, some caramel, lemon flavor, warm cocoa, the smoke is there, but not very intense, behind the creamy coat of chocolate, I find a fresh fruity note, sweet raspberries, slightly maritime and musty, the Bunnahabhain character is well hidden, but there, with time fresh and minty in the nose of quite high alcohol content, wet wood and wet tobacco are also present
    • Taste
      ui, there's the smoke, nice dry and spicy, burning logs, then creamy sweet, with fruit, caramel, chocolate, slightly dry, bittersweet, short sulfur, floral notes, flowery, now it's getting drier
    • Finish
      now almost bitter, espresso, the dry smoke is everywhere, grape skin, occasionally short creamy intermezzo of caramel, long-lasting, behind a really hefty portion of oak

  2. Archer scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    A very nice filling with successful maturing in PX barrel. Beautiful Islay character. Not too young, not too old, just right.
    • Nose
      The nose starts fruity and peaty / smoky. The smoke is subtle and mixes nicely with the smell of dried orange peel. In addition, there are still hints of fermented grapes. The approach of a sea breeze at the beginning passes quickly. The more maritime initial character turns into a more earthy nose. Take whole milk chocolate, raisins, cane sugar and a clear impact of the PX barrel.
    • Taste
      Strong peat and smoke, raisins, cloves, allspice, black pepper and dark chocolate. Also on the tongue, the PX Nachreifung can be quickly recognized. Through the strong peat at the beginning of the whole mouth is lined with dark-fruity smoke. Very full and "dense" character, slightly oily.
    • Finish
      Long finish, in which at the end grape-sweet smoke not only on the tongue, but still remains on the whole palate.

  6. ARDBERG scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Smothered by PX, the Bunna character disappears somewhat. PX sweetness, sweat and chocholate with a hint of smoke is all that remains. It is muscular and yet charming in a way but not really mulitlayered.

    Drops of water really help to push the score by 3 points. Still this dram is too overwhelmed by the PX for my taste. Less would be more.

  7. Mannix65 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Only 2-3 drops of water open it and push it in the dots scale up - yet I find him ambiguous and can not make friends with him
    • Nose
      Immediately there is foul smoke in the glass, sulphurous sherry, behind it dusty Renekloden - with the addition of water appear dates and dried apricots, grilled fully ripe pineapple - the foul sulfur notes after a while in the glass
    • Taste
      full bodied - chimney smoke, honey sweetness with subtle sherry touch and vanilla - in the mouth it is much more balanced than in the nose and presents a different character
    • Finish
      Smoke stuck in the throat for a long time and lots of sweetness

  9. ApricotOne scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Nose: Campfire smoke, orange, black tea, mint, wet, dried hay, dark chocolate Palate: Smoke, some sweetness reminiscent of cane sugar and light oiliness, white pepper and a touch of dried raisins Finish: Medium to long, a few almonds because of the bitterness. Were European oak barrels used? and dry. The smoke will remain present for a long time. For the issue price but at today's, aufgrufenen prices I would not put me.

  10. hs305 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    [June, 2016]  I had this dram during a "Feis Ile 2016" tasting at Bonn.

    In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 87,5.  My notes state the typical modern "dirty" Bunna style.
