Whisky Reviews for Bunnahabhain 2008 DT

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

  1. Einfach_Supi scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Due to the octave ripening very many flavors. In the nose still next to each other, but very diverse, but in the mouth a wonderfully creamy whisky, mild on the finish. Teen, but that's the way it should be. The Brennereicharakter comes through every corner, so he joins my top ten, yummy
    Definitely it does not tolerate any water at all, so it's just something for connoisseurs who can cope with cask strength. 88 points
    • Nose
      First clear cereal notes, solvent. This flies but quickly, then clear sherry flavors: raisins, nectarine, now the typical Bunna notes: wet rubber glove, a lot of spice, salty air, definitely no smoke or peat. Finally, fresh grain again. Very many flavors, all very fine, but not yet interwoven.
      With a little water, it becomes more harmonious and sweeter, with the addition of oranges; but many aromas are drowned ... so just sniff so pure ;-)
    • Taste
      Strong onset, peppery, lots of sweetness, roasted caramel, vanilla crème, sherry fruits, but not dominant. Very fine in the mouth.
      With water in the mouth very sweet, honey, fondant fruits, almonds, but also in the mouth is lost a lot, the creaminess and the fruits are drowned.
    • Finish
      Amazing long warm finish, the alcohol is very mild and with a lot of sweetness he slides down the neck, milk chocolate. With water the finish becomes short and boring,
