    It's a fruity Bunnahabhain, somewhat lighter than other IB Bunnahabhains from the early 90's. Some strange flavour combinations in it. The Bunnahabhain profile is elementary, but with some wacky accents. I really like this one.88/100
    • Nose
      This initially shy whisky needs its time to open up. The nose is dusty and malty and quity faint at first. But after some time breathing and some good swirles, its becomes rather fruity. The nose gets rounder and the dust and malt get company of green apples, green pears and avocado. Some minty aroma's as well. Quite interesting.
    • Taste
      In the mouth it's directly full-bodied. More unripe fruits combined with maltiness. In the mouth a also can detect some coastal influences (salty seabreeze). All still with a dusty, malty whiff. Some mold can be detected too, not sure about that one. It gives the whisky an edge, but can be offsetting to some. Mouthfeel is very pleasant for me.
    • Finish
      The finish is spicy and fruity. Pretty long.

  7. The Macallan scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    N: slightly briny, that typical Bunnahabhain musty smell, refill sherry, much fruityer instead of the spicyness you'll expect, there's some vanilla, tablet, leather but it has a gentle nose and doesn't rock you, some oaky notes but not fresh wood (reduced: more layers of tropical fruit and apples, the first estery notes pop up and goes in some what herbal aromas.

    P: soft, round, slightly peat smoke/briny flavor and then it becomes warm, slightly and somewhat fruity (reduced: much softer, peardrops (yes lovely sweet estery notes), oaky and dry sherry.

    F: warming, long, woodspices (ground ginger) some water will give the finish more of its fruityness.

    C: not your average Bunnahabhain, the profile (musty, spicy, briny) is there but apart from that is different on many aspects, however it's a fine dram.
    Bottle 14 from 30
