Specialist Ruud6421 Tasting note

Ruud6421 gave this whisky 84 points
Color
Russetmuscat
Nose

The nose is slightly sulfury, not overwhelming though. It’s a quite typical middle-aged Bunnahabhain nose with cherry, a gently sea breeze and some nuts. Sherry influences are very present. Nuts (almonds and pecan) and some dried fruits. Missing some body in the nose.

Taste

Quite timid. More nuts and dried fruits, mostly raisins. Warming, but thin.

Finish

The dram ends drier, with figs and raisins. Not very long.

Comments

A very typical middle-aged Bunnahabhain from a sherry cask. A very nice dram, but not much excitement in there. Would have loved to taste this at cask strength, it’s shame they bottled it at 46%. This bottle cost me €115,-, which is way too much for this dram.

Nose

Slightly peated, salt air, wood, vanilla, leather, meat and pineapple. A strange combination, but it works.

Taste

Vanilla, oak, honey, cereals, pepper, wax, apple and banana.

Finish

A bit sour, apple sauce, a hint of peat, honey and pepper.
