  1. Calmar scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Pretty pleasant sherry whisky, not too sweet, whole, deep enough and complex, not too complicated, but some age is felt.
    • Nose
      Discreet, dry, buttery notes, fried potatoes, spiced wood, solid wood furniture, furniture lacquer, herbarium, ripe foliage, dried mushrooms, raisins, dried apples, homemade pastille, spiky mineral tones, sour metal motifs.
    • Taste
      Thick, saturated, oak, furniture lacquer, raisins, light pepper shades, leather goods, bittersweet notes of burnt jam, burnt crackers, stout, creamy notes.
    • Finish
      Spicy, refreshing, lacquer notes, oak, charred branches, stout, burnt caramel, dark chocolate, licorice.

  2. Jean-Claude Van Dram scored this whisky 87 points Member Junior

    On the nose: sherry with dried fruits, Christmas spices and a hint of sulfur, a little smoked meat, cinnamon, ginger and orange.

    On the palate: dried fruits, spices, cooked wine, some leather and menthol smoke. Liquorice and bitter chocolate.

  3. Ruud6421 scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    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
      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.

  4. St. Pauli scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    • 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.

  5. The Macallan scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    A very nice Bunna in a line-up from a Bunnahabhain tasting
    • Nose
      Lovely balaced sherry in the nose with some dried fruit
    • Taste
      Somewhat dried grapes like sherry flavors
    • Finish
      Bayleaves and drying with a sherry spicyness
