Whisky Reviews for Bunnahabhain 2006 BPCh

21 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.36 points

  1. Archer scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    He shares destiny with many other peated whisky that has been "sunk" by an independent bottler for some time in a sherry keg: hard on the too much limit. Blindly, I would not have recognized Bunna here, the sherry keg is very dominant and unmistakably sets the stamp on whisky. The sample I had was pretty good for slipping away, but I could not give myself a whole bottle of it; the drinking distances should be so great that I would probably have finished the whisky in the end.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Dried and sulphured plums, red grapes, raisin bread. A not so intense smoky note that lays pleasantly around the aforementioned aromas. Mild spice note.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Creamy onset with a now much more intense smoke than in the nose. Black cherries, plums, raisins. Slightly peppery. Sweet licorice. The malt is sweet and just scratching on the red line too sweet.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Medium long, with sweet fruits and a mentholy note. The initially intense smoke on the tongue has now completely disappeared, absorbed by juicy, sweet, red fruits.

  2. Okto-Bull scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    After a long time I poured the pipe Bunna from Bonn again ... Tasty tasty. Currently 89 points, but the trend is rising.

  3. ARDBERG scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    This Bunna was PXed to death, for my taste:

    hardly noticable as a whisky anymore, more a stronger PX sherry

    as such and, boy, it's sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet.

    The intensity is great and keeps my rating just above 80.

    A very interesting combination. Bunnahabhain, Refill Hogshead & PX Sherry and then heavily peated. The great peat nose is fantastic, the flavor is dominated by tart oak and of course peat. Fine, fine, I like it very much.
    • Nose
      Strong and deep dark, the amber shimmers out of the glass. The amber turns orange with a reddish glow. Long and oily streaks are slowly walking back down the glass wall. A great sight!
      A wonderful peat note immediately mixes with fruity and sweet sherry flavors. The peat becomes more and more intense over time and then completely overrides the sherry flavors. Dark berries try in vain to blaze a trail through the sweet peat aroma, a subtle hint of smoke is noticeable. The alcohol starts to tickle my nose slowly, I imagine smelling orange flavors. I can smell for hours on this sweet and fruity peat nose.
    • Taste
      Oak flavors dominate the first impression before the full load of peat discharges in the mouth. Short comes fruity sweetness through the spicy wood, then only peat follows. Slowly, tart oak tones are noticeable, a walnut aroma mixes with the now bitter peat. Wet leaves and earthy notes crowd through a subtle hint of smoke, a mixture of peat and harsh wood now dominates the taste.
    • Finish
      Dry and dry, the finish begins. Spicy oak notes and fine peat flavors are zealous, a slightly bitter nut flavor is above all else. Again wet leaves and earthy forest soil. Again and again, fruity sweetness penetrates through the tart notes. The finish sounds slow and leaves a bitter aroma.

  7. MacArthur did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    I would not say "This Bunna was PXed to death", but that he can tolerate a teaspoon of water. At least that's what I thought last night.

  10. Gloin scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    This is not a whisky whisky. The notes in the smell are so intense that it's almost too much, like a rock concert - on the edge of pain. In the mouth to the finish then he is very sweet. There is little subtle to find, but all notes are very direct. iDad would have called that a porn whisky. ;-)
    • Nose
      First there is an intense smell of plums, followed directly by bunnahabhain motor oil, then sweeter fruit notes like strawberry and raspberry, but also some currant, underlined by a fine oak note, a hint of smoke.
    • Taste
      Gentle, sweet start, red fruits, more strawberries, raspberry, only the currant leaves, then it gets sharper, sweet and sour chilli sauce, the dominated PX sherry, slightly raisins, some wood and a pale memory of leather.
    • Finish
      The sweet fruits fade only slowly and reluctantly make room for a delicate oak note, again outlined with a distant note of smoke.
