  1. Bowmore Axel scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Sweet smell of spices, beautiful woody notes, soothing.

    Very sweet on the palate, something like brown sugar candy, a little bitterness that reminds of coffee and harmonizes well with the sweetness. A hint of herbs and raisins.

    The finish is very nice long. Slightly peppery, delicately salty and bitter - sweet. Long salty tingling remains in the mouth.

    That's his money value. There are 88 points from me.

  2. Othorion scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Delicious? Yes! A bunna? Unmistakable!
    But nothing special. Different but not better than the standard 12er

  3. Griller76 scored this whisky 89 points Expert Junior

    A beautifully balanced sherry nose with vanilla and creme brûlée with a little anise.
    Alcohol integrated quite well, but also a bit impetuous. Chubby sweet, gentle oriental spices. Herber hickory is nowhere to be found.
    Nice long, mild and sweet spice finish.
    A good whisky at a moderate price. A everyday dram.

    • Nose
      Great ex-bourbon fruitiness. very light and fresh with exotic notes. behind it a little bit of iodine and a tart herbaceous note that might give you a hint of smoke
    • Taste
      very sweet and oily, it runs on the tongue almost like syrup. the longer it stays in the mouth, the stronger the herbs and wood influences become. Here comes the well-known iodine again
    • Finish
      courage something rest sweet and neatly adverbing, he says goodbye. He fills the whole mouth and is marvelous maritime.
      nice malt!

  7. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Is already a stable good thing Bunna, a touch seems unbalanced and sounds in the notes even better than he seems, would like to see with 3-4y more.
    • Nose
      The nose is already clear to recognize Bunna, he comes rather dry, with maritime salt, washed up wood, autumn leaves, forest soil, dry berry bushes, burnt brown sugar, some bitter chocolate in a rasp, but everything is quite young, not now old and sublime, leatherback, rough
    • Taste
      Here, too, quite dry directly, autumn leaves, some coffee beans, salt, tannins, dark chocolate already a bit expired, burnt brown sugar, blood orange, grapefruit peel, some herbal honey, apple peel and seeds
    • Finish
      Dry, salty, forest soil, tannins, dark, rough malt, some pepper too, curry, medium-long

  10. Donwaldorf scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    I really liked this profile Bourbon / Single Malt. This whisky is drunk like whey, we want more. By cons, small flat, I can not find the distillate Bunna.
    • Nose
      To the blind I could have bet on a bourbon with its sugar, its honey and its vanilla in want it here. Going further we find notes of frangipane, almond and milk cereals. We will not miss the dark red fruits either.
    • Taste
      Alcohol perfectly integrated, a controlled reduction, which is often the case at Wemyss. We are on chocolate, spicy and woody notes. There is still sugar and dark fruit.
    • Finish
      Average length on vanilla, woody accompanied by light spices and a veil of bitterness very pleasant. Cocoa is always present.
