  1. Dre73 scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    This one gets better along the way, but is not really one of the Bunna's I've tasted.
    • Nose
      82 82
      Red fruits, berries, but some strange rubber-like smell as well...
    • Taste
      83 83
      A little pepper, spicy, some red fruits, and some notes of chocolate.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Pretty much peppers, coffe, caramel and chocolate. Middle long.

    I only had one sample of this, this in advance.

    Not mine.
    Somehow I don't really get warm with red wine barrels. There aren't many that blow my mind.

    With this one, what I call glue bothers me.
    In the smell and on the tip of the tongue.
    It's also quite hot for the 46%
    But I like the raisins.

  8. The Macallan scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    N: slightly briny, winey and sherry (reduced: more aromatic)

    P: briny, wine, fruity (reduced: more flavors, even better)

    F: warm, spicy, vanilla

    C: A fine Bunnahabhain but they could skip the red wine finish

  9. Cubey666 scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Tasted during a Malts of Scotland "Rollercoaster-tasting" October 2016

    nose: raspberries, spicy, mocha, reminds me of some sweet red wines. not much further to it.

    taste: clearly red wine cask influence in the taste. hints of leather and wood tannines.

    finish: quite dry and a little bit astringent. grapes and prunes.

  10. St. Pauli scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    Not the best. The oak was quite active, delivering some cloying (off)notes. Maybe that's why they reduced it to 46%. 
    • Nose
      A trace of wood smoke, with spice, but otherwise lots of red fruit: plums, cherries, berries. It has about the same level of "dampness" that you can get from sherry matured whiskies. Apart from this, there is nothing substantial to be detected, maybe a bit of malt. 
    • Taste
      Slightly salty, but actually much drier than you'd expect. It starts with stewed red fruit (compote) and orange juice. Then, bitter chocolate, malt and cinnamon enter the palate, followed by grape seeds, clove, ginger and pepper. A strange walnut note intermingles.
    • Finish
      Rather short and drying. Mainly grape seeds and ginger, followed by prune. Finally, bitter chocolate.
