Whisky Reviews for Bunnahabhain 2007 GM

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.61 points

  1. ErrHaBe scored this whisky 86 points Expert Junior

    Pretty young and big - but still very pleasant to drink. Not overly complex, but not too alcoholic or simple either. A touch of sulfur gives the whole thing a little punch, plus the beautifully integrated wood spice and fruit aromas. Very okay for € 55, which would probably be appreciated even more today.
    • Nose
      Pure: The first impression is not that of fruits, which are only found later in the form of light, fresh plum and slightly bitter mango, but that of a light sulfurous note like fresh matches. But not unpleasant, the alcohol is well integrated despite the barrel strength. After a while, the nose becomes cooler (mint).
      With water, the nose becomes rounder, the plum ripe, with a light green banana.
    • Taste
      Pure: The mouth is better than the nose: Slightly bitter from the wood, plus dark chocolate, a little fruit (now the prunes), more dry than sweet.
      Water brings more sweetness, plus marzipan and nuts. The dram becomes malty, again dark fruits and spices (Tonka). The melty mouthfeel combines everything into a pleasant overall experience.
    • Finish
      Amazingly long, warming, dark, dry for the youngest age. Coffee, wood and malt. Water brings milk chocolate.

  2. Erik1908 scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    A sherried Bunna; so the label says. But the (first )surprise comes with the nose. There is a light smell of peat coming out of the glass. I am not in favor of heavily peated whiskies, but this whisky has a perfect balance between sherry and peat. It somehow reminds me of Springbank 12 cs; One of my favorites. Great whisky at a fair price.

  3. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Very tasty untetested Bunna, good water, 55 € fit.
    • Nose
      Sweet, velvety, cocoa, raisins, dried apricots, cinnamon, the alcohol does not stand a bit, water does not need, but it does not hurt either
    • Taste
      here the alcohol bites, then it's time to get some water - first some red apple, then velvety, cocoa, dark chocolate, gingerbread spice, very yummy, intense, full-bodied, you might like to suck on it for a long time
    • Finish
      long, a bit warming, lots of cocoa
