  2. HammerHead scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    A complex sherried malt, heavy on dark chocolate and liquorice. Great bottling.
    • Nose

      Dried fruits like figs, apricots and raisins, plum, sweet brown liquorice (stophoest), pecan nuts, some well integrated shoe/furniture polish and leather and a mild herbal note.

      Dark fruits, plum, dark chocolate, dark roasted coffee beans, black liquorice, a thick dark treacle like sweetness; very palatable.

  4. Calmar scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    A kind, sweet, sherry monster, the base somewhere deep and only occasionally peers through the thickness of sherry derivatives, but nevertheless imparts rigor and rigor, on the whole a very pleasant and strong mole.
    • Nose
      Open, dry, very rich, sweet, raisins, pitted grapes, spicy wood - furniture, a cigar hat, furniture varnish, fried nuts, baklava, dried fruits, dried mushrooms, pu er, prunes, leavened wort.
    • Taste
      Rich, thick, sweet oak with light astringency, raisins, burnt crackers, nuts, light sulfuric-metallic acid notes, mineral tones, bitter chocolate, a little pepper.
    • Finish
      Spicy, enveloping, raisins, prunes, oak, a little pepper, cappuccino, dark chocolate, light acidic notes.

    Wilson & Morgan Notes:

    A very traditional distillate-driven Bunnahabhain of particular intensity, pure and austere: a character that is somehow different from the usual softness of this whisky, much more playful and edgy, with a personality that begged for a cask strength bottling. A hint of tannins and just a whiff of sherry are all that betrays the influence of the second fill cask, but then the distillate takes hold of the stage: big, bold, intense, with clean notes of malt, beeswax and honey-like fragrance. The overall impression, though, is not sweet at all: on the contrary, it remains mineral, dry and quite sharp even with the addition of water. This cleanliness and austerity are what makes it particularly appealing and never cloying, calling for a second dram immediately after the first one.
