Whisky Reviews for Bunnahabhain Stiùireadair

42 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 80.78 points

  1. Cubey666 scored this whisky 75 points Expert Senior

    No... this is not what a Bunnahabhain is supposed to be...

    Nose: bit briny, young spirit-like, malty, baked bread and a whim of fried potatoes with onions and bacon

    Taste: Alcoholic burn, more intense than the ABV% would suggest, Spirity, bit harch, reminds me a bit of Grappa

    Finish: none so what ever.

    In short: the name is more complex than the body

  2. PunxsutawneyPhil scored this whisky 75 points Expert Senior

    Wow, I really wanted to write a positive review after those negative ones below. But the more attention I gave this, the worse I think it is. The IB's and 2017/2018 Feis Ile bottlings are a great lot better, luckily, IMHO.
    • Nose
      82 82
      Not quite Bunna-like. Fudge, vanilla, some ammonia chloride, musty oak wood, all covered in annoyingly present sulfur,
    • Taste
      78 78
      Watery, then sherry notes, some fudge and vanilla sticks, then sulfur and then quite peppery,
    • Finish
      65 65
      Short, bitter in the end, slightly drying. Sulfur, fudge and some sherry notes die quickly on the tongue and on the side of the tongue. Not pleasant.

  3. ASWhisky scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    why 81P and not 80 P?
    Dectel said
    "that was the cutter chugging past"
    yes that was it
    • Nose
      Smells like Buna / Sherrymaritim
      smoky like at the harbor
      salt licorice
      caramelized ivy leaves
      Rum from the bottle
      raisins
      Salmiak moderately - the eucalyptus
    • Taste
      cool & smooth at the start
      Nougat chocolate on the tip of the tongue, then smoky warm, filling the mouth, sweet cider apples, herbs on the tongue, light alcohol note
      gets biterier and a bit spicy if it's longer in the mouth
    • Finish
      Rum, cider apples, and bitter apple peels remain on the palate
      slightly smoky sugar in the throat

  4. wisekycourse scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    On the nose, it's malty, full of cereals (hay in August !!), and vanilla, and scent of dried fruits!
    On the palate, vanilla, almost pastry, dried flowers, dry emblems and a spicy sweetness, return of light salty smoke.
    In the finish, simple but tenacious, not very strong, but monolithic and durable on the dry fruit, and a little cocoa.

    A surprising dram, not peaty, but traces of dry smoke, rather scattered fruit aromas, towards blackcurrant, vanilla that regulates everything!
    a NAS supposed to replace the 12?
    simple, but in my strings!
    • Nose
      malt, macerated fruit, spicy, velvety, nuts back.
    • Taste
      spicy, malt, sherry with mold and slightly cooked fruits, some wood and salt iodine.
      woody, kernel, crushed almond and still waxy on the nut!
    • Finish
      frank, short to medium on the same scents !!

  8. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Drunk so on the TV side, I found the quite useful, now with full attention rather disappointing and compared to the Ancl Cladach much better. Nose weak, leaving weak, mouth not convincing, too much spicy and bitter, except for the hint of salt liquorice no "pro" to find. I do not have to pay for 40 €.
    • Nose
      thin or rather restrained - raisins, caramel, nut, malt, maybe a touch of sea air, somehow unspanned, makes little desire ... after a while actually some Salzlakritze and eucalyptus - I like that, but way too thin, because I have the Sucking in whisky almost with your nose
    • Taste
      officially "soft and creamy" - well, it bites quite a bit, pepper, salt, nougat, a bit woody-bitter, burnt bread ... if it stays in the mouth for a long time, it is a little creamier, toffee, raisins, but also more bitter
    • Finish
      rather short nougat, longer bitter and spicy

  9. Okto-Bull scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      sweet, with a little sherry. Slightly maritime with seaweed, herbs and licorice
    • Taste
      slight bitterness with chocolate. Salt with licorice. All in all a bit too shallow.
    • Finish
      Pepper, here comes the alcohol.

  10. Oldpultnie scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    2 nd review after 7 months. No change in rating.
    • Nose
      84 84
      Good sherry nose, Vanilla, caramel, nuts and a maritime touch. Loads of malt.
    • Taste
      83 83
      Light creamy, honey and sherry sweet with a good amount of spiciness. Too salty near the end when drying out.
    • Finish
      81 81
      Short finish, dry wood and some salt
