  1. EinSpatzUnterVielen scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    A typical Wemyss theme bottling - this is the name of the program: you feel transported back to a gentleman's room, with notes of tobacco and leather ... harmonious from nose to finish.
    • Nose
      Leather, satchels, cigar box, tobacco, - the name is program; dark caramel, oranges, lemons, smoke, forest floor, freshly hewn spruce, forest air, mushrooms
    • Taste
      oily, intense spicy on the nose with smoke and pipe tobacco, lemon, orange, blackberry, ginger, pepper, mocha, malt candy, burnt caramel, vanilla, cotton candy, leather, barbecue sauce, meat broth, light sweetness, but more on the spicy track
    • Finish
      aromatic and spicy, with smoke, tobacco and leather, lemon and ginger ... at the end still tobacco, meat broth and the burnt caramel ...

    In this Bunnahabhain the name is program. Chandler's Tobacco Pouch fits like a fist on the eye. Intense and clear fruit flavors mingle with the tasty tobacco aromas, there is nothing else to mention in my conclusion. Great part, I like it very much!
    • Nose
      Shortly after pouring roast aromas and dark fruit notes flow from the glass. The Bunna looks fresh and clear at first, then showcase berries, blackberries and cherries powerfully. Fresh tobacco leaves and a hint of cedar wood blend with "young" leather, sweet tobacco and a subtle smoky note let forget the fruity notes. The leather and the various tobaccos exude their tasty flavor for a long time while the fruit notes gradually return. Orange and lemon slices give off their intense aroma, while prunes mix with the sweetish tobacco / leather note. Fruity and harsh, then sweetness and caramel followed by vineyard peach and orange, the flavors change every second. After this varied nose, I can hardly wait for the first sip, especially as my salivation is more and more stimulated ...
    • Taste
      Clear and pure the first sip flows over the tongue. Liquid tobacco and wet leather dominate the first sip. The cigar box and cedar wood mentioned here are fully appreciated. Sweetish tobacco leaves mingle with harsh leather, a subtle smoky note is above all else. Dark and intense cherries and blackcurrants mix with the tasty tobacco flavors. Even I as a self-confessed non-smoker can not get enough of these aromas ;-) I sincerely hope that these aromas never fade away and remain in my memory forever.
    • Finish
      Cold smoke and bitter tobacco dominate the action at the beginning of the departure. Wet and harsh leather mixes with the tart tobacco aromas, the fruity cherries and blackberries honor slowly back. Dark and tart wood tones spread over the tongue and exude their harsh and dry aroma. An old and dry walnut flavor leaves the "cigar box" forgotten for a moment at the very end of the departure.

    The scores especially with his great nose, which is best enjoyed after a while in the glass. Also in the taste and finish he is top, a very beautiful independent Bunna.
    • Nose
      92 92
      Dark fruit with overripe grapes, raisins, dried figs and dates. Old leather, flavored pipe tobacco. The barrel comes out very well. Over time black cherry jam, blackcurrants, blackberry jelly. Marzipan, nougat, toffee, caramel. Spices need their time, but once there, they focus intensely on the fruits: cinnamon, rosemary, curry spice, cumin. The smell of damp autumn leaves.
    • Taste
      91 91
      Creamy, viscous onset. Syrupy. Dried prunes and figs, cherries, grape juice. Orange marmalade, almonds, marzipan bread. There is a rather rich selection of flavors on the tongue. Slightly grated ginger and fresh peppermint. Raspberry drops. Gets dry after a while and brings leather and tobacco notes. Mature, slightly damp wood. Honey, vanilla. Forest soil after a rain shower. Mild pepper, slightly mentholig in the back.
    • Finish
      90 90
      Medium to long, slightly dry. Oak notes, leather, roasted orange peel and a mild spice mix.

    [URL = https: //www.whiskybase.com/whiskies/whisky/97590/bunnahabhain-1988-wy] A very nice Bunnahabhain [/ URL]

    Nose:
    Immediately after pouring dark fruit flavors flow from the glass.
    Blackberry, blackcurrant, fully ripe sweet cherries, blood orange, pomegranate.
    After a few swivels in the glass it gets spicier - cigarillos, leather, but also some Wick Vaporub and a subtle ginger note in the background. A walk through a coniferous forest after a rain, when light mustiness from the damp soil and resin scents rise in the nose.
    When the nose moves away from the edge of the glass, the smell becomes fresh, freshly cut orange and tangerine.
    A really great, changeable nose!

    Mouth:
    The start is immediately dark fruity (dark berries, plums), with a spicy touch of tobacco and smoke (I immediately have cigarillo in the mouth and in the nose). Orange marmalade and caramel, subtle notes of After Eight, some ginger. With some time left in the mouth hazelnut and walnut are still on the stage.
    Also multilayered in the mouth, changeable without getting tired. You want to keep it forever in your mouth!

    Finish:
    Medium-long, dark-fruity and restorative tobacco.

    A really great bottling, which is a lot of fun and with which you can easily spend half an hour.

    92/100
