  1. Juergen Willi scored this whisky 81 points Member Senior

    Decent Islay Expression. The nose is beautyful, but the taste and the finish are disappointing.
    • Nose
      82 82
      A hint of smoke, red berries, Orange, Citrus, Caramel, Spices, Vanilla, Mint, Wine, Leather.
    • Taste
      80 80
      First sweet, then bitter (Oak wood, Nuts). Also some fruits (Apricot, Orange, Cherry). Definitely a young Whisky, unbalanced, the Alcohol is not well integrated.
    • Finish
      80 80
      Sharp and bitter. There are some Spices, Oak Wood and Ginger.

    I’m going through a couple of these Bunnahabhain NAS releases and overall I’m not impressed. Even less so by this release.
    • Nose
      Hmm, smells very industrial. Sharp wine notes, metal, oil.
    • Taste
      Very little body or punch, some smoke. Slight sweetness from the wine.
    • Finish
      Quite short, some smoke, tannins and strawberry notes.

    Aroma: alcoholic, wine, sulfurous, red cayenne pepper, dried wood, fragmented unripe walnut, ink, cherry bark mixed with the berries themselves, boiled root vegetables in the background, iodine, sea salt, after a while the wine tones weaken and malty sweetness
    Taste: hot chili peppers, sour red garden berries (red currant, unripe black currant) further bitterness from viburnum and mountain ash, wine tones, and oak bitterness.
    Finish: medium, closer to long, again the same not quite ripe berries, oak tannins, wine.
    Rating: 82-83
    Bottom line: a very strange whisky, a feeling that there are very young spirits, and they decided to improve or fully aged in very aggressive barrels. The first violin is played here by a barrel, as indicated from under the red French and Italian wines. But even though the whisky is young, it turned out to be very unusual and bright, and deserved a rather high mark!
