Whisky Reviews for Bunnahabhain 1989 CA

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.80 points

  1. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Very calm, set Bunna with beautiful bourbon cask notes, which go quite in my direction, also one of the most tropical Bunnas so far.
    • Nose
      Yellow fruit, sweet pear, fresh lemon is also noticeable in front, beautiful wild honey, toffee, mango, some candied ginger, fresh cantaloupe
    • Taste
      Ginger present, yellow, floury apples, passion fruit, pineapple, bitter hops, toffee, tropical honey, salt and white grapefruit
    • Finish
      Camphor, lemon grass, licorice and pleasantly gentle salt notes, medium to long

  4. detachedblue scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    It is much to my liking, a great Bunnahabhain with decent ages.
    • Nose
      Old style, pungent alcohol, then pineapple chunks
    • Taste
      A dynamic transition from soft smokiness to ripe fruits and honey
    • Finish
      Medium, cigar leaves, pineapples
