A long awaited 40 year old whisky from Bunnahabhain, a bit hit at The Whisky Show 2012. It's limited to just 750 hand numbered bottles and features an intricately designed label showing off the history of the distillery that's signed by the illustrator. The tube is made from heavy wood and features a hidden compartment in the bottom...

Bunnahabhain 40 Year Old Reviews

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by WhiskyNotes (Ruben Luyten)

    Nose: very complex nose, with some of the late 1960’s fruits (orange, banana, tangerine) as well as soft vanilla and nougat with hazelnuts. Very soft coastal notes as well. Beeswax and heather honey. Faint floral notes and something chocolaty. Leather. Smooth and easily attractive if you want it to be, but showing plenty of layers if you dedicate some time to discover them.

    Mouth: still surprisingly sweet and rounded. Tropical fruits again (banana, mango, lime and pineapple), as well as some biscuity notes. Then moving towards honey notes. Macadamia nuts. Ginger. Very little oak.

    Finish: long, with a hint of salty liquorice and spices, as well as some nutty notes.
     
    Of course the age and price set certain expectations, but they are nicely fulfilled. It’s nice to see the typical old Bunnahabhain fruitiness alongside some coastal notes, with virtually no wood.
