This is the relaunched version of Bunnahabhain 18yo, with owners Burn Stewart having ditched the caramel colouring and chill-filtration and upped the strength to 46.3%. A triumph for 'naturalist' whisky drinkers and a PR triumph for Burn Stewart – bravo!

    .Although I like the traditional and much loved peaty,smokey Islay whiskies,this dram offers a gentler Islay.Next up will be the 25 year old,but not until I have enjoyed the 18 year old first.

    Was pleasantly surprised. A great whiskey for the price. Sits well on the palate and delivers a well rounded experience you would expect from an 18 yr old

    A very welcome 60th birthday present - a improvement on the 12yo, and that is one of my favourites - just saving up for the 25yo now

    Unlike the new wood & other ''recipe'' wonders, I rather like this 18 year old Bunnahabhain. It''s got a very neat slightly nutty, slightly marine taste with an extra layer of sherry that the 12 doesn''t have. This one and the 12 beat any other current Bunna releases including the 25yo.

    Not a typical Islay, but subtle, sweet and beautiful. (First Bunnahabhain I''ve had, - after many years of scotch drinking.)

    A truly excellent malt, low on the Iodine notes of many Islay whiskeys and wonderfully rich and full bodied. It''s not a cheap option among the great variety on offer these days but it is well worth it. An extremely special drop of the good stuff.

    This is an excellent whisky and great taste. It leaves a lasting lingering flavour on your pallet. A dram that makes feel you want to share the experience with close friends.

    Managed to pick up a litre bottle of this the other week. Absolute liquid gold. The best Bunnahabhain i've tasted since a 1962 Auld aquaintence on Isla last year. Highly recommended!

    Fantastic whisky. You won't get much better on Islay

    This new style is like a Glenfarclas 25 yr old in many ways. Actually, I prefer the old style with the sherry, light peat and briny flavor. Don't get me wrong this new one is excellent but I wasn't expecting another Glenfarclas.

    This is a fantastic stuff. Reminds me roasted and salted almonds like Marabou salted almond chocolate. If you have ever tasted that chocolate, you know what I mean. This Bunna is more sherried that I expected, but in the palate and finish there is wonderful mixture of salt, seaweed, smoke and hint of coffee. A complex and interesting malt!

    After last year's highly successful turnaround of the 12yo, now it's the turn of the 18yo. In going "au naturel", the flavour profile of the 12 changed dramatically. This is not the case with the 18; as befits its more refined and elegant nature, the changes are far more subtle. What it has become is drinkable and enjoyable again (the last bottle I had was so flat and lifeless I couldn't finish it). This new bottling is a triumph... a subtle triumph.
