Another Bunnahabhain with an unpronounceable name. A great whisky with the usual pleasure from mainly sherry cask maturation. Yes, it would do better with a full 12 years in the wood, but mine cost £26 so I went back for another bottle.
On first tasting it is like what the 12 year old used to be 2 years ago. It has the rich first-fill sherry that I fell in love with in a Bunnahabhain and it does have a very slight salty brine to it in the background. Excellent dram for the price. And apart from an age statement, it ticks all the boxes (46.3%abv, non-chill filtered and natural colour)
Smooth, soft, best yet.
Sublime,like Bunna used to be. A sweet edge to this one,brilliant smooth finish. Prefer this one to the current 12yr old.
Very smooth, subtle and easy. Lovely velvety texture, refined and understated.
Bunnahabhain is one of my favorite distilleries, and this is the first whisky of theirs that (unfortunately) disappointed me. Way too young and fiery. The nose is decent with (dried) fruit, a bit of malty sweetness and some cream caramel, but both the arrival and finish are chaotic, with overpowering spices and alchohol burn. The finish is gone quicker than Usain Bolt off the start line. Gets a bit soapy with water. This whisky is not very well constructed, and lacks integrity and solidity in what it wants to present itself as. For lack of a better description, it is like a fourteen year old kid going through seven identity crises in one afternoon.
A beautiful and exquisite whisky, I recommend to anyone who asks
