This oldie has a very rich nose, but it is surprisingly light and fragrant on the palate. Only the price of almost £2000 is a wee bit steep. – Rating: 87/100

With its light colour it looks weakish, but don’t be fooled. After opening up there is a burst of fruity and spicy flavors. Excellent. – Rating: 88/100

This uncommon heavily peated Bunnahabhain is also unusually sweet, in fact a bit too sweet for my taste. – Rating: 79/100

The sweetness is the first thing you notice in this excellent dram. But then the fruit and liquorice join in. – Rating: 87/100

Simply a nice peated daily dram, nothing stands out here. – Rating: 83/100

Not your typical oloroso cask here… The nose is superb, but the ABV has come down to a level that gives it a sightly watery mouthfeel. Surprisingly litte wood influence. – Rating: 87/100

Despite the rather strong peat the underlying flavours are rather subtle, the nose has a nice freshness. This feels a bit younger than it actually is. – Rating: 84/100

The wood has begun to take over here, but it still is a very fine dram. The finish is a bit on the short side, though. – Rating: 88/100

Bunnahabhain 1989/2012 Berry Bros.

A dram that needs a little time and attention, but the patience is rewarded with delicate and lovely flavours. – Rating: 87/100

Bunnahabhain 1979/2011 Adelphi

The nose of this oldie is very impressive, but palate and finish are strangely weak in comparison. – Rating: 84/100

Bunnahabhain 1968/2011 Wilson & Morgan

March 25, 2012

A delicious old-style whisky with a creamy and slightly waxy mouthfeel but no overwhelming wood influence. – Rating: 87/100

Bunnahabhain 2001/2011 The Whisky Agency

March 23, 2012

A malt from a rather tired cask with a less than perfect nose, on the palate it catches up a little but overall it remains somewhat lacklustre. – Rating: 80/100

Bunnahabhain 24yo 1986 Exclusive Malts for Taiwan

February 28, 2012

Quite pleasant on the nose but palate and finish are a bit disappointing. There is a nice spiciness but it just feels a bit too sugary. – Rating: 81/100

A very pleasant combination of sweet fruit and dry wood with just a hint of the signature Bunnahabhain freshness. – Rating: 89/100

The fantastic old time sherry nose is in 90+ territory, but palate and finish are strangely weak for such a high end whisky. – Rating: 84/100

A very fine and thick dram with a nose that captures the meaty quality some rich sherries can have. Some gentle spices round off this malt. – Rating: 87/100

This heavily peated Bunnahabhain is quite unusual for the distillery, but it can well compete with the usual suspects. Its oily mouthfeel makes it stand out. – Rating: 86/100

There is a Compass Box whisky called Spice Tree, but this one can safely be called ‘Spice Monster’. Its general character is rather mild, but the flavours are very strong. – Rating: 87/100

Bunnahabhain 1976/2008 Murray McDavid

August 11, 2011

This very complex malt displays some rather odd flavours which I really like, but it may not be everybody’s favourite. – Rating: 89/100

Bunnahabhain 1998/2011 Adelphi

August 10, 2011

A small dose of sulphur is spicing up this already very rich dram even more. It is extremely densely flavoured, but the quite prominent driness knocks a few points off the score. – Rating: 84/100
