Bunnahabhain 18 years old


Adult from the north of Islay.

My whisky collection Testing / Tasting
(88 points)


After a visit to the Bunnahabhain Distillery it’s time to try an adult single malt from them. On the blog we already have some representatives of Bunnahabhain: 12 years old, Darach Ur, Eirigh Na Greine. Today tasting impressions of Bunnahabhain 18-year old which, like earlier versions is bottled with natural colour, un-chillfiltered and 46.3% ABV. Presentation deserves a praise.

C: dark amber;

N: I find here clear traces of sherry, very fruity, ripe plum, cherries, candied orange, of course it is sweet with vanilla, caramel, delicate traces of sourness, as in almost ripe cherries, then comes prune, plum in chocolate, a touch of figs and dates, I have also elements of smoke and leather furniture;

T: pleasant, there are also a lot of fruits, plum, cherry, orange and grapefruit, plum in chocolate, raisins, dates, after a while there is a delicate sparkling on the tongue, bitterness, traces of wood and a bit of salt;

F: long, still fruity.

Score: 88.

Just like Bunnahabhain 12 years old, also 18 years old version is a very good whisky. I am always happy to come back to them.

      I also like 12 yo version. The distillery itself has its charm, even if it is not very modern or advertised. But the location is perfect. Best wishes. Lukasz.
