The gentle taste of Bunnahabhain is due partly to the lightly peated malted barley used in its creation as well as the pure spring waters of the Margadale River, trapped underground away from the peaty moorlands. The nose offers a fresh and aromatic experience with a subtle whiff of smoke floating through the air. The taste starts with a light fruit and nut appeal that leads to a spectacular malty sweetness, finishing into a beautifully rich, full-bodied, lingering experience.
Intensely malty. The palate entry is off-dry, slightly salty and intensely cereal-like; the midpalate stage highlights the medium-sweet grain and oak. Finishes off-dry to medium sweet and grainy-malty.— P.P. (8/1/2006) — 80-84
This beautiful golden spirit’s nose releases honeyed nuts and a slightly sea-induced salty tang. Rich toffee and leathery oak aromas can be sensed upon further inspection. The palate is influenced by mellow sherried nuts and shavings of the finest natural oak wood.The voyage ends with dry notes that are interspersed with mixed spices fading magnificently into a light salt and sherry finale.
