Bunnahabhain Stiùireadair

Please take into account that these are my personal tasting notes and personal experience, as such you may interpret this whisky differently from me.

I was given this sample by Mr T aka The Whisky Reiver. If you haven’t already then I highly recommend checking out his Facebook page here: The Whisky Reiver

Colour:

Reddish gold.

Nose:

Salty with lots of vanilla. Some malt as well.

Palate:

Caramel and rich, dried fruit to start but spice and oak quickly rises to overtake. As the spice dies back the fruit comes back with even more potency.

Finish:

Dried fruit followed by a slight nuttiness and some bitter oak.

Notes:

Again another great dram from Bunnahabhain, although it came across as a little young still and a bit rough around the edges. At between £33 and £40 a bottle depending where you shop it’s still good value for money although personally I preferred the 12 year old and the Toiteach A Dhà. This is also another expression I’d hate to have to try and pronounce!
