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


Reddish gold.


Salty with lots of vanilla. Some malt as well.


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.


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


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!

Taken from Bunnahabhain website:


Amber Gold.


Dried fruit and creamy caramel with hints of brine, vanilla, nuts and a touch of spice.


Creamy mouth feel with a dried fruit influence, sea salt, creamy caramel with hints of nuts and a gentle spice.


Long and lingering with hints of dried fruit.
