On the menu today, a 30 year old Bunnahabhain 1978 from the independent bottler The Bottlers. Since I am a big fan of most of the whiskies of Bunnahabhain I was glad to get my hands on this one. So let’s try and taste!
This 30 year old Bunnahabhain has matured in a refill sherry hogshead. It was distilled in 1978 and bottled in 2009 at 53,8%.
Bunnahabhain 1978/2009 tasting notes:
Nose: There is a bit of nail polish remover in the beginning, but that is gone quick. Then you tropical fruit like papaya and passion fruit. Also a very faint smoky smell. With water: Fruity, very fruity. Oranges. Nothing to the extreme though it still enclosed.
