“Looks like Bunnahabhain always does good friends with sherry casks. An interesting whisky.”
On 25th January Scots and expats and scotch aficionados celebrate the birthday of Scotland’s national poet and Haggis the world over come out of hibernation for their special supper.
This dram has a tawny-like color.
Nose (90): more than average. honey, wood, peat, citrus, nuts, salt.
Palate (89): powerful, oily. honey, peat, sulphur, nuts, citrus, spices. A nice example of how peat and sherry can taste, even with a small off tone note of sulphur.
Finish (89): average. honey, peat, nuts, salt.So based on other whiskies I have already tasted I rate this Bunnahabhain Burns Malt 21 year 1990 The Whisky Barrel with 89 points over 100.
