What I say

Door #17 of the Drinks by the dram Scotch Whisky Advent Calendar.

Distilled at Bunnahabhain and matured for 11 years before bottling at 49.5% ABV by TBWC to produce 1,091 bottles

My tasting notes:

  • Appearance: Old gold (10/20), strong, fine legs, medium tears.
  • Nose: Sweet apples and icing sugar, vanilla, pear, banana, chantilly cream, biscuit, caramel, shortbread, a little musty dunnage warehouse and funk, delicious!
  • Taste: Caramel and toffee, latte coffee, some zesty green apple and cinnamon and shortcrust pasty combine to make apple pie but sadly this is a little light on the palate.
  • Finish: Long, toffee and spiced white pepper.


A rather frustrating Bunna, full of that delicious funky mustiness on the nose but just a little light on the palate and peppery in the finish that doesn’t really know what to do with itself. Still a classic Bunna so I still kinda like it.

Score 84/100

Don’t take my word for it:
