On the twenty-fourth day of the Dramcalendar we have the Bunnahabhain 1991, a joint bottling between the two independent bottlers The Whisky Agency and The Nectar.

I wish all my readers and their families a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays. I will be back after the Holidays for my year-end review. New episodes will come out on January 7th.

Very fruity with raisins, figs, dried fruits and baked apples. Cacao powder and burned vanilla crescents. A hint of fresh polished wood in the back.


Incredible smooth and buttery soft! Also very fruity. The sherry is even more noticeable now. Dried citrus fruits and some spices. Followed by dark chocolate, nougat and dried red apples.


Long. Mild and warming with a slight dryness. Again sherry, accompanied by nutmeg, cardamom, cinnamon and a bit of chocolate.


A truly wonderful aged Bunnahabhain with a tremendous amount of complexity and depth.

Score: 89 / 100
