Bunnahabhain 1990 (Whisky-Fässle)
Tasting notes by Ruben Luyten - Posted in Bunnahabhain
A dark sherry Bunnahabhain 1990 bottled by Whisky-Fässle.
Bunnahabhain 22 yo 1990
(50,4%, Whisky-Fässle 2013, sherry butt)
Nose: really close to actual sherry. Lots of juicy, jammy fruits. Brambles, strawberry jam, raspberry ganache. Nice. Spanish pan de higos from Murcia. Cinnamon. Something toasted as well. Whiffs of mint. Maybe unlit matches but that’s an asset here. Absolutely clean. Mouth: classic sherry, bags of raisins and chocolate. Dates and figs. A little pepper and ginger. Christmas cake. Finish: long, showing more herbs and a little liquorice, which adds just enough dryness.
A nice, fruity sherry monster. Did they have spies at GlenDronach or Glenfarclas teaching them how to make this kind of rich sherried whisky? Good stuff, better than the other early 1990’s I could try. Around € 80.
