Bunnahabhain 35 Years (That Boutique-y Whisky Company Batch #4)

Here’s another new release from That Boutique-y Whisky Company, a 35 years old Bunnahabhain. I suppose this could be one of these 1980 casks – the profile is certainly similar.



Bunnahabhain 35 Years - That Boutique-y Whisky CoBunnahabhain 35 yo (40,2%, That Boutique-y Whisky Company 2017, Batch #4, 50cl, 302 btl.)

Nose: great mix of beeswax and furniture polish, with apricots and just a hint of marshmallows. Yellow apples and meadow flowers. Leathery notes, walnuts, perhaps a hint of turpentine. Heather. Then a hint of cigars. Complex and brilliantly aromatic.

Mouth: half earthy, half fruity. Orange cake, apples and honey sweetness. Still these heathery / grassy touches. Soft nutty notes and leather. Less complex than on the nose, but very drinkable. Finis: rather long, with leafy notes, a little pepper and zesty citrus. Still this honeyed edge.

Bunnahabhain at this age is usually nicely polished and complex – this is no different. Perfect drinking strength as well, but quite expensive. Available from Master of Malt.

Score: 89/100
