Claxton’s Bunnahabhain Tasting Notes

Posted: January 10, 2017 in Bunnahabhain, Scotch Whisky A-G

Claxton’s The Single Cask Bunnahabhain 2002 (14 year old) 51.6%

Bourbon Hogshead 1607-3185/ Dist: Oct 2002 Btl: Oct 2016?/ Tasted: Nov 2016

A lovely aromatic, classic, summery Bunnah nose of sweet barley, hyacinth and a touch of peach skin. Really fruity with an Arran esque sub-tropical character and hints of straw, sea air, malt and coffee.

The palate opens with the crisp, salty white fruit, apricot, barley, vanilla oak and a touch of spice, heather and gentle smoke. Intensely citric on the middle but the sweetness of the barley and oak balance. Long and lightly coffee’d and subtly creamy with lingering barley and floral notes.
