North Star Spirits Bunnahabhain Tasting Notes

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

North Star Spirits Bunnahabhain 1990 (26 year old) 51.1%

Bourbon Hogshead/ Dist: 1990 Btl: 2016/ Tasted: Nov 2016

Deep and malty with plenty of mature baked fruit, subtle dusty, coffee’d spice and an almost refill sherry herbal character. Vibrant and citric with late notes of hyacinth and honeysuckle. Superbly balanced.

The palate wonderfully soft, opening with the toffee coated mature baked fruit and hints of sawdusty oak, vanilla and gentle spices along with a touch of almond skin, peanut and dark honey. Fabulously complex with a touch of fragrant herbs and light smoke. Stunning, spicy finish with lingering herbs, vanilla, baked fruit and a little coffee’d wood tannins.
