Tasting Notes

Bunnahabhain 16 Year Old - 1999 | Abbey Whisky Tasting Notes

Appearance: Deep gold.

Nose: gorgeous gentleness to the peat here – if indeed there’s much at all – as it’s blended with a real malty quality. Smoked salmon, with balsamic vinegar, elderberries, blackberry jam and a slight umami sensation.

Palate: salted caramel, with Assam tea, redcurrants, blackberries again. A slight sour, musty quality, which I’ve known before in some outlier Bunnahabhain casks, and it strays into olives and sundried tomatoes. Dark chocolate.

Finish: salty, oily, with a little burnt toast. 


Bunnahabhain 16 Year Old - 1999 | Single Cask Producer Notes

Nose: Vanilla, floral notes, raisins, blackberries, whipped cream and black pepper.

Palate: Slight saltiness, soft spice; limes, dark chocolate, cocktail cherries and strawberries.

Finish: Apples, pears, dark chocolate. Warming with more dark fruits on the finish.
