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.
