Bunnahabhain 2007 11 Year Old French Brandy Finish Review

27th June 2018
Review of the Bunnahabhain 2007 11 Year Old French Brandy Finish Distell Limited Release 2019 Malt Whisky Collection.

Bunnahabhain 2007 11 Year Old French Brandy FinishAnother one of three Bunnahabhain expressions in Distell's Limited Release Malt Whisky Collection 2019, this Bunnahabhain 2007 11 Year Old French Brandy Finish was initially filled into whisky refill casks back in 2007 when it was distilled then finished for 2.5 years in French brandy butts.

Bottled at a cask strength of 52.5% ABV, naturally coloured and non-chillfiltered, it is a limited release of 570 bottles, it has a RRP of 90 and will be available here in the UK, Europe, Taiwan, Canada, USA and Global Travel Retail.

William Morrison's Tasting Notes:

Nose: A rich sweet nose with gentle brandy fruits, orange citrus, raisins and sultanas, vanilla toffee, a lovely touch of peppery spice and just the slightest nuttiness.

Taste:  The brandy fruits lead the charge with apples and pears joining the orange citrus and raisin fruit from the nose, lightly treacled toffee, some dark chocolate, some sweet shortcrust pastry, a little nuttiness and a lovely gentle peppery spice in the background.

Finish: The brandy fruitiness bows out leaving some long lingering toffee which bitters out with a mix of coffee and tobacco.

Comment: The brandy cask has certainly added a fruity element to this Bunnahabhain,  it is a quality dram which has a lovely nose which is worth taking time to savour, its bottling strength just adds to the pleasure but still smooth to drink at 52.5%. This is something off the normal beaten track of the Bunnahabhain core range for the Bunna fans amongst you.

SMW Score 85/100
