Bunnahabhain 2007 11 Year Old Port Pipe Finish Review

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

Bunnahabhain 2007 11 Year Old Port Pipe FinishOne of three Bunnahabhain expressions in Distell's Limited Release Malt Whisky Collection 2019, this Bunnahabhain 2007 11 Year Old Port Pipe Finish was initially matured in whisky refill hogshead casks and then filled into port pipes in 2016 for a final 2 years of maturation.

Bottled at a cask strength of 55.3% ABV, naturally coloured and non-chillfiltered, it is a limited release of 275 bottles, it has a RRP of 90 and will be available here in the UK, Europe, Taiwan, China and Global Travel Retail.

William Morrison's Tasting Notes:

Nose: An enticingly rich perfumed nose, nutmeg, almonds, sweet malt, honey, a mix of cherry and ripe raisins, a touch of orange lurking in the background.

Taste: The palate simply confirms what the nose said was coming, pronounced almonds with a nutmeg edge leads, a lovely fresh raisiny and cherry fruitiness, delicate vanilla oakiness and a bit of oak spice.

Finish: A lovely long lingering finish, the port fruits simply cling to the palate for an age before finally bowing out to leaving some gentle oak spice.

Comment: Deliciously moreish is how I would best describe this Bunna, the final two years maturation has certainly had a big say in how this Bunna has turned out with a perfumed/almond theme from start to finish. The cask strength simply adds to the pleasure.

SMW Score 88/100
