Bunnahabhain 7 yo (2005/2012), Spirit of Scotland, 46%

Review #684
From Gordon & MacPhail comes this single cask Bunnahabhain from a refill Sherry hogshead with the cask number 5002237. Green grass, heather and hay at first in the smell. Then some white fruits and a bit of citrus. If you had said it was younger than 7 years, I would have believed you!

Some spices in the taste, alongside some rough alcohol notes (the kind you can get from very young whisky). Again, the hay notes but now with some burned oak on the side. Actually a quite sweet and creamy finish. Vanilla and just a hint of oak.

Luckily this is bottled at 46%, which possibly saves the whisky, and bring it up to “fair”. Perfect for a warm day in the garden or alongside a dark beer with some friends. Not a whisky I would sit and pick apart – for that purpose it is simply too simple. I will give this 80/100 (19/20/21/20).
