The third tiny bottle of Christ’s bl- I mean – Christmas Advent Holiday Year Ender Boutique-y Whisky things is the Bunnahabhain 10y Batch 14. I dunno what happened to batches 0-13. Also worth noting there is no mention of a 10y anything on their website.
We first tasted a bunch of Bunnahabhain’s at the Whiskey Ottawa event back in the fall, they’ve always been a little pricey so it’s nice to have tried three now. Still not sure they’re worth the inflated price tag tho. Here’s what we thought:
Dan – brandy, wood, perfume, leather
Simon – mashy, no smoke, moonshine, waffles
Dan – hot, dry, varnishy, walnuts
Simon – bitter, pop, husk, hazelnut, honey
Dan – good, salivating, sweet
Simon – warmth
Dan – dry, spicy, tobacco, heather
Simon – honey & spice
Dan – 6.5/10
Simon – 6.9/10
Bunnahabhain 10y Batch 14 – 50.5% 30ml – $ – Islay
Try it? Sure. Buy it? Nah.
