Insider knowledge: Bunnahabhain Darach Ur 1l whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from Scotland. If distilled in America the spelling would be Bunnahabhain Darach Ur 1l whiskey, as opposed to whisky.
Nose: Green and grassy, some cinnamon, toffee, dates, barrel char, spices and walnut.
Palate: Tropical fruits, spice, coffee, crème caramel, pine nuts and resin.
Finish: Peppery, spicy and warming, toffee.
Bit like a Glenlivet but with a much sweeter finish in the mouth and a delayed fire in the belly. Better with an ice cube. Very nice for the price.

This whisky sadly just taste woody sweetness and don't remind me one second of Islay. Will not buy another Bunnahabhain again.

I picked up a bottle at the feis this year and thought it great that Bunnahabhain are finally moving forward with some other expressions rather than the usual age statements(even though the 18 is one of my favourites). I agree it took me a few drams to really get my head around it but with a good price tag i don't feel dissapointed at all, on the contrary, i'm glad Bunna are trying something new. If your not a mad fan of the Darach ur then the Cruach Mhona, the other duty free bottle is a bit closer to the usual Bunna style but with a bit more rich smokieness to it. A very satisfying dram with some smokies on the pier. Also.... Top marks for this years festival bottling. One of the best this year.

This is gorgeous stuff! The whisky afficionado will appreciate the sweet tartiny, vanilla froth cake with nutmeg and a wonderfull sweet spice complexity. The small sherry and subtle pratically non-existant peat, makes up awonderfull leathery nature to a sweet well-rounded malt. Marvelous!!
