Darach Ur Bottling Note

A one little bottle of Bunnahabhain which was launched for travel retail. The name "Darach Ur" is Gaelic for "New Oak", a reference to the fact that this whisky has been aged entirely in new American oak casks. Very unusual!

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

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.

User Reviews of the Bunnahabhain Darach Ur 1l

John Arne Wiklund, Retired!

This was a very good experience! I do not remember where or when I bought it, but finding it in my locker, and tasting it was a nice experience! Its sweet taste ot Peach? was like a dream. Understand why it is sold out, but I will be looking for a other Bunnahabhain, and hope I can find some of the same refreshing tast! Best ever?!

Bunnahabhain Darach Ur

I can't give this whisky any higher as maybe I might find a nicer whisky but I was given a bottle of Bunnahabhain Darach Ur by my grandson at Christmas time. He is in the army and wanted to buy me a Bunnahabhain when he was coming back from Germany. It was a lovely present and I had never heard of it. I know I should have kept it as a special present but I opened it and discovered a great whisky. No good leaving it to people coming to my wake and saying my go Jock kept great whisky's.

Something else for an Isley malt

I'm usually into speyside malts but after several recommendations from my friends I grabbed a bottle on Istanbul airport. I have to say I love it. Islet taste is there but with pleasant fruitiness and richness of flavors. Great structure and beautiful finish. A must buy for whisky lovers with a reasonable price.

Interesting....I like it !

This is a change from the more typical Islay flavour to something more subtle. Full of flavour more gentle but not overdone smokey. I loved this at home (Scotland) and also found it perfect in a hotter climate with some ice. If you love the strongly antiseptic Islays this Darach Ur may disappoint. It is a more classy complexity with the toffee, vanilla and fruit flavours in a leathery style noted on the tasting notes.Very interesting and tasty.

Bought a bottle from Bristol airport duty free. I love Bunna 12yo for its unique character - so Islay and yet not so - and wondered how Darach Ur might compare. Completely different is the answer. Smoother, in some ways more like Bruichladdich Rocks but sweeter and with greater complexity. I won't go on about whether I discovered vanilla, singed foxgloves or whatever in the nose/palate - but just say it's a very fine dram and a welcome addition to both the Bunnhabhain and Islay ranges of expressions. Great value, just a pity it's not available on general sale

Very Nice...........

I picked one of these bad boys up at Heathrow airport on my way out to Dubai last month. I was curious as I am visiting Islay for a couple of days in April 2014. Very nice, I think I will have to call in to the distillery to see what other gems they have hidden away. Love it!!!!!

Don't know what all the crying is about

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!!

Good on you Bunna

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

Very unique flavor in it. Worth of checking out.

Odd ... but nice

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.
