In what will be seen as a positive move to whisky connoisseurs, Bunnahabhain have decided to bottle the 25 year old without chill-filtration and without colouring. Presented in smoked oak glass bottle and aged label design.
Nose: Sherried; sweet toffee and polished leather followed by cinnamon and the faintest hint of cardamon.
Palate: Fruit compote doused in cream and caster sugar, this develops into roasted malt, chestnuts and stewed raisins.
Finish: Demerara sugar, mixed spice, nutmeg and caramel lingering for long after the final sip.
Overall: Bunnahabhain with twent-five years aging opens up the spirit to a plethora of rich, dark flavours that stay with the drinker long after the glass is finished.

I am not a Scotch expert. I am a normal gentleman that has tried several Single Malt Whiskeys in restaurants, and wants to learn more. To do that I recently purchased 10 samples. At least one was from each region of Scotland. I had no regard for price. The goal was to try some very fine Whiskeys. I wanted to learn. This review is based on that. I am giving each sample 5 stars simply because they are all fine whiskeys and my pallet is not refined enough to make a 1-5 judgement. I just took my first sip f this wonderful whiskey. Very smooth, Very plesant. This is a great whiskey.

My favorite Scotch I have ever tasted, ever, by far! Smooth, complex, rich, and sweet, and the flavors linger on the tongue! Almost chocolatey!!! I would drink this every day if I could, but it is perfect for a special occasion, both festive and sublime!

My previous favourite was the Highland Park 25 but it has been surpassed. Absolutely lovely!

Now this is some nice, nice Scotch. I normally go more for a good Highland Scotch, but I had an opportunity to try this and figured I'd give it a shot. This is a nice, smooth whisky that has just enough of a bite. When some folks say you can smell the ocean breeze in this, they aren't kidding...definitely reminds me of standing on the beach. The palate is nice and smooth with pears, honey, a bit of salt and pepper, and a taste that reminds me of freshly-worked olive wood. The finish is amazing, with a great balance of sweetness and smokiness that lasts a long time.

From a neat pour the nose presented plums, fruitcake candies, clarified butter, and apple skin. After opening up there was damp rope, saddle blanket, bread pudding, and baked dessert crumble topping. The palate was creamy and malty with vanillas, toffee, baking chocolate, and a faint saltiness. The finish was surprisingly dry and grassy in contrast to the palate, with hints of oak, dark chocolate and salted butter. An enjoyable dram to try, as it was a sample, but the complexity was somewhat confusing given my previous experience with Bunna 12 and 18. I was expecting a greater presence of coastal notes, and found it to be more robust in style rather than concentrated. Well crafted and undeniably Bunnahabhain, just not for me...

Nose -cream,caramel,butterscotch,seaweed,ocean breeze.Palate-field berries and cream, salt&smoke, Sherried Finish- gloriously long and sherried with the perfect amount of dryness/sweetness. This dram is in my top 2. If you purchase it you will appreciate and understand the respect this commands.

Enjoyed at a tasting at an exclusive whisky bar and found it to have a slight iodine smell, maritime water, black coffee, seaweed, burnt bread and subtle pear that is not overpowering. I can see how this is an acquiring taste if your palate is not fond of an excellent malt that is not commonly explored from the Islay region. Nonetheless, it was enjoyed since I enjoy Islay malts and look forward to trying the 18yr old.

Have to take my title with a slight grain of salt. I've been a scotch drinker for 20 years, but have only been a scotch taster for the last 2. In the past 24 months, I've managed to sample a good 35-40 different "good" scotch brands. I personally lean toward the more toffee/cream/caramel tastes, and picked this bottle based on a recommendation of a friend who knows my preferences. I've had a good dozen of (and bought 6 bottles) different brands that are tailored toward my leaning, and of those 12, this Bunnahabhain 25 best them all, hands down. It has the most elegant nose, you can take a snoot of this and let the flavors form in your mind. The mouth feel is lightly oily, which is perfect for this type, and has a complicated, but not overly changing taste. And oh, the finish! Wow. Unfortunately, the 25 is the first Bunnahabhain I've ever had, so I've spoiled myself, but I'm going to visit their others after this bottle is gone.

Buyer beware. I bought a bottle in December 2014 and it was unmistakably sulphured and unpleasant to drink.

A very rich and intense sherry bomb. Only problem is, on opening for my second dram, the top of the cork broke off! Hopefully this is just a one off, and master of malt are gladly replacing my bottle. Thanks chaps at mom :-)

This is just a super dram! Damn! I get a little liquorice at the end of the palate - salty, smooth finish. This is a must have for Bunna drinkers. Got mine for £185 from world of whiskies.

I went to Whisky Live last night and this for me was the outstanding whisky of the night - complex and smooth and perfectly balanced. Now I'm summoning up the courage to spend the money.....

My favorite whisky! More expensive than the Signatory Glenglassaugh 32-year, but definitely worth it! In this range, in addition to the Glenglassaugh, I have also experienced the Tomintoul 33-year, Benromach 30-year. This is my favorite of all of them. It's pricy, but you have to experience this. On the nose, there's vanilla and caramel, and an earthy fertile smell that tempts me to try fertilizing my garden with it! The first flavors are sweet, perhaps a creme broulee or glazed pecans. Then spices start to present themselves---perhaps cinnamin? Pepper? The finish is oh so very long, complex, sweet---no spciy--- no sweet! Ahhhh!

Long lasting, just a hint of peat smoke. I thought it presented with a touch of caramel but I seem alone in this opinion. Absolutely delicious.

Smooth, long finish, superb!
