Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose A dry and dusty nose initially, with empty walnut shells and leather-bound tomes before it opens to wet rocks, tough heather, seaweed and a little coastal smoke. Notes of honey and brown sugar appear, before a slight floral note tempers the sweetness, as aromas of fruit loaf, old apples and buttery shortbread hang tastefully.

Palate A soft and supple opening brings forth a complex array of golden fruit, leather smokiness and prickly molasses. Sweet cereals, toasted almonds and sticky toffee pudding provide an underlying sweetness to black liquorice, mochaccino and ginger and nutmeg spice.

Finish An assured and soft finish, with a little tobacco leaf and lingering treacle sweetness.

Overall A brilliant mix of stately complexity and funky fun, this breathtaking Bunnah would go smashingly well in a Blood and Sand cocktail.

Reviews for Bunnahabhain 35 Year Old (That Boutique-y Whisky Company)
Very good whisky, different like sample just try
A great mix of beeswax and furniture polish, with apricots and just a hint of marshmallows. Yellow apples and meadow flowers. Leathery notes, walnuts, perhaps a hint of turpentine. Heather. Then a hint of cigars. Complex and brilliantly aromatic,half fruity. Orange cake, apples and honey sweetness. Still these heathery / grassy touches. Soft nutty notes and leather. Less complex than on the nose, but very drinkable.
Finish: rather long, with leafy notes,

Well, I’m sorry to say it but this is simply bad whisky.
There is absolutely nothing about it to signify its age. The nose is “decent” but the palate is meek with a horrid finish (and after taste) of raw bulbs, sour-bitter, syrupy, metallic after-taste like holding your tongue against a 9V battery.
If it ever was good it is sure well well passed its prime.
I honestly have nothing positive to say at all – I’m just happy I bought a sample and not a bottle.
It reminds me of experimental sub 10 year olds rather than 30+ year old.
The most similar whisky it resembles is a diluted black bottle.
A huge disappointment and a waste of money.
