Bunnahabhain Stiùireadair Bottling Note

Bunnahabhain's Stiùireadair single malt pays homage to the distillery's shoreline on the north-east coast of Islay. They used whisky matured in first and second fill Sherry casks, with a leaning towards deliciously coastal malt.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Brine, toasted sugar and caramel-drizzled raisins.

Palate: Honey-roasted nuts, cinnamon and clove, with a touch of salt sea too.

Finish: Sherried peels and chilli-chocolate.

Bunnahabhain Stiùireadair Reviews

Not Bunnahabhains best effort.

Bought this from my local Morrisons on special offer at £26. The nose is a little disconcerting, very like my experience with Glenrothes select. I found a predominant aroma of vulcanised rubber. I have to admit that I was surprised. The foretaste was very like my 18yo Dalmore, which to be honest, I am not a huge fan of. Very fierce and oily. Not altogether unpleasant, but not great either. The aftertaste was sweet and rich in caramel which was more Speyside than Islay for me. The lack of peat and smoke left me a little disappointed; not what I'd have expected from one of my favourite Islay distilleries. Interesting is probably the kindest description I could apply. After two reasonable drams, I found the oiliness causing my mouth to feel "coated", but unfortunately, not in the pleasant way.

A star Bunnerhabhaim

Pretty pretty good
Plenty of flavour and excellent value. Mine cost £26 so what’s there not to like. The sherry notes and higher peat value pack in more complexity than the standard 12 year old that has lost its charm in recent bottlings.

Not for me.

Just don't get this whisky at all, overwhelming taste of raisin, figs and caramel, becomes a little sickly after a while.

Okay, nothing special :/

I find this hard to enjoy.. boring whiskey with taste of halm, some wuird sweet taste and a good splash of salt.. I like the salty part but there's so many better whiskies at this price range.

More sherry than the 12 year old. Fantastic

On first tasting it is like what the 12 year old used to be 2 year's ago. It has the rich first fill sherry that I fell in love with in a bunnahabhain and it does have a very slight salty brine to it in the background. Excellent dram for the price. And apart from an age statement, it ticks all the boxes (46.3%abv, non chill filtered and natural colour)

A very nice Whisky.

Ok - no notes on flavour - simply a comment. At a recent blind Whisky Tasting - from 6 ‘Good’ Whiskies Bunnahabhain Stiuireadair was voted unanimously to be the best. Give it a try !

Very easy to enjoy

Delicious. Sweet, dried fruit, creamy. Christmas spices. Quite like a cognac in a way. Rounded finish rolls on and on.

Great value for money

Nice Bunna for ridiculous money... bargain. First impression, diluted 12yo but give it some time to open up. Apart of obvious cherry palette there’s sweetness, damp earthy notes, nuts and plums. Amazing long fruity finish with some complexity, again great value for money!

Bunnahabhain 12 is better

Very tasty whisky, but for almost the same price you can get the Bunnahabhain 12 with more full body.

Good value expression!

I picked this up after feeling peated out on my trip to Islay. It's just sweet and aromatic enough, but clearly a little fire in the middle and softish raisiny finish. Good value!

Superb quality for the money

Bunnahabhain is one of my favorite distillers and I've had quite a few sherried expressions in the past which I liked, their peated stuff is what I really like and this peated/sherried expression really hits home.
My only disappointment is it's a NAS.
