Bunnahabhain 1989 27 year old (Cadenheads)

Bottle: Cadenhead’s authentic collection standard bottling.

Nose: Lemon freshness, sea air and dusty books.

Body: Light and a little chalky.

Palate: Initially floral and buttery, then salty, then sour fading with some lime zest.

Finish: Good length with lots of mineral notes, some menthol and Lemsip!

Neat/Ice/Water: 41.9% neat.

Verdict: Superior. What a great dram this is! Really fresh and effervescent in body and texture. A lovely, creamy, citrus mix with coastal undertones throughout. It has a certain ever present sweetness that balances out the inherent tartness. Luxuriously drinkable, I highly recommend it if you stumble across a bottle. Released in the summer of 2017 with an outturn of 192 bottles only. Release price was £120 which was fair for the quality of the whisky on offer.
