Review #785 | /r/Scotch Review #265 – 2007 Bunnahabhain 10 Year Old “Old Particular” K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Whisky
The Schtick: Whew that’s a mouth full. This is an independent bottling via Douglas Laing’s “Old Particular” line for K&L Wines in California. It is bottled as cask strength and is NCA | NCF.
Bottler: Old Particular (for K&L Wines)
ABV: 55.2% ABV
Age: 10 Years
Nose: Yeasty, bread-y. Dole fruit syrup. Faint salinity. Sweet butter cream. Mildly lactic, milkiness.
Taste: Medium mouth feel, honey, yeasty dough, pepper. Faint smoke. Mild heat, vanilla cream, more Dole fruit syrup (think fruit cocktail).
Finish: Long, peppery, lots of sweet cream. Astringency grows, rubbery essence. Faintly bitter.
Overall: This was really great, but began to fall apart in the finish. It was a little harsh. That said, still enjoyable, for the most part.
Thanks for reading!
