— I love Sherry Cast, so if you like it too you'll love Bunnahabhain 18. Great finish, very smooth.
— Wonderful, delicious, smooth, buttery, creamy, mellow, delightful. I destroyed this bottle. My first Bunnahabhain, does not dissapoint. Would gladly buy again. A super mellow yet deliciously complex flavor that would be great to introduce someone to delicious whiskies while also wonderful for the sophisticated palate.
— Very nice smooth whisky. Sweet notes of fruit up front with mild brine and smoke on the finish. Very mild smoke and peat. A favorite

Best birthday present ever. Absolutely loved it.
Very nice smooth whisky. Sweet notes of fruit up front with mild brine and smoke on the finish. Very mild smoke and peat. A favorite
Sweet upfront with a spicy nose and finish
Couldn’t find a better whiskey if you like Islay. Velvet glove meet iron fist.
That’s all I can say
I bought it to try it and it’s awesome
Will buy again
Easily one of my favorite Scotches ever. The flavor profile is complex, but each flavor is distinct. AWESOME BOTTLE!
Superb. Hints of peat blend with leather, fruit, spice--hard to separate the tastes in this wonderfully, deftly woven complex whisky. Saw some negative reviews online--don't understand that at all. Just great!
I would get lost in the snow if I thought a Saint Bernard might have a flask of 18 year old Bunnahabain around it's neck! Such a flow of warmth through out my body. Among my top 5 favorite
Bunnahabhain 12 is my personal favorite scotch, and the 18-year is exactly what I expected from the extra-matured spirit. The sherry influence is much more prominent, while the caramel and coastal influences are more rounded that its younger counterpart, with less of a bitter and salty smokiness on the finish. The oaky tannins from the extra maturation make it a much drier dram, but overall I find it a much less assertive scotch than the 12-year. I’ve come to realize that the complexities of Bunnahabhain‘s core range belies the ages that are put on the bottles. Truly excellent stuff.
This is a delicious whiskey. This isn't your typical Idlay and goes against the grain of what you might come to expect from the islands. It has a slight hint of citrus with it's healthy dose of smoke of what you might expect from an Idlay, but then transitions to a delicious earthy flavor with a nice balance of sweets and spices.
If you are looking to get into Islay's or Islands scotch but find them too Smokey or salty, this is the perfect foot in the door. The price is somewhat steep I know, but I found it to be worth every penny and even bought 2.
My fav scotch. The smoothest I’ve tasted, sweet, mmm.
nose: salted caramel, seaweed, iodine, minor peat; nose opens up with time
palate: oily, sherry notes and a little vanilla
finish: lots of sherry, nutty, mixed with smoke and peat, long finish
overall: deceptively good. the nose is 2 dimensional but the palate explodes with flavor and balanced notes. very enjoyable
The 18 year is the pinnacle whisky, hands down. It’s smooth while still retaining some spice and boldness.
Always question if the price is worth it. In this case it surely was!
Nice complex sweet taste. Would be better without the salty finish.
What's not to love?
Fabulous, complex flavour but sooooooo smoooooth and tasty
Lovely smooth sweet flavor with a pleasant mouth feel, almost run-like.
Absolutely love it, not alway fond of Sherry but this is well balanced with a touch of smoke and a long finish. Will be one my favorites.
Smooth , tasty, amazing
One of my favorites, I always have a bottle in the cellar.
Very pleasant with a mellow finish. Right there with the best of them if you are not looking for a peated malt.
I believe in the coveted group of select single malts & the very fine select group of single-malts plus full bodied whiskeys hmm
. All of these exquisit selections is what makes you want to sit back & put your feet up and slowly sip the evening away..
Sherry, dark chocolate, brine, light smoke. An incredible single malt. After dinner with a $15 cigar = heaven
