Bunnahabhain 1989 25yr Treasurer (Robert Graham) Review

Bunnahabhain 1989 25yr Treasurer (Robert Graham) I was lucky enough to have been invited along with my friends at EH10 Whisky Society (@EH10Whisky) to Robert Graham's (@WhiskyCanongate) Canongate store for an intimate tasting of some of their recent bottlings.

The second dram of the evening was this Bunnahabhain 25 year old from the Robert Graham Treasurer range which is a range of single cask bottlings at cask strength with no added colouring and non chill filtered.

Limited to 228 bottles this dram is subtle to the nose, and really hides the beast of a dram that it is on the palate. The nose grows the deeper you can get your nose into it, although it's light and subtle, the palate is the opposite with a big up front arrival with lots of leathery peat and pepper and fruit mixing

This is a fabulous dram, and shows the beauty of single cask bottlings and how they can be so complex and yet so much of a pleasure to drink.

You can buy this dram online from Robert Graham now.

Tasting Notes & Details

Nose

This is very light on the nose, freshly scraped Madagascan vanilla pods,hints of a light peat / char, fruity rowntrees fruit gums, oak woodiness with edges of sugary whipped cream (like the stuff on your mocha at Starbucks) a hint of menthol and a dash of light syrup

Palate

Lovely sweetness first, then a barrel load of peat roars up and explodes across your senses, a tingle of spices, very sea salty, leathery with some hints of gentle sherried dried fruits and a waxy, oily mouthfeel

Finish

leathery, lots of salty starchy chip shop chips with oriental spices and menthol
