Bunnahabhain Ceòbanach Review

This is a heavily peated NAS expression from Bunnahabhain that was matured in ex-bourbon casks and bottled at 46.3% ABV.

Nose: Very peat forward with vanilla, overripe bananas, decaying leaves, and a bit of grapefruit.

Palate: Peat is very strong with burnt rubber, and old oak – quite ashy overall.

Finish: Peat and ashes linger with a hint of fudge.

Rating: 83/100 – Interesting to try such a heavily peated Bunnahabhain, but it’s a bit one dimensional.

Value for the money: I believe this retails around $75, and I would personally pass at that price.
