Bunnahabhain / Murray McDavid

Bunnahabhain 1978 Mission Gold (Murray McDavid) Review

Bunnahabhain 1978 Mission Gold (Murray McDavid) This dram was part of the Murray McDavid tweet tasting a while back, I unfortunately missed the tasting and have caught up since.

A single cask 1978 Bunnahabhain who wouldn't love that!!! I just can't hide the fact I really love the thought of this dram, I've really enjoyed every single cask old Bunnahabhain that I've tried so this has me seriously excited.

This is seriously yummy. Lots of fruity raisins and apricots, sweet and juicy, with a sugar and chocolate coating, this is very very tasty.

Thanks again to Murray McDavid for including me on this tastin
