Are you sure unbound listen on 127.0.0.1? What a 

%sockstat | grep unbound 

shows?

Mine: 
unbound  unbound    527   3  udp6   ::1:53                *:*
unbound  unbound    527   4  tcp6   ::1:53                *:*
unbound  unbound    527   5  udp4   127.0.0.1:53          *:*
unbound  unbound    527   6  tcp4   127.0.0.1:53          *:*
unbound  unbound    527   7  stream /var/run/local_unbound.ctl
unbound  unbound    527   8  stream -> ??
unbound  unbound    527   9  stream -> ??
