Bunnahabhain 12 Review
Expression: Bunnahabhain 12
Category: Single Malt Scotch
Hard-core Islay fanatics should take heed because this is not your typical peat-monster.Yet it IS an interesting / intricate bottle that seems to get better from dram-to-dram.
It feels a bit more like a high-quality blend than a single malt because it feels like you get a pinch of Campbeltown here, some Islay there, etc. Kinda reminds me of a sweeter and slightly more complicated version of the Bruichladdich Laddie Ten.
As a young, entry level single malt, it’s surely worth a gander.
