Bunnahabhain 12 Review

Distillery: Bunnahabhain
Expression: Bunnahabhain 12
Category: Single Malt Scotch
Region: Islay
ABV
: 46.3%

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.

Bunnahabhain 12 Tasting Notes

Color:  Late-autumn brown
Nose: Sherry, creamy butter, powdered cinnamon, vanilla birthday-cake icing, almond, floral notes.
Palate:  Toffee, Nutmeg, vanilla, light-peat, hints of tobacco.
Finish: Near-perfect length. Quite pleasant. Slight sting without anesthetizing your tongue and electrocuting your taste buds

Score: 82 / 100
