Bunnahabhain 12 Year
Peated Single Malt — Islay, Scotland
Reviewed October 6, 2020
The nose is clean and bright with sweet fruit, peaches and cream, dried cherries, vanilla, honey, flowers, and sweet oak. As enjoyable as the nose is, the palate is even stronger. At first the palate bursts with strong sweet flavors of candied apples, star fruit, and salted caramel before brine, sea water, char, and a little dark chocolate begin to overpower the lighter flavors. As the sweetness fades, the sea salt and brine become stronger and control most of the finish. But the sweetness returns again at the end of the long finish with more peaches and cream giving this malt some great contrasting flavors and complexity. Really a beautiful scotch, just another gem from Islay.
54.0 USD per Bottle
Congrats on 100 tastes!
@Ctrexman Mine as well. Maybe I should buy some more before people find out.
@Ctrexman absolutely quality bottling. I got very close to giving it a 5, but thought I'd reserve that for the 18
This is one of my favorite 12 yrs
