Being a more restrained and virtually unpeated version of an Islay whisky, Bunnahabhain 12 tends to be overlooked - which is a shame! The superb quality (46.3% ABV, non-chill filtered and natural color) brings out the maritime character of this Single Malt. The nose is very engaging, intense and robust with seaweed, iodine, dark fruits and a complex, nutty creaminess. Tastewise, delicate sherry and a rich toffee note harmonize with dark chocolate, walnuts and a hint of oak. With a long, sweet and spicy finish, the whisky underscores its outstanding quality.

Nosing: Loveley complex fresh and fruity nose with vanilla, butterscotch and hints of sea

Taste: Initially strong pepper in the back of the tounge which develops in to a long sweet taste of sherry, vanilla and toffe with just a hint of bitterness. Very good balanced

Finish: Long and sweet, slightly dry in texture

Comment: Complex and rich in both nose and taste. Mellow and round in perfect balance. One of the very best 12 year old I had so far.
