Tasting notes of SlàinteMhath:

10. Oct 2016
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.
RATING: 4.0/5.0 ≙ 88 pts
