Whisky Tasting Notes
Bunnahabhain 12 Year Nose: Briney coastal air gently rolls up, while your burning matches get soaked in the rain. You recite Gaelic poetry from a damp notebook, with a tear in your eye.
Bunnahabhain 12 Year Taste: An oily, forceful 46.3% sherry tsunami that crashes with a surprising syrupy softness. A spice firework blooms and then vanishes, leaving a malty tang, flavours of hot nuts with very little peat for the region. It’s not the most complex of drams, but it’s honest and characterful.
Bunnahabhain 12 Year Finish: A medium-long finish with a more than respectable smoothness for its price point and alcohol volume. There’s a soft salted liquorice touch, with a splash of Dr Pepper sweetness.
