So this is a bottle of Bunnahabhain 12 (small batch distilled). I don't know much about this new release /packaging. Perhaps, it's just a marketing gimmick. Let's get right down to business.
NOSE: smoke, BBQ, seaweed, caramel. Sea salt minerality, toffee, dried cherries, raisins, cola, used up matchsticks (probably due to sherry sulfur influence), rich cacao. (21/25)
TASTE: sweet, salty, mineral, dry, spicy. Chocolate, milk chocolate, vanilla, fudge, peat, ginger (a lot of it), BBQ again, cherries, cherry cola, creamy dark hot chocolate, licorice,strawberry jam (20/25) A little harsh.
FINISH: long, mineral, vanilla, milk chocolate again, dried bitter cranberries, some pepper. (21/25)
BALANCE: 23/25 SCORE: 85/100 OVERALL IMPRESSION: very pleasant, but doesn't rock my world by any means.
