Well, what can I say about Bunnahabhain 12 year old? Nothing bad, that's for sure. Good dram and amazingly good for a "sherry whisky".
Like tasting something from the Speyside region, except having the Islay air feel in the nose. Smooth and balanced in every step.
Bunnahabhain 12 yrs was as steady as an old school Hollywood actor. Like Marshall Will Kane (played by Gary Cooper) in "High Noon", calmly stepping around his own town. You just know everything is going to be all right.
Nose: Sweet wine and peat. Fresh breeze of Islay air without the smoke. Malt and mild sherry notes.
Taste: Wine and sherry mix. Sweetness turns into nice spices.
Finish: Sweet wine and spices clash nicely. Salty.
Balance: Everything is in order. Very consistent dram that doesn't offer any surprises but is good all the way. Very subtle, was this from Speyside?
