Bunnahabhain 12

The fantastic flagship from Bunnahabhain (pronounced boo-na-ha-ven), launched as the distillery's original single malt in 1979, this Bunnahabhain 12 Year Old. It is aged in a mixture of bourbon and sherry casks and, since a relaunch in 2010, has been bottled at a big 46.3% ABV without chill-filtration or additional colouring. Very impressive. Bunnahabhain 12 Year Old is unpeated, unlike most Islay whisky, but has a beautiful coastal quality complemented by its fruity, light, sweet and nutty character. It’s one of those whiskies that newcomers and enthusiasts alike appreciate.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose Fresh, sweet, and a little floral. There’s seaweed, rich malt, dried fruit, camphor, caramel, chocolate orange, and apple poached in cinnamon.

Palate Soft and supple with a nutty, sherried quality leading among vanilla, marmalade, sultanas, and a bright coastal element.

Finish Mochaccino, dried herbs, Christmas cake spice, and a balanced salty tang.

I cracked open a bottle & actually wasn’t sure about it initially. Why ? I hadn’t tasted anything like it previously. This one really grew on me & a few weeks later & half way thro. the bottle…. WOW. Such a full bodied, unique single Islay malt with a very lingering pleasant palate. Now one of my faves.

I shouldn’t like it as much as I do!
Such a fun whisky that offers more than its humble price tag would suggest. Normally I gravitate towards the smoke but I can’t help but love this. Plenty of layers which open up one by one with patience. Once past the whack of sherry and Christmas cake, the spice ramps up and you get hot syrupy poached apple in cinnamon. A little time and the maritime elements come out to play, iodine, woody, barnacley old boats come to mind, the sweet spice becomes cola bottles and sour malty wash… and so on

SHOCK HORROR a previous one star review
Well shock horror at the one star review
Drinking 6-8 years purchase so a bottle of the new batch to compare No difference for me
It is still Bunny12 which I really like/love can see why it is a favourite
Often get comments of is this Islay from guests expecting some peat/smoke
But smoke heads highlanders others the reaction is always this is good whisky
My experience is tyre flavours are tainting from coffee mouth but what do I know

I should have tried the first bottle before buying another two!
I've been drinking single malt whiskies off and on for the last 26 years, and in that time I've never encountered a whisky I didn't like. However, Bunnahabhain 12 year old is the first whisky that I've had difficulty drinking - there is an overwhelming aroma and taste of degrading rubber that masks everything else, save from some sherry in the finish. I offered it to my girlfriend and she said it smelled of inner tubes! I hope the other bottles I have aren't tainted too...
