A giant leap forward for Bunnahabhain 12yo, this edition was launched in summer 2010 with a jump in strength to 46.3% and a declaration of no chill-filtration and no added colouring. Enormous credit goes to Burn Stewart for giving punters what they want without jacking up the price too much and we earnestly hope that this will be a massive success. Bravo!

this is fantastic whisky the extra strength(46%) the non chill filtration and no added caramel make for an excellent nose and taste sherry, choclate ,nuts ,brown sugar and no peat which is not the norm for islay.
Out performs alot of more expensive whisky.

Further to my previous. I have just got back to drinking this and it has an outstanding taste. I will not be without this one.
I would rate this as outstanding in its class/price.

An absolutely fantastic single malt. The taste experience makes it superb. This is a drink anytime whiskey.
- Joel, 27th March
Not sweet, very smooth and very good. It is not like other Islay malts. I would recomend this to drink anytime. The aroma is not strong but the taste is great.

Got two years ago just opened it. Slightly peaty taste not overpowering. Slight sweet flavour. I give it an eight out ten for experienced scotch drinker.

New to whiskey, what with trying Glenfiddich, glenmorangie and glen livit. Have to say that this whiskey is fantastic. Plenty of flavour with an awesome after finish. For the price, it's a corker.

This slightly stronger malt has a greater intensity to it yet does not overwhelm the richness of the flavour. Whilst it doesn't have quite the smoothness of the original, it is by far one of the best and most drinkable and enjoyable malts I have ever tasted.
- Kieron, 27th Sep '12
the only whisky I will drink, superbly smooth and full of flavour. This is something special, keep it hidden at the back of the drinks cabinet for special friends, or when toasting your toes infront of the fire winter times.

This is a outstanding whisky!, plenty of sherry influence and peat and vinilla notes, don't take any notice of the malt snobs out there that rattle on about what "real Islay" whiskies are, just because it doesn't taste like a bonfire doesn't mean you're not getting an authentic Isaly experience, after all it's distilled on Islay and you're not going to get more authentic than that.

I was introduced to this whiskey 19 1994 by a friend and loved it since - it was one of the few whiskeys I never get bored of drinking !!

Recommended this by bar staff at the Kilmartin Hotel, Argyllshire last week. Smooth, gentle on the palate, yet with enough edge to declare its Islay heritage. Looking forward to the bottle my wife has ordered for my birthday. Who said true romance was dead!

Fantastic and smooth, plus easy to drink
- JJF, 25th Feb '12
Just ordered - looking forward to it based on the comments here...!

Full on dram with sherry, a little smoke and brown sugar. topped off with tannnings at the end. Really good for the money and a regular in my house.
- Martin, 8th Feb '12
As the world of whisky disappears up its own chuff with folk paying astronomical prices for packaged nonsense, raise a glass of this as an antidote. Great dram for reasonable money.
- Smedlet, 1st Feb '12
Appearance: Bronze. Nose: Sherry, coffee creams, toffee. Palate: More sherry, mint coming through, after eights, dark chocolate, brown sugar glazed bannanas, Armenian brandy. Finish: Non-chill filtered fist in a very velvet glove. Surprising tasting notes for an Islay Malt! Really enjoying this new bottling.
- The Flying Scotsman, 6th Dec '11
Finally picked up the new bottling; a vast improvement.
- rwbenjey, 17th Nov '11
Very different than the older presentation, but quite similar to new 18 yo. Much more sherried than I expected, but lightly salty and seaweed like Bunna is still there. Excellent stuff.
- Mikko, 3rd Sep '11
It?s a wonderful whisky! But buyers beware! Do not expect this to be a typical peaty islay. It?s the most unpeated islay whisky your likely to find. So if you?re looking for the finallic peaty blast, look elsewhere. But if you want a quality whisky, that?s different from your Highland Parks or your Glenfiddichs with creamy vanilla, golden barley, luminous, tart, sherry, and a big salty maritime nose. Then look no further malt mates. Highly recommended!!!!

It reminds me a bit of Glenfarclas 15 YO on the nose, but the taste is definitely different, me likes!
