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. The producers deserve enormous credit 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!Tasting Notes (1)
Tasting Notes by Billy A
Briny and earthy, with camphor, apples, sea salt, a hint of oranges and salted caramel.
Syrupy in texture with vanilla and a light smokiness, more woody than peaty. Water brought out more sweet creamy vanilla and some perfume from the wood, as well as some sticky glacé cherry.
Dry with woody spice.

Excellent scotch! At 50 dollars, this is one of the best bang for your buck drams. Actually, it is one of the best under 100 dollars. No chilled filtered, no added coloring, and 46% abv? Seriously,what more can you ask for? I taste sherry, vanilla, smoke and very light smoke. It has peat but I do not taste it. The nose is better with a few drops of water but the taste is best neat. Highly recommend.
Agree with the cherry and wood notes, but I found when left for a few weeks more sherried flavours came through. Not a whisky you would regret buying
End of the night dram.
Ok I bought a bottle today and felt instantly that it wasn't what I was looking for, for similar price range. I've been looking into reviews and stuff for months. But I expected more from Bunna 12, I tried it neat, with a little bit of water.. I let it sit for 20mins. The main thing is, the alcohol note is too high. Trust me, there is a better 12 yr out there. There is not alot of depth of flavours in there either. Time to move on to 15-18 I guess. 2.5-3 stars max.
I really enjoy most Islay malts, the peatier the better. This,though, is a different type of Islay whisky: there's a whiff of smoke but it's mote maritime than peaty. It is, however, very pleasant indeed, especially at 46.3%, ncf and natural colour. There's plenty of fruit, nuttiness and vanilla and the finish is long and one to savour. Much to recommend here.
