Bunnahabhain 12 Year Old Reviews
Tasting Notes by Billy A
Nose: briny and earthy, with camphor, apples, sea salt, a hint of oranges and salted caramel.
Palate: 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.
Finish: dry with woody spice.

Lovely and smooth with a hint of peat but not overly so. A lovely whisky to sit in front of a roaring fire with. To Mr A. Hunt - I imagine you're taste buds have been shot to death with cheap low grade alcohol
A thoroughly plebian product. Low-grade rotgut, with a hint of peat smoke, nothing on the phenol count, and a rough body. Hints of cork and dirt, marginally more palatable with water.
A good price and very different taste compared to other Isley whiskys out there. It's not the smokiest of its kind but one that has an iteresting yet pleasant taste about it. It's a good one for the collection!
Scotland my haim - as is bunnahabhain the only drink for me - (please note it is whisky wi' out the 'e') A fine point, but this is to fine a malt to be called 'whiskey'.
Just my taste - smooth, rounded and a hint of smoke
Makes for a wonderful dram after a long days work. A few drops of water really unlocks it, and it is a fabulous introduction to the Islays for those (like myself) who are used to Speysiders. The hint of vanilla smoke and sea salt beg for this whisky to be enjoyed on a rocky shore in the cool autumn.
For the price, you can't beat it! One of my favourite whiskys A beautiful smooth scotch with a creamy smokey fruity texture and a fabulous long finish. Just buy it and try for yourself.
I love the Bunnahabhain 12 year old!! Every time I fly and land in a good duty free shop (the ones in USA - SUCK!), I look for the Bunnahabhain. Its just a touch smokey but so smooth that it will make you want to slap your.....(insert whomever). I was introducted as the lowest peaty level scotch on the market. I love some peat just not anything like Laphroig or the like. To me B gets me both worlds a bit of peat but not so over powering that kills the experience.
I basically blind tasted it. I got coastal with fruit Blackberries.
I''m writing this in the wake of my mother''s passing last night at The mighty age of 92. Sitting in her study after an evening with my 3 sisters reminiscing, and sipping this 12 YO, which I bought to open with my bro-in-law because my surname, Hain, makes up a third of "Bunnahabhain". A world away from the old 12, and reminiscent of a dry sherried Speysider with added seasalt. . I call this the "Islay Mortlach " and pour myself a third, or is it a fourth?
