Bunnahabhain 12 yo, 46,3 %

Review #50
Northeast of Islay you find Bunnahabhain meaning the foot of the river. The smell of this 12 year old is a bit sweet caramel mixed with some salty ocean notes.

The taste is mostly a mix of sweet notes and dried fruit. The finish is a bit nutty, salty and some toffee notes. This reminds me more of a coastal whisky than a Islay whisky. The peat is so light that I won’t mention it in the tasting notes.

The balance is good, and the complexity is fine. A great whisky and a bit different impression compared to other Islay whiskies, and I love that they keep it at 46,3 %. I will give this whisky 87/100 (21/22/22/22).
