An Islay with quite the burn.
|Whisky||Bunnahabhain 12 Year Old|

An Islay with quite the burn.
smoke and honey on the nose. some oil on the front but finishes with honey, some fruit and floral one the back end. A very excellent undercover scotch from islay.
Wauw. Erg volle smaak veel lagen. Nice
on nose: sherry, raisins, salt, caramel, maritime notes
on taste: sherry, dried apricot, salty and spicy, very light smoke
on finish: medium, sweet, spicy, tobacco, oak
A high-integrity islay scotch. Mild smoke, complex sherry monster.
sweet, red stone fruit, mild smoke, coffee, oily, slighty perfumed, tropical fruit, sultana raisin, ripe mango
arrival is dry, bitter gets more BN intensely bitter right through to the finish. strong wood influence, delicate and complex. pea re s vajilla, sultana, ginger
peppery, sweet and bitter woody drying. A bit of a bruiser but I love it!
Very smooth with the evident sherry taste.
Das ist ein sehr guter Whisky mit Sherry, Malz, Honig, Zitrusfrüchte, leicht floral und leicht nach Rauch riechender und schmeckender Whisky. Zum drüberstreuen noch eine Briese vom Meer. Für mich sehr gelungen und überraschend intensive.
I dont think it is bad, but I generally dont like kind of whisky. It has kind of interesting end, but smell and taste is strange to me. Worst Islay destinnery.
Strong caramel and pepper tasting note, solid finish. The traditional Islay notes come out with a bit of water.
Sherry, pepper, caramel. Sea salt can be discerned after a bit of water is added.
so this was a lovely experience...
Sherry, vanilla, spicy caramel, tobacco, peat, salt and warm feeling when I taste this
Toll! Frisch. passt gut zum sommer. zitrus, Frucht.
Good nose, very smooth, strong vanilla and honey. Very slight spice in after-taste. Great value
strong, would have expected more peat for an Islay, I smell berries but I'm a little bit disappointed to be honest...
Fragrant nose, fruity, honey, hint of plastic. Vanilla and caramel on the palate. Thick and tongue coating. Long finish of flowers and very slight hint of smoke.
Smooth and sweet. Caramelly taste.
Nose: Sherry, caramel, salt, toffee.
Mouth: Oily, caramel, creamy, little salt.
Finish: Short, oak spice. Dry.
This is a very tasty dram. Warming, rich a small amount of sherry with subtle hints of smoke.
good as far as islays go but not a fa of the taste profile
nice with a slight rum flavour
one of the best whiskies on the planet. Salted caramel, creme brulee, toasted marshmellow, vanilla and salt, a tiny touch of peat smoke. drink it all day long
Compare next to HP12
Dried fruit-prunes and raisins, chewy, orange zest
Vanilla with clove and allspice, creamy delicious
Spicy with pleasant heat.
nutty, raisins and herbs smell. distinct cellar stale air and moonshine notes too, but nicely composed.
in taste nuts, sweet leather. hint of pepper and spice. herbal and hoppy finish. it is good simple whisky. maybe too simple
Best Islay whisky I have tasted. Smokey but smooth.
Didn't particularly fancy the 46% alcohol which is on the high side and producing too fiery a taste.
A lot of heat. Short finish. Not great. Think I might have a bad batch
Pepper and heat. Subtle oak flavours
Very nice dram with a fantastic, mysterious sherry nose that falls a bit behind on the palate. Altogether a great entry level Scotch.
Dark fruits with plums, black cherries, spicy with cinnamon, black pepper and nutmeg. Also a nice nuttyness. Very pleasing, sweet and ripe.
Spicy, adstringend and a bit watery (at least not very oily). Red fruits and malt. Little warm woodsmoke. Not as fullbodied and complex as the nose. Almonds and brown sugar. With longer stay in the mouth it becomes salty.
Intensive nutty aftertaste with a metallic bitterness but really nice.
Sweet, colourful, tasty, exelent. 90 is a lot maybe. But I really love this distillery and whisky.
Etwas Schärfe, schön ausgewogener Rauch, fruchtig.
touch of smoke, baby spike, quality. will try more of bunnas stuff
Solid Scotch with balanced smoke and fruit flavor
rokerig door cherryvaten, bijna lakritz
Medizinisch rauchiger sehr ausgewogener Whisky mit langem Abgang und toller Schärfe.
a bit sweeter and smokey than I expected, has a hint of cherry and oak
expected more from bunna
Very nice grainy malt with sufficient body and hints of spice
spicy fine taste
A very intense Whisky with a bit of smoke and an explosion of taste. Sweet and long finish.
spicy notes on the nose easy smooth whisky with some floral aftertaste
always a good bottle.
boozy Sherry finish with faint smoke.
Malty, sweet and intriguing on the nose. Some sherry influence in the background but not too complex. Opens up beautifully with a few drops of water. No smoke, but dried fruit and Christmas cake flavours make this one quite a pleasant dram.
Very fine whisky. Malty/smoky smell at first, sherry as well. Smoky in the taste, but very worthy and smooth finish.
sherry, smoke, malt
Nice colour, dark amberly. Smooth, round taste with small herbs. Little peated in the finish.
lovely fruity (dark berries) with some wood and a hint of medicinal flavour in the back with a nice warm medium long finish. a very decent allrounder that can be enjoyed by the experienced malthead but also a perfect step up for those who tried the usual suspects, and are looking for more
Excellent Islay whisky, less peaty than a Laphroaig or Ardbeg, yet still recognizable as a product of my favorite region of Scotland. A subtle and complex blend of flavors that evokes the maritime nature of Islay, as befits the old sea captain who champions the brand.
Very nice,another falvor of islay.
less peaty and more another falvor.
Drink it will want to eat some food
Peat smoke and the taste of grass and herbs
Nice smooth, a little petey
