“Although I did not want it, I'm pleasantly surprised
if the 12er also holds no great secrets
he can keep up well with others of his age
and has a pleasant spice combined with fresh sweetness
a nice all day dram
for those who enjoy it” Read more

“Being a more restrained and virtually unpeated version of an Islay whisky, Bunnahabhain 12 tends to be overlooked - which is a pity! The superb quality (46.3% ABV, non-chill filtered and natural color) brings out the maritime character of this…” Read more

“If the 10 is the pure expression of that salty, seaweed type of wet smoke, then this is a more complex and rich, dryer charcoal type of smoke that fills your entire mouth. Overall a superb effort from Laphroaig, considering the price.” Read more

“48%, non-chillfiltered and a solid age statement for (initially) well under 40 € - did this bottling accidentally drop out of a time machine?

Ah, and oh yes: it's delicious.” Read more

“As an addendum, I might add that I find surprising how some manage to rave about its fruitiness. This thing sure has its charms, on the nose mostly, but its fruitiness is ... far from obvious in my humble point of view. Reading things like…” Read more
