Whisky Reviews for Bunnahabhain 12-year-old

20 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.25 points

  1. Pollenflug scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Conclusion and pictures on: https://tomtrinkt.de
    • Nose
      My first impression is dominated by pleasant sherry influences and fresh (salty sea air) as well as floral notes. The alcohol (46.3%) is very well integrated and not noticeable. Sweet honey, nice caramel flavors, oranges, cherries, marzipan, lightly roasted malt, nuts, chocolate, spicy oak and a very soft hint of smoke are slowly rising from my glass. The scent is very full-bodied and strong. The beautiful complexity always surprises me again for a "only" 12 years old standard whisky.
    • Taste
      Strong start with a pleasantly oily texture. A slight tingling puts on the tongue tip (pepper / ginger). Sweet honey and caramel notes are immediately present and form the basis of taste. Toasted malt, walnuts, cocoa / chocolate, spices, ripe apples, oranges and dark sherry fruits (plums & cherries) mingle with the sweet foundation. The spicy oak notes intensify slightly in comparison to the nose and round off the aromatic variety with a maritime touch. Deeply hidden in the background, I register again a soft smoky note. The malt is wonderfully soft, varied and balanced. But beware: dangerously tasty!
    • Finish
      Medium to long, spicy-sweet and warm. Mild sherry notes, caramel, malt and nutty chocolate gently end the Bunnahabhain. The spicy oak notes are palpable, but never too intrusive or dominant. I perceive neither bitterness nor dryness on the palate.

    It is simple, but does all the basics well, the higher abv than most standard 12 year is welcome.

  6. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    A very nice 12er, full flavors and nice balance, but rather something for friends of dry Malts!
    • Nose
      Dried fruits extremely, to something very exciting dry, autumn leaves, old chocolate, trail mix, dried apricots, prunes and tangerine, a touch of beautiful sea salt in addition, slightly rustic malt and a hint of smoke from Kokelndem leaves, walnut, marzipan
    • Taste
      Beautiful Sherry influence on the front, prunes, apricots and also cherries, fresh cocoa, very full and juicy,, chocolate, autumn leaves, marzipan, all sorts of nuts, many tannins and barrel, hints of sea salt, dry, dusty furniture, oregano and thyme, a bit Nutmeg and a hint of black pepper
    • Finish
      Dry-sweet, beautiful sherry, red fruits, bitter-dry, dark toffee, cocoa and dark malt, medium to long, surprisingly warm and long for the age

  7. Calmar scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    A young, but very balanced and integrated port mole combining marine and industrial derivatives, becomes sweeter in development, dried fruits appear.
    • Nose
      Restrained, moist, fresh vegetables - Margelan radish, mustard salad, rhubarb; salty marine motifs, a little iodine, industrial textiles.
    • Taste
      Saturated, oily, mineral notes, engine oil, metallic sour, black pepper, light peat and plastic shades, a little creamy-sweet notes.
    • Finish
      Spicy, warming, pickled ginger, sea kale, vegetable notes, metallic taste, green grass, sea salt, black pepper.
