    For years not been a big fan of Bunnahabhain by tasting a (bad ..?) Sample of one of their expressions. And I have regretted this ..

    Picked up a bottle for 12 years at the local liquor store in December 2019 and, oh my, how good this stuff is!

    A very delicate and balanced whisky. Sherry tones, nuts, raisins. Good alcohol percentage, not sharp, perfectly drinkable without adding water.
