    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.

    Bunnahabhain 12 WID: 122708
    Abv. 46%, Sherry Butts & Bourbon Barrels, OA
    Nose: full and stimulating saliva, honeydew melon, caramel, wine gum, currant jam, sweaty apples, fine sweetened herbal tea
    Taste: intense sweetness, honey, vanilla, grape must, really great, but a few years more are certainly great, I'm looking forward to the 18s
    Finish: short and sweet, raisins, dates, creamy latte
    Conclusion: For a standard OA really a delicious and very fair priced droplets. He will surely find his way to my shelf, but before that I really have to try the 18s

    I can't think of any other whiskies this age of better value.
