Whisky reviews for Buchanan's 12-year-old

One user has left a review for this whisky. Average rating is 87.00 points.

  1. InbhirNis scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    An impressive blend, only let down by its finish.

    The whole does tend to collapse before the 1hr mark though, so don't savour too slowly!

    Weaknesses possibly due to low fill level, just below top of label.
    • Nose
      90 90
      Beautiful old school dusty/waxy, with fresh sharp citrus. Reminiscent of the Rare Malts bottlings, which is high praise indeed.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Rich light sherry, quite delicate flavours but punchy - I was surprised to see the 40%, feels like 43 at least.
    • Finish
      82 82
      By far the weakest aspect, not short but quite bitter/sour.
