    Takes time and can handle 20 gtt water to round off the flavor a little.
    Full-bodied pleasure after the Juras or Glen Els tasted today, it beats them all.
    Maritime power, paired with oak spice, vanilla, nut, sherry flavors, creamy sweetness and a tiny hint of smoke - simply a great 12yo and probably one of the best 12yo I've had in my glass so far.
    Long, warm finish that beautifully conveys all the joys of nosing and tasting.
    The nosing on the empty glass also conveys a lot, especially the smell of the sea - really great

  5. Scherenschnitte scored this whisky 79 points Expert Junior

    I’m a sucker for value bottles but this didn’t speak to me at all. Hard to judge based on an old mini bottle but I wouldn’t shell out for the full OB 12 given my experience. ⁣
    • Nose
      Warm salted nuts, toffee, raisins, grapes, honey, oak.⁣
    • Taste
      Toffee, spicy oak, fig jam, tons of salinity.⁣
    • Finish
      Maltiness, woody notes, lingering saltiness.⁣

    • Nose
      Caramel, nutty, some sherry
    • Taste
      Full, nutty, light vanilla, pepper, sea salt
    • Finish
      Long, dark chocolate, spices, coffee

      You should have tried it.

    How can you give the whisky 100p?
    I mean, easy to drink ... yes,
    relatively cheap, yes ...
    But that's it.
    Some pear, some oak.
    And he is gone.

    Not bad but more mainstream than the previous edition of this Bunnahabhain 12yo which I prefer over this one because it was much more maritime.
    • Nose
      Woody, nutty, salty, maritime, little toffee
    • Taste
      Punchy, woody, rather dry, nutty again, pretty oily and mellow
    • Finish
      Medium long and burning
