Bunnahabhain 12

Review number 22. This is the last of my drams at Feather’s from two weeks ago. It was quite nice to come back down to a non-signatory, non-exclusive bottle.

Price: N/A in Ontario (Bought a dram at Feather’s Pub in Toronto for 6$)

Region: Islay

Abv: 46.3%

Colour: Medium Caramel

Nose: Wood pulp, a dive club, plum wine, soap, sour candy, far away peat, clovers

Taste: Burnt sugar, lime, chilli, Ketchup chips, oak, plum, floral salt

Finish: Peat, more plum, lime juice, sea air, alcohol burn, pork tenderloin. Medium in length.

Nice finish. It’s almost like a port finished whiskey, however there are…
