The first Bunnahabhain I had was the 12 year old. I had heard good things. There was a community review. Why not, right?
I was let down. And it bugged me, as others enjoyed it quite a bit.
Since then, I’ve had more and more Bunnahabhain, and I’ll say this: Don’t judge it based on the 12. If anything, it set the bar low for me to enjoy many others from the distillery.
Take, for instance, Bunnahabhain SMWS 10.104 “Wild and untamed”, which is a peated variety. I’ve enjoyed (and swapped for) many older Bunnahabhains, however I don’t ignore the young’ins. Because as we learned from Anakin Skywalker, you have to take them out too.
So let’s see how this more peated, younger offering does, shall we?
