Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Distillery Bottling 70cl / 56.6%
The second edition of Bunnahabhain 12-year-old Cask Strength, released in Autumn 2022. This is a very welcome addition to Bunnahabhain's lineup, but it's a limited edition and - fair warning - the first version sold out very quickly when it came out in 2021.
Just like its predecessor, this cask strength Bunnahabhain 12-year-old has been matured predominantly in a mix of first and second fill Oloroso sherry casks, with a small proportion of ex-bourbon casks for balance.
This 2022 edition of Bunnahabhain 12-year-old Cask Strength clocks in at a slightly higher strength of 56.6%, and for anyone lucky enough to get their hands on one this will be a brilliant Christmas whisky.
Official Tasting Notes
Colour: Russet gold.
Nose: Initial notes of creamy milk chocolate, red berries and sweet dried fruit are balanced with classic Oloroso spiciness and a hint of cloves.
Palate: Toasted nuts, salted caramel and chocolate covered raisins are intertwined with crisp apple, poached pears and a dusting of cinnamon.
Finish: A sweet long finish with cocoa, cherries and a light sea spray.
Have not opened yet - keeping for Xmas
Great sherry finish whisky. One to savour but you'll find it difficult to refuse "just another one then" Outstandingly moreish.
