Review: Bunnahabhain, 12 year old
The new version, at a higher proof and not chill-filtered. That helped — especially on the palate — with greater texture and more well-defined flavors. But the flavors are essentially the same: nutty, toffee, light molasses, vanilla fudge, with delicate fruit (citrus, dark berries) and a hint of brine and smoke. Very comforting. Extra points for versatility — this whisky will accommodate many moods and situations.
