Review #1 - Bunnahabhain 12

I'm not one who can taste the world in a dram of scotch, but I have been smoking cigars and drinking scotch for a few years, so thought I might start my hand at reviewing. So, don't expect me to tell you that something taste like the dew collected from a milkmaid's calves after a walk through the heather or anything like that, but I should be able to give you some basic flavors and an honest opinion.

Bunnahabhain 12 - Served in a glencairn with a splash of filtered water. This mini was gifted to me by a generous friend from work.



(Author's note: My pictures get better than this. Honestly.)

Nose:

Toffee. Caramelish. Lightly oaky. Fresh. Something lightly briny, perhaps?


Taste:

Malty. Slightly nutty, with a little sweetness. Good warmth going down.


Finish:

Lightly herbal? A touch of salty tang. A slight sense of wet seastone at the end.


Summary:

Tasty stuff! I enjoyed it.


Rating: ★★★★

I didn't buy this in the first place, but I would certainly pick this up. A nice dram.
