This is now in my "top shelf Scotch" list. Not being a peat smoke fan at all, this scotch is just to my liking. Just as the description says it is warm (at 46.3%) but it does welcome with a beautiful smooth complex flavour. Lots of scotches cost this much but don't deserve the price tag as well as this gem..!
I think this the best Single Malt Scotch you can buy at this price, you could spend a lot more and never find the satisfaction you'll find with this Scotch.. A very comforting drink, exactly what I was looking for.
Being a more restrained and virtually unpeated version of an Islay whisky, Bunnahabhain 12 tends to be overlooked - which is a pity! The superb quality (46.3% ABV, non-chill filtered and natural color) brings out the maritime character of this Single Malt. Very engaging, intense and robust on the nose, you get seaweed, iodine, dark fruits and a complex, nutty creaminess. Tastewise, delicate sherry notes and rich toffee harmonize with dark chocolate, walnuts and hints of oak. With a long, sweet and spicy finish, this malt underscores its outstanding quality.

Goes well with and without water. Again a good sherry casking makes for a fruity wet whiskey.Paired with dark chocolate makes for a crackin after dinner.
This was the strongest one in the box this month. Very smooth initially but then it comes with a heavy sherry punch. I love PX and while it's a sweet seasoning it comes across as heavy spice/sherry. This one has character and perhaps it's not the easiest to approach for a newbie, it's like a classy lady - you have to approach it with respect and let it grow on you.
I am new to the world of whiskies, and received my first whiskey loot delivery just before Easter. I am trying to get a taste for whiskey and though this was the best way. I love the packaging, the free chocolates this month (excellent!), the thoughtful tasting notes and journal.I tried this one first. Oh my, I enjoyed it. I'm very new to this, so please excuse my ignorance.It smelt of oak, with a hint of smoke. This swells into toffee/honey, with spice.The taste is strong - still sweet but with strong oak, coffee and a touch of smoke. Burns a little. Not overly complex, oak seems to dominate.Easier drinking with water, but more acidic and less enjoyable.

Really love this flavour. First sip, heaven, second sip, heaven. Third, more of the same? Yeah it's a one trick pony, but credit to it. it nails the trick.
Glad a tried this last. Was so worth the build it. Coming out of the sharpness of the Glenglass this was heaven. Like a warm hug, sherry, caramel, butter and toasted nuts. Love this dram

I have tried way to many scotches, per my wife, but what I can say about this scotch is that its a great smooth scotch which is difficult to not enjoy.
This is one of the nicest whiskies I've tried so far... I've usually gone for 10-12 year malts so was interested to see if I could taste any difference between those and a 16 year one. I think the answer is a definite yes... those extra years add both character and smoothness so if you are aiming to try something a little older and up the range... I really did enjoy this one.
Nose - dried fruits followed by caramel and vanilla with smoke but not overpowering. Palate - citrus flavours smoke and all the dried fruit and flavours one would expect from Oloroso and American White Oak casks. Finish - a well balanced malt, mixed citrus and dried fruits with of course smoke. Possibly a little over priced.
Smooth up front, with vanilla and toffee, then turns complex and smoky, with a definite sherry-tinged finish.
Kilchoman pulls it out the bag again with Sanaig, an excellent whisky at a very reasonable price point - if I blind-tasted this I would swear it was an intensely rich, deep version of Bowmore. Taste profile leans quite towards the sherry side, making this a lip-smacking sherry monster. After an hour could still taste this.
Superb value and interesting flavour from this Speyside distillery. This may be NAS scotch, but looking at the colour and from the taste and legs in the glass, I'd say this is a minimum of 8 years old.
