A giant leap forward for Bunnahabhain 12yo, this edition was launched in summer 2010 with a jump in strength to 46.3% and a declaration of no chill-filtration and no added colouring.
Briny and earthy, with camphor, apples, sea salt, a hint of oranges and salted caramel.
Syrupy in texture with vanilla and a light smokiness, more woody than peaty. Water brought out more sweet creamy vanilla and some perfume from the wood, as well as some sticky glacé cherry.
Dry with woody spice.
