Not expecting this to get above freezing, but this whisky is rarely reduced to this price (generally £100+) and last time was almost exactly one year ago. Natural colour, non-chill filtered and distilled at 46.3%.

Not for most people's budgets...but it's getting nearer to Xmas, so treat yourself!

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Salted caramel leading to sticky toffee pudding sprinkled with nutmeg. With time a leathery quality emerges.

Palate: Dense, rich sherried notes perked up with a coastal saltiness. On a second wave roast chestnuts emerge and gentle wood spice.

Finish: Woodspice becomes mixed spice. The finish is warming and lengthy; salt and sherry towards the very end.

Overall: Bunnahabhain without chill-filtration is dense and oily and shows off its sherried credentials with ease.

Lovely drop this 👌
It's a good whisky, perhaps for someone special or a special birthday.
I'm a big fan of the 12, only ever tried the 18 once at a whisky show and, against the 12, I didn't think it offered the same bang for the buck. If this was £10 cheaper then I'd jump, but still too rich for me. I think the biggest problem is it's phenomenal younger sibling.

Interesting, I'm enjoying the 12 and want to try the 18 at the right price. But when I ask myself would I sooner have 3 bottles of 12, or a single bottle of 18? It's difficult to justify. But this is a good reduction off the recent price, so hot.
I also think the 12 outshines the 18! Quite an appealing price for the age though.

A lot of whisky on sale before black friday, hoping ardbeg corryvreckan gets discounted soon

Interesting. I have a bottle of the 12 year old on the go. I love it, toffee almost.
I'd be tempted to try this for Christmas, but as others have said..... should I just get 3 of the lovely 12 y.o.

How to pronounce Bunnahabhain...

This is a fantastic whisky and well worth this price,i had a bottle a couple of years ago before it was "rumoured" to be running out,hence the price rise,i picked it up on a deal for around £67
I love the 12 year old, I would live to try this 18, but I've bought several bottles this week already as the deals keep coming, maybe I'll drop a hint to the kids as a Christmas box . Heat added.
I am sure it tastes amazing but not cheap, after all the end results are the same...
Great stuff, yes the 12yr is cheaper, but it’s got nothing on this

I've always pronounced it with a v in place of the bh, almost sure I learnt that from a bottle of it
It’s pronounced ‘boon-a-ha-bin
In Ireland we would pronounce it as
Bun-a-how-in

Meaning something like "start of the river" or "source of the river".
Thanks .bought a couple for my gp.

he remembers this and it helps

It's sort of phonetic if you ignore some letters
