The Whiskey Noob review Bunnababhain 12

Bunnahabhain 12 Year Old

A Whiskey Review by The Whiskey Noob


I’ve decided to buy my first bottle of Islay Single Malt Scotch…

This Bunnahabhain 12 was pretty good and had a light hint of peat, but I was expecting more especially since it’s an Islay scotch…

It’s a good bottle to try for those transitioning to more of the peaty scotches, but not overwhelming to the point where it kicks u in the throat…

It actually has a decent flavor profile that opens up the longer you let it sit out.

All in all…good, not great…but not bad for the price (~$45+) and a good Islay scotch to start off with if you dont want the strong campfire taste…

It has a good price, decent taste and it is pretty easy to find.  I think I’ll just end up adding this to my list of daily drinkers.

It’s been pretty easy to find  I’m hoping I end up finding this at Costco so I can just go ahead an buy the shit in BULK!

That way I can save money by buying a a few cases at a time right?  It’s all about the savings!  I’m doing whats best for my bank account, the economy, and the environment all at the same time because you know…I care so much with my ginormous whiskey filled heart…

Well…that’s what I’m going to tell my wife anyway…

Cheers ma’ noobs!
