Picked up the top prize in its category at the World Whisky Awards 2010. Bunnahabhain 12 year is a very lightly-peated malt that serves as perhaps the mildest introduction to the Islay style.
Bunnahabhain 12 Year Old Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky has been re-introduced as an un-chillfiltered spirit, a move which has excited whisky lovers and experts from across the world. With the move to un-chillfiltered, the packaging has been revised to complement the new expression. Smoked oak glass has replaced the traditional emerald green of the 12 year old bottle, with dual labelling conveying an overall sense of speciality, subtlety, confidence and luxury, reinforcing the premium quality and heritage of the brand. A revised neck label has been developed displaying the product’s age. The bottle is presented in a quality gift carton containing a booklet with information on the brand.

The new version, at a higher proof and not chill-filtered. That helped — especially on the palate — with greater texture and more well-defined flavors. But the flavors are essentially the same: nutty, toffee, light molasses, vanilla fudge, with delicate fruit (citrus, dark berries) and a hint of brine. Very comforting. Extra points for versatility — this whisky will accommodate many moods and situations
