Bunnahabhain 18 year old Islay Single Malt Whisky 750ml
Creamier than the 12 year bigger too, with broader shoulders and greater depth. Fairly sweet up front, with vanilla-laced malt, chewy toffee, and ripe fruit. Almond fudge and a hint of espresso add intrigue, while dry wood spice on the finish underpins the whisky’s characteristic sweetness. Contemplative and complex. (Vol. 15 #2)
Color: Rich golden amber Nose: Liquid caramel bubbling on the stove, banana cream pie, macadamia nut brittle and the blowing sea breeze coming off the Sound of Islay. Palate: It lies on your palate like heavy syrup that coats your mouth. The flavors are all creamy butter; toasted almonds and Brazilian nuts, fresh pipe tobacco and a sea brininess that is a classic taste of Bunnahabhain. The weight of the 18 year old is very heavy like your favorite blanket on a cold winter's day. The finish is extremely long and warming with just a wee bit of spiciness. What a stunning dram!
