Douglas,
I would get lost in the snow if I thought a Saint Bernard might have a flask of 18 year old Bunnahabain around it's neck! Such a flow of warmth through out my body. Among my top 5 favorite

Dennis,
Bunnahabhain 12 is my personal favorite scotch, and the 18-year is exactly what I expected from the extra-matured spirit. The sherry influence is much more prominent, while the caramel and coastal influences are more rounded that its younger counterpart, with less of a bitter and salty smokiness on the finish. The oaky tannins from the extra maturation make it a much drier dram, but overall I find it a much less assertive scotch than the 12-year. I’ve come to realize that the complexities of Bunnahabhain‘s core range belies the ages that are put on the bottles. Truly excellent stuff.

This is a delicious whiskey. This isn't your typical Idlay and goes against the grain of what you might come to expect from the islands. It has a slight hint of citrus with it's healthy dose of smoke of what you might expect from an Idlay, but then transitions to a delicious earthy flavor with a nice balance of sweets and spices. If you are looking to get into Islay's or Islands scotch but find them too Smokey or salty, this is the perfect foot in the door. The price is somewhat steep I know, but I found it to be worth every penny and even bought 2.

Anthony,
nose: salted caramel, seaweed, iodine, minor peat; nose opens up with time palate: oily, sherry notes and a little vanilla finish: lots of sherry, nutty, mixed with smoke and peat, long finish overall: deceptively good. the nose is 2 dimensional but the palate explodes with flavor and balanced notes. very enjoyable

Always question if the price is worth it. In this case it surely was!

Very pleasant with a mellow finish. Right there with the best of them if you are not looking for a peated malt.

Janet,
I believe in the coveted group of select single malts & the very fine select group of single-malts plus full bodied whiskeys hmm . All of these exquisit selections is what makes you want to sit back & put your feet up and slowly sip the evening away..

Sherry, dark chocolate, brine, light smoke. An incredible single malt. After dinner with a $15 cigar = heaven
