Whisky Review: Bunnahabhain 2007 12yr Palo Cortado
Bunnahabhain 2007 12yr Palo Cortado / 55.1%
Tasted neat, then with mineral water
Another Bunnahabhain Palo Cortado vintage, straight from Warehouse 9. 12 years old, from cask number 18, this is a nice 55.1% and hopefully an excellent companion to the other vintages I’ve been enjoying this last year.
- Color: mahogany (1.6)
- Nose: spice, sandalwood, citrus, dark rum, oak; yeasty bread and chocolate
- Taste: raisins, dry sherry, wax, vanilla; with water, pine oil, creosote, and malt
- Finish: more spice, medium icing sugar; toffee
This is a lovely dram, but it’s not quite as brashly complex as some of the other Palo Cortado matured Bunnies I’ve had the pleasure to try.
