Day 20 - Bunnahabhain 12 Year Old

Happy Thirsty Thursday!

Day 20 sees Chris continuing the 12 year old trend with an all-time classic dram from Islay distillery Bunnahabhain.

(not up to speed on 25 Days of Drams? Catch up with our introduction and all the days so far here)

Here's Chris talking about what makes today's dram special:

Recap: For each day of the 25 (we're Christmas day drammers here at the Dram Team), I'm going to give a few brief reasons I think each dram is worth your time and attention - which are the same reasons I picked each one to be in our boxes in the first place. And, we're giving away the full set of drams:

Reasons why Chris recommends this whisky:

Reason 1 - It's on the short list for "Chris' favourite Islay distillery", and not just because it's not a spadeful of heavy peat like some other distilleries (not his favourite style, despite wild popularity!). Really rich complex drams and the 12 is a classic.

Reason 2Its name is super fun to say. Pretend to be a jovial German person and go for bhuna (like the curry) and haben (like harbour, but ending "en") and you'll be close :-)
