This unpeated single malt is a combination of oloroso and bourbon matured Bunnahabhain, married together in an ex-Pedro Ximénez Sherry octave - the sweetest sherry casks out there.

Nose:Chocolate, powdered ginger and cigar box

Taste: A velvety rich texture, initially creamy milk chocolate then sweet raisins and dried raspberries. As the PX develops balsamic vinegar and honeyed macadamias come through

Finish: Deep and rich , with dark toffee and a final spicy burst of cinnamon

ABV – 50.8%

About the distillery

The Bunnahabhain Distillery is situated on the north section of the Sound of Islay which separates Islay from Jura, overlooking the famous 'Paps of Jura'. A fairly remote and inaccessible distillery, Bunnahabhain was in 1881 and its gaelic name means 'Mouth of the River', a reference to the Margadale river whose clear waters are used to this day in distilling Bunnahabhain Single Malt Whisky.

Unlike most Islay whiskies, the majority of spirit made at Bunnahabhain is unpeated. The distillery has a long-established reputation for a sweet, oily, slightly nutty and elegant style of whisky thanks to their short necked stills and heavy use of sherry casks. Peated Bunnahabhains do exists nonetheless, adding a more classically Islay-styled medicinal, smoky character.
