Description

FULL DESCRIPTION
With possibly the lowest peating levels possible, 1-2ppm, a combination of ex-bourbon and ex-oloroso sherry casks are used to age the 18-year-old. Warming and rich, this malt shows you a completely different side to Islay.

TASTING NOTES
Appearance: Rich mahogany.
Nose: Christmas spices, dried fruits and roasted walnuts.
Taste: Salted toffee, raisins and dried red fruit.
Finish: leathery wine tannins, oak and white pepper.
Overall: It’s almost as if you’re drinking a Speyside malt and the person next you is drinking an Islay, only the faintest hint of peat.

Gift

A warm welcome for sherry cask enthusiasts and an opportunity to branch out of their usual comfort zone. If you constantly find yourself surrounded by Islay fans and wish you had something to talk about, this is the whisky you’re looking for.

RECOMMENDATIONS
If the person you’re buying for is a fan of the Bunnahabhain 18, you could also try Highland Park 18, Jura 16, or Talisker Port Ruighe.

Connoisseur

If you wanted to sum up what makes Bunnahabhain different from other Islay distilleries in two points, it would be sherry casks and almost no peat.

ABOUT THE LIQUID
