BUNNAHABHAIN 18-year-old 46,3%
Bunnahabhain 18-year-old is a rich, complex and delicate Scottish single malt. Its slightly peated character delivers fruity notes of sherry and citrus drawn during aging in sherry barrels (70%), and Bourbon (30%). This very slightly iodized whisky is of great finesse, with a very beautiful aromatic palette, typical of this Distillery, due to the absence of cold filtration. Bunnahabhain 18 years old will be appreciated as an aperitif, but also at the end of a meal.
Nose : The dominance of sherry is unquestionable. Very fruity and fresh, woody and leathery notes predominate this wonderful single malt.
Palate : Very pleasant and powerful, with very strong aromas. Soft, with spicy notes in which the fruity sweet peat melts.
Finish : Long and rich, marked by sherry, with slightly woody spicy notes.
The Bunnahabhain Distillery founded in 1881 by William Robertson in partnership with Greenlees Bros, is a Scottish distillery located on north side of the island of Islay. Today it has the largest whisky production capacity on the island. The construction of this distillery also triggered the development of houses, a road and also a port in order to ship barley and whisky. Due to its location in Port Askaig, near the sea, Bunnahabhain produces sweet and salty whiskies. Thanks to its equipment and its two pear-shaped stills, this magnificent Scottish Distillery produces a heavy alcohol and which is generally not very peaty. Following the acquisition of the Burn Stewart Distillers group in 2003, Bunnahabhain has since been producing smoked and peated versions of its whisky.
Bunnahabhain means "Mouth of the River" in Gaelic, with reference to its location at the mouth of the strait between the island of Islay and the island of Jura, a real landmark for Scottish sailors, hence the presence of a sailor on the labels of Bunnahabhain bottles.
Bunnahabhain is pronounced Bou-na-ha-venn.
