This is a rare treat. This single barrel (1st fill sherry Hogshead) gem was hand selected by our friend and local distributor, Marion Dauner. Marion knows her Scotch, so much so that she was invited to join the Keepers of the Quaich – an international society recognizing those who have shown outstanding commitment to the Scotch industry.
Bunnahabhain is unique for an Islay distillery in offering primarily unpeated malts. For those who think Laphroaig or Lagavulin has too much smoke, Bunnahabhain offers Islay’s classic seaside notes coupled with a classic rich, oily texture, minus the smoke. This bottle accentuates all of that with the richness of 12 full years in fresh sherry wood (that’s right, no bourbon casks at all). Dark chocolate notes blend with malt and a red berry sweetness. Non-chilled filtration means all the fatty acids remain and the mouthfeel is extremely luscious.
A great gift for the Scotch lover who has tried everything! But hurry… only 352 bottles exist. Get it while it lasts.
