Bunnahabhain 18 Year Old, 46.3% abv
The Bunnahabhain 18 Year Old is one of the distillery’s most awarded Single Malts and once you’ve tasted it you’ll understand the wealth of gold medals it has received. The deep mahogany colour of the whisky gives away the exclusive Sherry cask maturation and the tang of salt on the tongue reminds you of the distillery’s coastal location. With their warehouses positioned along the shore and a bay fed by the Sound of Islay, there is no escaping the salty sea air, especially when you’re maturing by it for 18 years. Fragrant with notes of dried fruit, rich honeyed nuts, toffee, and slight hints of spice on the nose; notes of mellow sherried nuts, dried fruit and rich oak, with toffee and a slight tang of salt on the palate; with a dry fruit finish with a hint of spice and salt.
