Bunnahabhain 18 Years Old Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)
Volume: 700ml ABV: 46.3% Age: 18 Years Old Country: Scotland
The Bunnahabhain Distillery is the most northerly and remote on the island of Islay and was opened in 1883 to make use of excess grain from local farmers. The name Bunnahabhain translates as ‘mouth of the river’ and if you ever visit will see that the distillery is built near the mouth of the River Margadale which flows into the Sound of Islay. Pronounced Bú-na-ha-venn, this Islay Single Malt Scotch whisky is quite distinct from the many others on the island, given the wonderfully gentle taste profile for which it is known. Water is piped in from from Margadale Springs and the whisky is distilled twice in the distillery’s unusual pear-shaped pot stills
The single malt is highly rated by whisky connoisseurs the world over. It has received numerous awards and accolades over the years. The production method was recently changed as the distillery decided to bottle this 18 years old whisky without chill-filtration and no colouring is used. An unpeated whisky from Islay that delivers dried fruits, toffee, spices and rich honey nuttiness with a hint of sea salt. Simply stunning.
