Date of Bottling: 2019
Matured In: 1st Fill ex Sherry Cask
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.
Adelphi exist to identify the very small number of casks that have produced the ultimate whiskies. The criteria for selection include rarity and maturity, but above all flavour. These whiskies are both rare and sought-after – these very special casks are so rare that, on average, Adelphi accepts a mere 4% that it is offered. Each single cask of whisky matures its contents very differently, imparting its own character to the whisky it holds and, as a result, there are never two Adelphi’s quite the same.
This single malt whisky was distilled in 2009 at the Bunnahabhain distillery before being placed in an ex-sherry cask and left to mature for 10 years. In 2019 it was bottled at 58.9% abv as part of the Adelphi Selection.
Only 702 bottles were produced for worldwide distribution.
