Bunnahabhain 2022 Abhainn Araig Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky – Feis Ile 2022 (700ml)
Volume: 700ml ABV: 50.8% Age: No Age Statement Country: Scotland
The Bunnahabhain Distilleryis 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 Feis Ile is a yearly whisky festival held on the island of Islay on Scoitland’s West coast. The vent takes place each year and during the event each distillery on the island releases a special limited release bottling to celebrate the occasion. This year at Feis Ile 2022 Bunnahabhain released three unique bottlings. Usually only available at the distillery however this year we’ve managed to get our hands on a few of these wonderful Scotch single malt releases.
Bunnahabhain has released this limited edition single malt whisky for the Feis Ile 2022. It’s been given the Scots Gaelic name Abhainn Araig, meaning “Araig River”. This river can be found in the north east of Islay of which is flows through peat bogs and and extensive peat cuttings to join the Margadale River at Bunnahabhain. The whisky was created using a combination of ex-bourbon casks and ex Pedro Ximénez sherry octave casks made from European oak. Bottled at 50.8% ABV and limited to a very small allocation for Australia.
