Product Description

A single cask independent bottle Bunnahabhain release from a relatively new company based in Glasgow.

Just 274 bottles released from a Bourbon Hogshead from a 1990 distillation and bottled at natural cask strength of 51.5% and natural colour and non chill filtered.

Nose: Waxy lemon and quince with layers of something softer like melon underneath, some gentle coastal/maritime hints with salty, briny,ginger notes.You may also detect some nuances of lime curd, fresh garden herbs and soft vanilla toffee as well on this very impressive nose.

Palate: Herbal,grassy barley delivery tinged with lime,ginger,melon,waxy lemon,quince, almond and nougart.Oily and firm,dry body with some peppery oak.

Finish: Ginger spice drying into salted,briny almond,lime and herbal notes.Add in some barley squash,white pepper and coconut tinged oak.

A firm and dry Bunnahabhain with a well balanced mix of coastal notes,waxy fruit, spicy oak and herbal/grassy barley flavours.Complex and quite youthfull for its 26 years in that single cask.
