The Bunnahabhain distillery on Islay is probably the most isolated, yet also one the most grand and attractive buildings of its kind on the island. The distilleries water is piped down from streams on the Margdale Hills and is considered less peaty than most water used for distilling on Islay. Owned by Highland Distilleries, the operation remains firmly set in tradition although the company now imports its own raw materials. The brand's labelling is reminiscent of Bunnahabhain's coastal setting, and utilizes words and imagery from the ballad 'Westering Home' (to Islay.) The poetry is more romantic than the reality - there have been 250 recorded wrecks around the coast of Islay including that of a large trawler which has lain nearby the Bunnahabhain distillery for over twenty years! Nevertheless, the charm of the label remains undiminished.
Bunnahabhain's 25-year-old initial release runs to just 400 bottles and comes presented in an Alder wooden box lined with Hessian and closed with solid brass fittings.Tasting note: Deep gold / polished brass colour. Plenty of oak influence in the estery opening sniffs, with the aroma deepening to stewed pear / apple pie and vanilla. The accent shifts towards light ginger before the final pass after over five minutes in the glass releases surprising notes of Turkish Delight. Medium dry delivery with the lively spirit gently nipping the tongue; mid palate is delicately peppery with a grainy / oatmeal-like edge and an oily finish. Outstanding length. Demonstrates serious staying power as light cocoa and oatmeal biscuit flavours carry into the aftertaste. Ageing slowly, one senses this could easily go another decade. 46.3% Alc./Vol.
Other reviews... 'this is the business. Quite superb.' 93 points. - Jim Murray's Whisky Bible
Nougat and dates to the fore, then becoming increasingly nutty with suggestions of Demerara rum and cinnamon and underlying polished leather. Lovely dried spice notes and an appetizing salty tang teases the palate on the finish. 43.0% Rating: 90 points - www.maltadvocate.com (2nd Quarter 2006 Issue-Vol. 15#2)
