1989 Berry Bros & Rudd Bunnahabhain 29 Year Old Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)
We're fortunate to have secured a very small parcel of BBR's Bunnah' at a massive discount from the Australian wholesaler. Do your homework and you'll see this is selling for closer to $600 elsewhere. These single cask Doug McIvor selections are known for their consistently high quality. A sister cask of similar age received a strong review from whiskyfun.com. One parcel only.
Bunnahabhain translates as “mouth of the river” from the Gaelic, the river in question being the Margadale which flows into the Sound of Islay near the distillery. Although generally known for a more lightly peated Islay, this expression is an exception, produced as it was from a batch using barley at a higher level of peat-smoke.
Notes from the bottlers... Nose: Noticeable smoky notes with a little marzipan, some jute cloth and spice. Palate: Fruity palate is layered, rich with building sooty intensity as the flavours displayed on the nose develop. Finish: Beautifully intense with a classy, lingering finish. 43.4% Alc./Vol. Non chill filtered.
