Bunnahabhain Stiuireadair Sherry Cask Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)
Meaning 'Helmsman' in Scots Gaelic, 'Stiùireadair' is the first Bunnah' Limited Edition to pay homage to the Bunnahabhain Helmsman who adorns every label. It comes matured in first and second fill sherry casks with spirit of varying ages in the mix. Non chill filtered. 46.3% Alc./Vol.
Other reviews... A no age statement Bunnahabhain destined to replace the existing 12 year old, matured in first and second-fill sherry casks. Raisins, fruit spice, furniture polish, and roasted nuts on the nose, along with an edge of brine. Rich and full-bodied in the mouth, with malt, sweet sherry, and cotton candy, plus cloves and a sprinkling of sea salt. The finish offers red berries, lively spice, and dark chocolate. 90 points - whiskyadvocate.com, reviewed by: Gavin Smith (Spring 2019)
...Although the sherry influence is clear of any sulphur content, the grape never comes across articulately on this, either on the nose or the delivery. 83.5 points - Jim Murrays Whisky Bible 2021
