Bunnahabhain 11 Year Old Discovery

Unlike many independent bottlers Gordon and MacPhail don't just buy casks of already mature whisky. Instead, because of their years of experience and knowledge, distilleries allow them to buy spirit straight from the stills which is then matured in specially selected casks and monitored for the full maturation by Gordon and MacPhail. This 11 year old Bunnahabhain is one of those bottlings having matured for 11 years in sherry barrels.
Staff Tasting Notes


Nose: The sweet toffee and wothers originals that are the heart of any good Bunnahabhain are there. A comforting and welcoming vibe, reminders of fireside sweeties when we were wee. The is a floral touch of heather snaking in too.


Palate: Very similar to the nose with all the toffee sweetness you could hope for. There is more of a floral backbone and a dry woody finish, but the toffee is still there.


Official Tasting Notes


Nose: Sherry aromas mingle with orange marmalade. Dried fruit notes develop; subtle spices weave through creamy vanilla toffee.


Palate: Deliciously smooth and creamy; a gentle warming cinnamon spice matures into flavours of chewy dates and stewed plums with walnut undertones.


Finish: Smooth milk chocolate with lingering dried fruit and hints of nuts.

Bunnahabhain has made the most of the remote location that they decided to build the distillery on.
Bunnahabhain distillery flies under the radar a little, in comparison to the other distilleries on Islay.
Although Bunnahabhain is known for being one of Islay's few non-smoky whiskies they do create a peated spirit now and again.
This unnamed Islay single malt was distilled in 2008 and bottled 11 years later after spending some time in a fresh American oak barrique and a finish in a 2nd fill Oloroso sherry octave.
An exceptional bottling of Bunnahabhain, originally released in 2002. This whisky was distilled on 31st December 1968 and bottled after nearly 34 years.
Lovely and oily, with a dash of sweetness. A gift for those that like Springbank and Islay whisky, as long they are ready for balance, but less smoke.
