Unless you’ve been to the Bunnahabhain distillery and tried some of the whisky straight from the cask, you will not have tried anything like this. This Bunnahabhain 12 Year Old Cask Strength is undiluted limited-edition dram inspired by visitor tastings in Warehouse 9. Recreate the privilege of a Bunnahabhain distillery tour at home. This is presented at 55.1% abv, free from chill filtration, and arrives with a natural cask-imparted colour. Being bottled at cask strength makes the distillery characteristics slightly more intense, with big hits of spice, black pepper, and a general enhancement of Bunnahabhain’s complex signature. A dram with a real sense of heritage.
The nose gives aromas of a bunch of stewed berries, toasted oak, cinnamon spice, creamy vanilla, and lemon. The palate is full of sherried fruit, melted chocolate, nutmeg, cloves, and sea salt notes. A sweet, woody spice awaits on the finish, with a lingering hint of cherries.
