This Islay single malt from Bunnahabhain has been hand-picked for its depth of character. Aged for 12 years in a sherry cask, this single cask expression is part of Duncan Taylor’s Dimensions range, a collection curated to show the multi-faceted output of distilleries big and small. It is, as all in this range is, free from artificial colouring and chill filtration. It comes at a cask strength 54.7% abv.
This one captures the sea location of the distillery: the nose has hints of sea breezes, along with a nutty, earthy complexion. The palate is full of sweet and rounded flavours, such as salted caramel, lemons, with a grassy note making itself prominent. The medium finish is well-rounded and warms the soul, honey features prominently and is balanced out with a peppery spice. Delectable.
