Bunnahabhain 18 Year Scotch
"94 Points. Liquid Gold."
The Whisky Bible
Our 18 year old Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky is now enjoying its full potential as the re-introduced unchill-filtered spirit: a story that has excited connoisseurs across the globe.
With the move to unchill-filtered malt and a higher strength of 46.3%, this remarkable 18 year old has more than earned some new packaging.
Hinting at the tales the liquid within has to tell, the label highlights the move to a natural colour and an unchill-filtered process. Similarly, the bottle is now presented in a quality gift carton containing a welcoming booklet with information on the brand.
A nose and a taste of this tells more than a book ever could. The beautiful golden spirit’s aroma releasing honeyed nuts and a slightly sea-induced salty tang. Rich toffee and leathery oak notes can be sensed upon further reading, while the palate tells of mellow sherried nuts and shavings of the finest natural oak wood.
Its story ends very happily, with dry notes interspersed with mixed spices fading magnificently into a light salt and sherry finale.
