The Whiskies of Islay — Bunnahabhain
Bunnahabhain 18 years old 46.3%
The nose on the Bunnahabhain 18 is truly incredible - huge notes of rich honey, nuts, old leather, dried fruits and a hint of sea-side smoke. A distinct umami (the Japanese word for 'savoury', think soy sauce and dried meat) character and a truly to-die-for rich dark chocolate flavour push this whisky in to a league far beyond what its age and p...
Bunnahabhain 'Gordon & MacPhail' 2006 / 2016 43%
The Bunnahabhain distillery produces one of the most mild and unpeated whiskies on Islay, forgoing the heavy peat found elsewhere on the isle.

Bottled from sherry casks from the Bunnahabhain distillery, this is not dominantly peaty at all - rich and sweet with sherry cask fruitcake notes, with vanilla, a touch of orange marmalade...
