Bunnahabhain - 25 Year Old - Islay Malt Whisky 70cl Bottle
70cl Bottle £222.91 In Stock
Description: Bunnahabhain 25 year old is delivered in the smoked oak glass bottle but its labelling is on aged parchment and it finds its bed in an Alder wooden box lined with Hessian and closed with solid brass fittings.
This 25 year old has an amber gold colouring with quite a sherried nose, at first, that introduces a stunning sweet caramel dessert aroma, beautifully entwined with subtle suggestions of oak and polished leather. The indulgence of sweet berries and cream ensures a wonderful melange of tastes that progress into a roasted nut and malt feast. The finish is soft and dry with a delicate dispersal of sugar and spiced oak flavours lingering on the tongue.

Bunnahabhain was designed from the start as a high-output malt distillery. Built round a courtyard, in a style that resembles a Bordeaux chateau, the distillery today is little changed. It amalgamated with William Grant and Sons in 1887 to become part of the Highland Distillers group. During 1963 the number of stills were increased from two to four.
Bunnahabhain (meaning 'mouth of the river') shares its name with the village that grew up around it. In effect, development of the distillery created a community dependent upon it for employment. In doing so, an entire village emerged, complete with schoolhouse and village hall.
Prior to the building of the distillery, the adjacent area was inhospitable and uninhabited.
