Bunnahabhain - 30 Year OldThree Decades of Waiting
As one of Bunnahabhains oldest single malts, this precious 30-year-old dram is the pearl in their shell. Like the abundant shellfish slumbering beneath the surface of Bunnahabhain Bay, it offers hidden depths – and delightful treasures that can only be enjoyed once opened.
And just like that rich undersea harvest, each drop takes patience and perseverance to perfect; three decades of watching and waiting, a unique character shaped by salt-rich air swirling above gently lapping waves.
Every dram is matured in ex-sherry casks under the watchful eye of the Distillery Manager. Only when it is fully formed is it freed from its coastal cocoon; its once-hidden bounty ready to be revealed and revered.
Hebridean waters aren’t usually famed for their pearls, yet once opened, this golden 30-year-old dram reveals a rich and precious bounty alive with sherry and caramel, swirling with berries and cream and a lingering touch of salt and spiced oak.
Colour: Golden syrup.
Nose: Aromas of butterscotch, beeswax and sweet sherry.
Palate: Strawberries and cream dominate the palate, gradually developing into honey nut cereals and an abundance of rich toffee.
Finish: A gentle aftertaste of stewed berries and ginger, with a prolonged and undulating combination of spiced oak and salted caramel.
