A single Malt Scotch from the Isle of Islay.
This edition launched in 2010 and brings a jump in strength to 46.3%. It is non chill filtered with no additional colouring added. Unlike most Islay whiskys this one is only lightly peated, which they hope make it a more approachable whisky.
The distillery that produces the spirit sits on the mouth of the river Margadale on the North East corner of Islay. Bunnahabhain (pronounced "Boo-na-ha-ven") apparently means "mouth of the river" in Gaelic. The distillery was established in 1881.
The sample was provided by alfie_cocker_spaniel at the last meeting of neatwhiskeyclub.
Colour: Golden brown
Nose: Light on the nose. Sweet, spicy, some malt and mild peat.
Palate: Slightly cream texture. Toffee, vanilla, banana, oak, dried fruits, mild spice, some sherry notes with a mild peaty flavour.
Finish: Long lingering finish with spice and sweet toffee vanilla.
Overall: A good scotch whisky for the price. Good range of flavours but a bit light on the nose. I'd give this 6/10.
