Bunnahabhain Scotch Single Malt 18 Year is a Cinderella story if there ever was one … lightly peated and delicate, complex and refined, it is a must for every whisky-loving prince.  

Bunnahabhain distillery was constructed in 1881 by the Greenlees brothers, and first opened its doors in 1883. It's located on the island of Islay, with 11 employees and four massive stills – among the biggest in the industry, alongside Glenmorangie.
 
In this tale, the part of Prince Charming is played by Ian MacMillan. Ian is the Master Distiller for the Scotch Whisky arm of Distell Group, who own the Bunnahabbain distillery. Under Ian’s guidance, Bunnahabbain has transformed itself from a production-focused distillery to a quality-focused one. These days, chill-filtering is taboo, and so is coloring or anything else artificial. 
 
Cinderella is the Whisky itself. Bunnahabbain is rising from obscurity in a forgotten corner of Islay. And this little beauty cleans up good. Lightly peated, beautifully aged in sherry butts, and ready for her premier at the ball in a glass slipper … or a glass snifter which would likely be a better choice. If you are a fan of Islay Whisky, this one is your ticket to happily-ever-after.

In “Islay Gaelic,” Bunnahabbain means “mouth of the river.” And indeed, Bunnahabbain sits at the mouth of the Margadale River, whose source is a spring that provides the water for the Whisky.

Lovely smooth sweet flavor with a pleasant mouth feel, almost run-like.

Absolutely love it, not alway fond of Sherry but this is well balanced with a touch of smoke and a long finish. Will be one my favorites.

One of my favorites, I always have a bottle in the cellar.
Graham
Very pleasant with a mellow finish. Right there with the best of them if you are not looking for a peated malt.
Janet
I believe in the coveted group of select single malts & the very fine select group of single-malts plus full bodied whiskeys hmm . All of these exquisit selections is what makes you want to sit back & put your feet up and slowly sip the evening away..

Sherry, dark chocolate, brine, light smoke. An incredible single malt. After dinner with a $15 cigar = heaven
