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.

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

Blended Whiskies are the result of years of craftsmanship and dedication. A master blender does not simply wake up one day with a profound ability to create a cohesive and enjoyable liquid. From nosing the liquid to working out quantities of each different grain and malt to go into the blend, a master blender can take years, if not decades, to train.
Investigating -- and to the surprise and thrill of everyone -- they found a single cask of Whisky in storage that no one knew about. It was now aged a full 40 years.
Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most Single Malts are matured longer, though).
Single malt stands for around 10% of the Scotch market. This is a malt containing only one grain, legally required to be barley in Scotland, and made at a single distillery.

A blended Scotch is a combination of different malts from different distilleries. It is typically made from grain Whisky but does include malt Whisky to give it a more complex body.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
