The best of Bunnahabhain & Islay in one dram. 

Bunnahabhain Distillery was constructed in 1881 by the Greenlees Brothers on the island of Islay where the Jura peninsula reaches out to meet it across the Sound of Islay. Where most distilleries write paragraphs about the smallest historical detail, Bunnahabhain doesn't talk to much about their past. But over the years, production levels and quality fell. That all changed when Distell Group bought the distillery and put things under the direct control of master distiller Ian MacMillan. Under Ian’s guidance, Bunnahabbain has transformed itself into a quality-focused one where single malt Whisky evils like chill-filtering and artificial coloring are taboo

Bunnahabhain is first and foremost an Islay single malt, and that means smoke. The word “toiteach” actually means “smoke” in Gaelic. But Bunnahabhain as a rule is milder than its more aggressive Islay neighbors, so don’t be scared off by the name. This dram still has the more gentle, fruity character it’s known for, but with a smokier bite than its sisters. Think about it like a peach cobbler that was cooked a bit too long. 

Smartass Corner:
"Bunnahabhain" translates as "river's mouth,” and that makes sense the facility sits just a few steps away from the spot where the small Margadale River empties into the Sound of Islay.

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).

Shelly,
This was wonderful - it was smooth, smoky, and had the perfect amount of vanilla! Definitely enjoyed sipping on this one.

Derek,
I liked the idea of a smoky scotch, after this I shall steer clear of the smoke. To me, this was more of a distillate of something in the barnyard that was burnt and then smothered by wet wool. The after taste seems tediously long. I've enjoyed Highland Park Dark, Oban, Arbelour and MaCallan 12 more than this.

Casey,
Very smoky, maybe just a bit too smoky for my taste and a strong bite. Otherwise very flavorful and great after a long day at work.

Michael,
Wow. Just wow. I love a good complex Islay, and this does not disappoint. Sweet, peppery, salty, smoky, truly wonderful. The balance is delightful and the finish is long and superb. Buy this now. A steal for the price.

Joseph,
This is by far the smoothest scotch I have ever had the pleasure of tasting. I was going to share this with a couple of friends, but decided against the it since I am selfish. I will definitely order another bottle.

Wanda,
Over 50 year's of loving Single Malt Scotch, this one won the highest award with my husband. He loved it and we ordered more!

Kenneth,
Brilliant! Almost perfect balance between smoke, salt, and fruit. i usually find beverages above 42% ABV too "hot" to enjoy without water, but this is the exception. Perfect just as is it. Enjoy!

Christian,
This was one of my first bottles of scotch, and oh my what a bottle to start with. The description fits it perfectly, smells like a charcoal smoke, tastes like freshly grated peppercorns, and nails the landing with a fruit flavor. Open for special occasions.

Wowza. Adding to top faves list. Redefines peat in a sophisticated and enticingly smooth way. From nose to palette to finish, it's a beautiful journey meant to be shared for truly special occasions.
 
Frank
Frank,
This is a really robust Scotch Whisky. It has prominent smoky peaty flavors with a long smooth finish. It reminds me quite a bit of Lagavulin 16 year old Scotch as comparison which doesn't disappoint by any means. I am a fan!
 
Brandon
Brandon,
A superb expression. The Bunnahabhain provides complexity like an avalanche of honey. Sweet from the start, balanced by a mature peat that is never sharp or overpowering. Tall notes of leather with a lingering apricot finish. Absolutely a top five scotch for me this year.
 
Robert
Robert,
One of my favourites. A complex whisky that really opens up with a couple of drops of water.
