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.

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!

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.
Patricia
simply glorious
Shana
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
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
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
One of my favourites. A complex whisky that really opens up with a couple of drops of water.
Will
May have become my all time favorite, it is full of fire, with a touch of sweetness. Almost perfect with a long finish.
William
