Bunnahabhain 18 Years Old – 2018

Bunnahabhain 18 Years Old – 2018

Bunnahabhain 18 Years Old – 2018 800 450 Federico Bosco

The Bunnahabhain distillery, located on Islay in Scotland, has been offering well-known malts all over the world since 1881. First of all, the distillery stands in front of the sea, the warehouses overlook a small gulf giving a unique view. A peculiarity, that distinguishes the distillery, is the low use of peated malts, often used for limited or very young editions, while the core-range products are not peated. This 18 year old, previously labeled with a Roman number to indicate its age (XVIII), has undergone a packaging change.

  • Casks: ex-Sherry
  • Age: 18 Years Old
  • No. of Bottles: not declared

TASTING NOTES BUNNAHABHAIN 18 YEARS – 2018

Nose: a remarkable complexity emerges. Ripe fruits, both red and yellow: strawberry, cherry, apple and apricot. Then dried fruit, still apricot but also dates, with a more vegetal and fresh side, mainly celery. Spices, white pepper and cumin, complete the flavor profile.

Palate: balanced to perfection, it repeats many notes that already emerged on the nose like ripe fruits, mainly cherry and apple, then dried fruits combined with a few spices, such as white pepper and saffron. Medium intensity. Very round and elegant.

Finish: medium intensity, with a good persistence. Red fruits, black pepper and paprika, with a touch of sweet wood.

The Bunnahabhain 18 Years Old – 2018 might not be an Islay’s style peated whisky, this malt convinces in terms of intensity and complexity. Compared to previous releases, the quality has not diminished, underlining the consistency of this product over the years.
