Bunnahabhain is a distillery known for a nice core-range and a large number of casks selected by independent bottlers. This practice allows you to taste many different spirits, sometimes distant from the traditional character of the distillery. Today’s bottle is the result of the union of two barrels, 5823 and 5825, selected and mixed by Wilson&Morgan. Wilson&Morgan is a well-known independent Italian bottler responsible for great Bunnahabhain of the recent past.
