A rare release from an ultra-smoky batch of Bunnahabhain, an Islay distillery which is famous for its usually unpeated single malt. What makes this bottling so fun is that when they make a peaty spirit, they don’t go for half measures: it’s immediately obvious from the first whiff that this is a feast of all the typical Islay flavours. Extremely smoky, ashy, full of maritime notes and a marked medicinal touch, it’s a very clean and malty spirit as expected from Bunnahabhain… but at the same time it packs a wallop in terms of pure “peat power”. It’s also interestingly vegetal and herbal, with rich notes of black liquorice, gentian root. The aftertaste is particularly warm, peppery and lingering, with the smokiness reverberating for minutes after each sip.
