Established in 1881, the Bunnahabhain distillery has developed a unique style inspired from its legacy. Its philosophy is to offer the most natural whisky, almost completely hand crafted and aged on the famous Isle of Islay.

Bunnahabhain means the “mouth of the river” in Gaelic. It is located at the mouth of the river Margadale, on the strait that separates Islay from the Isle of Jura, in the north. It has always been a famous land mark for Scottish sea-farers coming back home. The mariner we can see on each label of Bunnahabhain whisky is inspired by this anecdote.

Bunnahabhain is a noble, light and delicate whisky characterized by an exceptional mellowness and a hint of peat. In the beginning, the distillery produced an oily, peated whisky with its own malting house and its peat kilns to dry the malt. Only in 1963, with the arrival of new owners, the distillery turned to a non-peated, malted barley from which originates the fruity, spicy and maritime character of the whisky, without any peat. Over the last few years, the distillery rediscovers its legacy with the limited editions of highly peated whiskies such as the Cèobanach, meaning “smoky mist” in Gaelic, succeeding to the “Toiteach”.

Colour: deep gold.

Nose: rich, refined with malty notes, evocative of pastries, brioche and honey. A marine influence with seaweed and seaspray, opening on thick, dew-covered humus, with a marked return of baked fruits (apple, oranges) and dried fruits (almonds).

Palate: mellow, appealing and quite refined. The sweetness of barley extends the scents with sherried flavours: raisins, hazelnuts and cumin. 

Finish: of satisfactory length, with a marked return of fruity aromas. 12 Year-Old Bunnahabbain is not the most typical Islay malt but share a beautiful character and personality.
