Bunnahabhain 18 Years Old 70cl 46.3°

Distillery : Bunnahabhain / Country : Scotland / Reference: : 21988

18 Year-Old Bunnahabhain is a quite refined, un-chillfiltered Single Malt that expresses the complete gustatory palette of the distillery. Delicate and distinguished, this whisky is exceptionally round with a whiff of smoke.

The light iodine notes of Islay combine perfectly with rich caramel, honey, nuts and oak wood. The whisky reveals also mellow aromas of Sherry, obtained through the long maturation process.

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: golden amber with ginger glow.

Nose: quite rich, expresses all the diversity of a Bunnahabhain whisky with honey, fruity aromas (green banana, mango, oranges), precious wood, green almond and nuts. An edge of sea and iodine.

Palate: a supple attack with rich notes of almond powder, nuts, light smoke and banoffee pie. A beautiful blend of woody aromas reveals the influence of Sherry.

Finish: dry notes of spices, bitter chocolate and citrus fruits end up beautifully on slight notes of salt and Sherry.
