If it has been a couple of years since you've tried this, you must give this another go. As with the rest of the line up for Bunnahabhain, they are now bottled at 46.3%, up from 40%, and un-chillfiltered. They use both ex-bourbon and ex-sherry casks for maturation and use a mix of peated and unpeated malt for their whiskies. The peat level is one, if not THE lowest for all peated whisky producers at 1-2 ppm.

Tasting Notes

"With the higher proof, the smoke as does the fruit. Like (back in the day) adjusting the screen on your television to make the image sharper, things just become a bit more clear. Salt and toffee along with wood spices that tingle the tongue show up on the midpalate. The whisky is chewy and filling with a pleasant sherried conclusion."
