Peated Single Malt
Bunnahabhain // Islay, Scotland
Bunnahabhain 2008 Mòine Bordeaux Red Wine Cask Matured is was fully matured in Bordeaux red wine casks rather than just being finished in them. The single malt was aged for nearly 10 years before bottling in 2018. Mòine is Scots Gaelic for "peated" so expect this to be smokier than the brand's standard offerings. Bottled at a cask strength of 58.1% ABV without added color or chill-filtration.
Peated Single Malt100% malted barley from a single distillery. Dried with peat.
Cask TypeBordeaux red wine casks
"The aromas here bounce back and forth between meat and fleshy fruit -- beef jerky and watermelon -- but there's a buttery thickness that comes close to creme brûlée because of the smoke. The taste then blows into full English bacon, but that wonderful cream is still there, taking form through bananas and greek yogurt, with added salt and pepper seasoning. This is beautiful."
