To retain the classic Bunnahabhain's gentle peat smoke, they use very large puncheons to age the whisky which hold 120 gallons. For comparison sake, a traditional American oak barrel holds a mere 31 gallons. These puncheons previously held sherry wine, but have been used once or twice before so as not to overwhelm the whisky with too much sherry.

Tasting Notes

"The nose is filled with sherry aromas like figs and raisins, but there are also leathery, tobacco notes displayed as well. With time in the glass, this turns to espresso and bitter chocolate. The peat smoke is playing hide and seek in the glass. Brown sugar, cereal, and barrel spices take us through the lasting dry finish. "
