This hand crafted single malt whisky is brought to you by the Wemyss family.
To create this malty-sweet Islay whisky the blenders have carefully selected 31 hogsheads and sherry butts from several parcels of decades old, unpeated Bunnahabhain casks to blend a single malt with a depth of untold riches.
The resulting whisky has an abundance of cereal rich and dried fruit flavours, an oily, mouth coating body with a subtle saffron spice finish. It has been bottled at 49.1% abv; a strength found to be an ideal complement to the whisky’s flavour as well as being non chill filtered and natural colour.

The eagle eyed amongst you might have spotted the spelling error on Bunnahabhain distillery. It’s unfortunate, but they have chosen to take the more sustainable route not to reprint.
NOSE: An initial aroma of cracked leather, dusty books and antique wood reveals the decades of cask maturation. Dark fruits, maraschino cherries and orange oil all develop like a gourmet Black Forest Gateau.
PALATE: Full bodied and smooth with demerara coated walnuts and pecans mingling with plums, dates, banana bread and stick toffee pudding sauce. Hints of salinity and mineralic notes come through as salted caramel or waxy honey.
FINISH: Mild spice hints of saffron, clove and nutmeg. Gentle wood smoke and salted caramel lingers for many seconds.
