Bunnahabhain Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky 12 year old

The Characteristic bottle is emerald green with the helmsman emblazoned with a golden porthole on the front. In a black gift tube that the bottle fits snugly into.

The taste starts with a light fruit and nut appeal that leads to a spectacular malty sweetness, finishing into a beautifully rich full-bodied, lingering experience

Bunnahabhain 18 year old Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky
The 18 year old is encased in a smoked brown glass bottle with dual labelling to differentiate it from the younger 12 year old sibling. Its gift tube is seaweed green in colour with a subtle but distinct illustration of Bunnahabhain's bay on the front.

The indulgence of sweet berries and cream ensures a wonderful mélange of tastes that progress into a roasted nut and malt feast. The finish is soft and dry with a delicate dispersal of sugar and spiced oak flavours lingering on the tongue.

Bunnahabhain Toiteach Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky
This fine un-aged single malt is a variation on the famous Bunnahabhain Islay Single Malt Scotch whisky. What if a touch of smoke from our peated malted barley was introduced in the distillation process?
