Bunnahabhain Warehouse 9 Tasting

It’s now Day 2 of my Islay expedition and this one will be quite a more arduous journey then any other distillery tour I’ve experienced here on Islay. Not because of the distillery experience itself but because of it’s extremely remote location being the northernmost distillery on Islay.

Bunnahabhain Stiùireadair

Bunnahabhain Stiùireadair?is a new NAS release from Bunnahabhain. It’s sherried, using both first fill and second fill sherry casks.

Bunnahabhain SMWS 10.106 “Salted lemon sherbet”

Thanks to Tim W. for the sample. For the past few weeks, I’ve been intermittently posting my results of an Advent Calendar that my wife put together from my samples. It’s Day #21. All of the whiskies were done blind. All of them I should have known. The only hint I was given, eventually, is they were in the order of lower abv. to higher.… Continue reading Bunnahabhain SMWS 10.106 “Salted lemon sherbet”
