D-day, or rather F-Day i.e. Father’s Day is June 19th. and it may seem a long way off but as we well know, “It’s weeks away”, soon becomes “Oh no! It’s the day after tommorrow!”
So if you’re stuck for an idea then the good people at Bunnahabhain may well just have the answer.
The gentle taste of the Bunnahabhain 12-year old single malt could be the way to Fathers Day salvation and a serious number of brownie points!
The home of Bunnahabhain, (pronounced Bu-na-ha-venn) is the world-renowned Isle of Islay on the west-coast of Scotland. Unlike most other single malts from Islay, Bunnhabhain is known for its gentle taste profile and unique character with only a slight hint of smoke.
This is largely due to the malted barley being enhanced by the pure spring water that flows underground, untainted by the peaty moorlands.
It offers a wonderfully fresh and aromatic experience with a subtle whiff of smoke. The palate opens with notes of fruit and nuts that lead onto a malty sweetness, ending in a rich, lingering finish.
And to top it all this award-winning single malt looks rather stunning in it’s black gift tube. Perfect for Father’s Day!
The Bunnahabhain distillery produces three single malts; a 12, 18 and 25-year old. They are all crafted by master distiller Ian MacMillan, who has over 40 years experience in whisky distilling. So the only choices you may have to make are good ones!
So before you resign yourself to just buying the same old favourites (thinks: socks), spare a thought for Bunnahabhain.
He and his taste buds will love you for it!
