We last visited the Rare Casks range with a Caperdonich 17 Year Old. A fine malt indeed and this one is no exception!
As usual, this malt is an exclusive, limited edition release using the finest whisky from one of Scotland’s greatest distilleries. It is sure to become highly collectible.
This Bunnahabhain is a 2nd release in ‘The Rare Casks’ series and has been bottled in its natural form, at full cask strength, without chill filtering or colour additives.
Due to the rarity and difficulty in obtaining Islay Whisky casks only 96 bottles are available for this release so I’m guessing stocks will not be available forever.
If you’re tempted into buying this malt (who wouldn’t be?) then I’d do it sooner rather than later.
Tardiness is not recommended!
Bunnahabhain 23 Year Old:-
Distilled: 1989 (refill bourbon barrel.)
Number of bottles: 96.
Bunnahabhain 23 Year Old
The Rare Casks
|Nose: Sea scents, woody, sweet vanilla.
Palate: Light, fresh feel. Twang of grapefruit, peaty and dry. Faint licorice coupled with sharp pepper.
Finish: Smooth smokey sweetness, fresh fruits with a dry lemoney finish.
Overall: A smooth, lovely malt from Bunnahabhain. Rich in flavours and styles. A delight from start to finish. A malt you’ll be reaching out for, ” .. just one more dram ..”, again and again!
Many thanks to Abbey Whisky for this sample.
