Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : Vieil or à reflets tuilés.
  • Nose : Racé, conquérant. Tour à tour enracinées ou vaporeuses, les notes de tourbe diffusent une sensation de liberté et de vérité. Une acidité pointue ramène à l’influence du sherry (discret au demeurant) tandis que le feu crépite sous la cheminée prés de laquelle est posée une corbeille de fruits frais et d’agrumes.
  • Palate : Magistrale, sûre d’elle. Ses fruits sont gorgés de sucres et ses épices sont d’une grande douceur. Vive, minérale (schiste), elle évolue sur des notes florales (bleuet, violette), épicées (gingembre) et le zan.
  • Overall : Sereine, pleine de dynamisme. Elle révèle un Bunnahabhain dans toute sa splendeur, onctueuse, terreuse, saline et laiteuse (coco, vanille). De plus en plus capiteuse (lys) et fumée, ses notes de cendres évoquent un havane en combustion.
The brand

The brand

Built in 1881 in the midst of the Scottish “whisky boom”, Bunnahabhain is located on the north-east of the Isle of Islay. The stillhouse houses two magnificent pear-shaped stills that produce a heavy spirit that generally has low levels of peat. Owned by the Burn Stewart Distillers group since May 2003, Bunnahabhain recently began releasing extremely peaty and smoky young whiskies through independent bottlers.


Although the independent bottler Signatory Vintage cannot claim to be one of the oldest in Scotland, it has managed to build up an extremely solid reputation amongst the great malt connoisseurs. The creator of the famous range The Prestonfield and many other well-known ranges, it is best known for its un-chillfiltered and cask strength bottlings that offer amateurs the chance to enjoy their whisky in its most natural form. It was also one of the first independent bottlers to acquire a distillery and now offers a growing number of expressions of one of the most artisan single malts available.

The line

Baptised ‘Artist’, this new range makes no bones about proclaiming its identity. Cosmopolitan and contemporary, it draws its inspiration from the style that gave the Italian bottlings of the 60s and 70s their cult following. From the choice of whiskies (distillery, ageing process, age, strength, bottling procedure) to the design of the bottle and choice of label, every detail has been carefully considered. This range offers a fine presentation of both the whiskies and the artist whose works have been selected for the back labels.
