Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : vieil or.
  • Nose : dense, profond. Tout d’abord laiteux avec ses notes de croûte de fromage, il prend cependant rapidement des accents beaucoup exotiques (ananas, kaki). Il évolue sur le pétale de rose et le miel de bruyère. Finement sucré, il devient de plus en plus floral (lilas, muguet). Il est à noter que l’ensemble est plus charpenté qu’il n’y parait au premier abord.
  • Palate : douce, équilibrée. A l’instar du nez, il émane d’elle une puissance à laquelle on ne s’attend pas forcément. Quasi aquatique (nénuphar, roseau), elle devient plus gourmande (tarte citron, meringue). Du chocolat et des amandes la font bifurquer vers des contrées plus amères. Cependant, elle reste d’un bloc, très compacte.
  • Overall : longue, liquoreuse. Les amateurs de Jurançon et de petit manseng vont particulièrement apprécier ses notes de miel (acacia), de fleur d’oranger et d’abricot. Elle s’alanguit sur un épais tapis de mousse. Champêtre, elle a les pieds sur terre.
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.


Established in Glasgow in 1948 by Fred Douglas Laing, the Douglas Lang company has, in recent years, made numerous changes to its structure. Fred Laing’s movement to the head of the company has contributed towards the business’s sound reputation. Known throughout the industry for the quality and variety of its cask selection (Douglas Laing still has casks from the most prestigious distilleries: Glenfarclas, Talisker, Ardbeg, etc.), the company has expanded its already rich range that includes historic selections such as Double Barrel, Premier Barrel and Director’s Cut, with two new collections guaranteed to please connoisseurs: Single Minded and Old Particular.

The line

Launched in 1998, the Old Malt Cask range, consisting of 50 casks, was bottled to celebrate the 50th anniversary of this family-run business. Today more than a hundred releases are permanently available. Most of these are single casks that have been bottled without colouring or filtering and contain 50% ABV; they are considered to be the ‘golden strength’ by purists. In addition to the traditional releases at 50% ABV, there are some cask strength bottlings, created especially for La Maison du Whisky.
