Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : vieil or à reflets cuivrés.
  • Nose : riche, profond. Des gousses de vanille, du chocolat noir et de la cire d’abeille forment une première approche particulièrement onctueuse et charnue. Il s’ouvre sur des notes d’oranges amères, de fleurs capiteuses et de fruits secs (noix de cajou, pistache). Avec délice, il se montre de plus en plus salin et exotique (mangue, passion). Une volute de fumée traverse à cet instant la palette aromatique.
  • Palate : ample, concentrée. Avec autorité, elle accentue le registre exotique du nez tout en se révélant herbacée et mentholée. Le milieu de bouche met en exergue, et ce avec beaucoup de maturité, des notes de sherry (toffee, chocolat blanc) agrémentées d’une tourbe très délicate. Des fruits mûrs (mirabelle, poire) lui procurent ensuite beaucoup de vivacité.
  • Overall : d’une grande longueur, elle oscille entre notes acidulées (citron vert) et notes laiteuses (coco, vanille). Des épices font pour la première fois leur apparition (cannelle, gingembre). Elle se prolonge sur la noix fraîche et la praline. La rétro-olfaction est fruitée (mangue) et florale (pivoine,rose) et le verre vide laisse s’exprimer pleinement une tourbe huileuse.
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.

Merchant

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.
