Tasting note

  • Appearance : vieil or à reflets ambrés.
  • Nose : ample, chargé d’émotions. Du chèvrefeuille, du lichen, du brou de noix, du sel, de l’iode, une terre grasse et humide, de la cardamome, des fleurs de pissenlit… tous ces parfums flirtent constamment avec la tourbe sans jamais s’en imprégner. Décidemment, Bunnahabhain est bien l’un des rares single malts à pouvoir réussir cette prouesse.
  • Palate : ferme et cependant onctueuse. Bis repetita, l’harmonie est parfaite. De l’huile d’olive vient se répandre sur une fine tranche de lard fumé tandis que de la réglisse verte enrobe des fruits exotiques (ananas, kaki), blancs (poivre, pêche) et secs (amande, datte). Capiteuse (lilas mauve, violette), elle devient au fur et à mesure de plus en plus pralinée et vanillée.
  • Overall : longue, sereine. Une odeur de fumée de Havane vient émoustiller les papilles et des plantes infusées (laurier, menthe verte, camomille) enrobent le palais de leurs tanins duveteux et onctueux. Là encore, le charme de Bunnahabhain opère à fond. La rétro olfaction est épicée (safran) et saline et le verre vide chocolaté et malté.
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

The Nectar of the Daily Drams range was born from a passion for Scottish single malts shared by two great whisky connoisseurs, Mario Groteklaes and Jan Broekmans (who founded the Belgium company, The Nectar, in 2006). Young and old single malts stand side by side in this range, whether from well-known distilleries or not. Their research and selection work often draws rave reviews on amateur whisky blogs. One to watch out for!
