Bunnahabhain is without a doubt one of Islay’s best-kept secrets. Might its relative lack of renown be due to the fact that, until 1997, it produced a single malt which, unlike the island’s other malts, was unpeated? Almost definitely!

Nose : refined, complex. Exotic fruits (passion fruit, mango, pineapple), a pinch of curry, nuts (walnut, hazelnut), other spices (nutmeg, cinnamon, cardamom), dark chocolate, coffee and beeswax follow one after the other in an incredibly subtle first olfactory sequence. Allowed to breathe, the sequence moves into more stewed flavours (apple), whilst citrus fruit (mandarin, orange) brings a refined acidic note.

Palate : clean, lively. The very lively attack literally breaks through the aromatic palette. Liquorice stick, cinnamon and cocoa create a slender and powdery trio of flavours. Outstanding! On the mid-palate, tonka beans appear alongside a delicate malty and herbaceous (fern, sage) bitterness. Fruits then come back in force, with banana, William’s pear, pippin apple, Mirabelle plum and quince... The heady end of the palate is characterized by notes of hawthorn, carnation and dahlia.

Overall : long, full of serenity. All the aromas and flavours experienced so far mix together to create a rustic, spring landscape. Bit by bit, malted barley grains, rosemary, kiwi and clove bring lots of tone to the very end of the palate. The very herbal (bergamot tea) retro-nasal olfaction is extremely refreshing. The empty glass is slightly peaty, vegetal (tobacco) and balsamic (pine, cedar).
