BUNNAHABHAIN 1987 B.Bros 46%

Single Malt Whisky, Scotland / Islay, 70cl, Ref: 19846

This Bunnahabhain reads like an open book. Chapter after chapter, it tells us an enthralling tale filled with white flowers, fresh fruits, citrus fruits, exotic fruits, fine spices and salicornia, right up until its especially wordy empty glass that acts as its epilogue. And what about the peat? Well, it sails above an aromatic palette that is enveloped in a thick maritime fog.

Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : bright yellow
  • Nose : refined, deep. White flowers (lily of the valley, lilac), citrus fruit (lemon, grapefruit), coconut and fresh grapes (muscat) burst from the glass. A light, ethereal peat envelopes the aromatic palette in a fine layer of smoke and spice (pepper). Over time it becomes increasingly fruity (pear, apple).
  • Palate : elegant - distinguished even. Heavily influenced by the malted barley but also particularly exotic (mango, passion fruit). The mid-palate then reveals flavours of sweet pastries (vanilla custard, apricot tart). It lingers with notes of cucumber and more aquatic notes like water lily.
  • Overall : mellow, serene. It takes a quick break before delivering soot, lots of spice (clove, nutmeg, ginger, curry) and aromatic herbs (sage, thyme). The retronasal olfaction is saline (salicornia) and liquoricey (green liquorice). The empty glass oscillates between malted barley, tobacco, fresh fruit and chocolate, nothing more, nothing less.
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.



Created in 1698, Berry Bros. & Rudd is one of the oldest wine and spirits merchants in the United Kingdom. Official suppliers to the British crown since the 18th century, the Berry and Rudd family is best known for offering a range of original and innovative products. The London shop located at 3 St James Street is a testament to the history of their knowledge and expertise and known for being home to experts with extremely high standards. In its role as a spirits bottler, Berry Bros. & Rudd selects and bottles high-quality whiskies and rums under the names “Berrys’ Own Selection, “BBR Retro” and “Exceptional Casks”.


The line

Berry Bros & Rudd have been selecting and bottling high quality whiskies and rums under the ‘Berry’s Own Selection’ label for more than 200 years. Doug McIvor, their in-house expert, has a strict philosophy when it comes to selecting the casks – they have to be mature, perfectly balanced and present a rare aromatic complexity. Occasionally, the selected barrel differs from the usual style of the distillery that has produced it, but that is of little concern to Doug, so long as the whisky complies with his rigorous criteria.
