New BUNNAHABHAIN 30 ans 1989 The Little Big Book G&M

BUNNAHABHAIN 30 ans 1989 The Little Big Book G&M 46,3%

Single Malt Whisky, Scotland / Islay, 70cl, Ref: 56678A

Within three years, Bunnahabhain was transformed: a few houses belonging to the distillery were demolished to make space for new warehouses beside the sea, the main buildings were renovated, and a visitor centre was opened during the 2019 Feis Ile festival. With an extraordinary power of persuasion, this magnificent version bottled by the famous independent Scottish bottler Gordon & MacPhail boasts clear hints of peat even though it was created at a time when the distillery produced exclusively unpeated whiskies. This astonishing act of magic is inarguably one of the highlights of a tasting experience that invariably takes you to the Isle of Islay.

The distinguished initial nose is vanilla, herbaceous (cut hay), exotic (pineapple) and saline. Allowed to breathe, it becomes earthy, verdant (pasture) and salty (kelp). The exuberant and jammy (Mirabelle plum) aromatic palette is also rustic (dandelion) and herbaceous (sage). The oily attack is fruity (plum) and spicy (ginger). Very malty, it develops into a more fermentary register. The generous finish reveals notes of violet sweets, before moving into fruity notes (banana, walnut).

Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : vibrant golden yellow.
  • Nose : fine, distinguished. With incredible finesse, the first nose is vanilla, herbaceous (cut hay), exotic (pineapple), candied (lemon, pear) and saline. Allowed to breathe, it becomes earthy, verdant (pasture) and salty (kelp, seaweed). With particular exuberance, the herbaceous register wavers between chamomile, verbena and sage. Increasingly jammy (pear, Mirabelle plum), the aromatic palette boasts radiant beauty. A hint of peat highlighted by wildflowers (daisy, dandelion, buttercup), gradually takes the reins.
  • Palate : lively, oily. The very creamy and vanilla attack is also fruity (plum, William’s pear). With very a pleasant vegetal freshness (nettle, juniper), it becomes increasingly spicy (ginger, grey pepper) and saline. The mid-palate stays close to barley, bringing a malting floor to mind. Acacia honey and cereal flavours pay witness to this fermentary evolution.
  • Overall : long, generous. With Calisson d’Aix and violet-flavoured sweets, the start of finish quickly becomes medicinal (camphoric) and spicy (ginger, gentian). Fruit then arrives with lots of conviction, including pear, pineapple, banana and walnut. The retro-nasal olfaction and empty glass are covered in the smoke rings of a very refined Havana cigar.
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

This independent bottler is without a doubt one of the most highly acclaimed in Scotland. It stands out, not for its age (though it is the oldest independent bottler in Scotland), but for its complete mastery of cask ageing. Gordon & MacPhail is the only bottler to have its own casks - carefully chosen for the purpose - filled by the distilleries themselves, instead of simply buying the ones suggested to them by the latter. This allows it to determine, in advance and with great precision, exactly how many years a whisky will need to reach ideal maturation.
