- Appearance : bright orangey copper.
- Nose : rich and elegant. Immediately on the first nose, notes of dark chocolate, malted barley and other more medicinal notes (camphor, ointment) clearly take hold of the olfactory senses. After this extremely dynamic and powerful opening, apricot, musk, lime blossom honey and aromas of sage and absinthe bring the aromatic palette lots of complexity and originality. Next, thick smoke rings escape from a Havana cigar with a particularly earthy flavour.
- Palate : frank, invigorating. Wavering between chocolate and spices (clove, cardamom), the attack is also herbaceous (malted barley) and medicinal (sleet, iodine tincture). On the mid-palate, heady florals (broom, mimosa), iris butter and bitter orange appear alongside exotic fruit (mango, guava) and pine resin. The deliciously rich (gianduja, cagé crème) end of the palate restores the flavours of pipe tobacco.
- Overall : long, very energetic. At the start of the finish, the malted barley and sherry have found perfect balance, bringing out all of the complexity of an oily yet floral distillate (lavender, lilac). Later, magnificent oxidation with flavours of rancio (brandy cherries, raspberry brandy) and camphor draw the tasting out infinitely. On the retro-nasal olfaction, roasted pineapple returns to the exotic character of the mid-palate. The fermentary and earthy empty glass is a veritable ode to malted barley. Outstanding.
- 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.
Artist, Lands of Scotland, Malt Pedigree, Tartan, The Ten, Very Cloudy... all of these whisky ranges – composed of single malts and single grains – have one thing in common: they were all created by the team at La Maison du Whisky. They are the fruits of many decades of close collaboration with some of the most prestigious bottlers in Scotland. For some years the French importer and exclusive distributor of the classic ranges of well-known spirits producers, La Maison du Whisky was soon granted the very rare privilege of being able to complement these ranges with their own, bringing together two sets of expertise, two reputations and two complementary histories under one, single label.
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.
