BUNNAHABHAIN STAOISHA 5 ans 2014 S.V 60,5%
Single Malt Whisky, Scotland / Islay, 70cl, Ref: 57720
One can't help but wonder if sometimes, in addition to its almost unpronounceable name, Bunnahabhain isn't trying to actively befuddle us. The whisky is usually not peaty when only the distillery name appears on the label, but its Mòine and Staoisha versions, as worthy representatives of the Islay style, have an intensely smoky flavour profile. Mòine simply means "peat" in Gaelic, while Staoisha is the name of a lake located a few miles from the distillery, in the heart of the island's peat bogs. Distilled in 2014, this Bunnahabhain Staoisha has no reason to be ashamed of its five years of age — anyone would swear it was older. Its character is all but lost: the maturation in sherry casks perfectly complements its camphorated, marine and fruity flavour profile. Slàinte mhath!

- The brand
Although the independent bottler Signatory Vintage cannot claim to be one of the oldest in Scotland, it has managed to build up an extremely solid reputation amongst the great malt connoisseurs. The creator of the famous range The Prestonfield and many other well-known ranges, it is best known for its un-chillfiltered and cask strength bottlings that offer amateurs the chance to enjoy their whisky in its most natural form. It was also one of the first independent bottlers to acquire a distillery and now offers a growing number of expressions of one of the most artisan single malts available.
The Cask Strength Collection of single malt and single grain whiskies is without doubt one of the most appreciated ranges. Each release is bottled undiluted, unchillfiltered and usually consists of a single cask. To help the consumer appreciate their whisky at more than a purely aromatic and gustatory level, Signatory Vintage takes care to display on each label, with great precision, the region of production, the date of distillation and bottling, the type of cask used, its number and the number of bottles of the same nectar that were produced. This range thus offers some fascinating facts, in addition to exceptional quality!
