Bunnahabhain 40 Year Old Limited Edition 75cl / US Import
An austere piece of Victorian architecture on the north-east coast of Islay, Bunnahabhain is a relative outsider on the island, traditionally known for producing an un-peated single malt. The majority of this was used for blending, as was its initial intended purpose. The distillery was shut for 2 years in 1982 following the market downturn of the period, and despite being revived at low production, it was eventually officially bottled as a single malt later that decade, with the self-deprecating tag-line, "the un-pronounceable malt."
An impeccable piece of craftsmanship, this Bunnahabhain has been matured for 40 years in 'Turney casks' - filled by Glasgow wine merchant, J.G. Turney.
These casks had actually been forgotten about by the distillery until their were discovered by their master blended in the ledgers, and subsequently uncovered in their warehouse.
