Bunnahabhain 1997 Dun Bheagan 12 Year Old

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." 

This Bunnahabhain was distilled in 1997 and aged for 12 years in hogshead numbers 5396 & 5399. 

William Maxwell & Co was a subsidiary company of Peter J Russell, who alongside sister firm Ian Macleod & Co, produced a range of blends and independent single malt bottlings. This is their Dun Bheagan single malt brand, named after the castle on the Isle of Skye. Peter J Russell rebranded as Ian Macleod Distillers in 2003, at the same time as achieving their long-held ambition of becoming distillery owners, acquiring Glengoyne, and later, Tamdhu and Rosebank.

One of 1079 bottles.
