product Details

Bunnahabhain 1986 21 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."

A Bunnahabhain distilled in 1986 and bottled on 17th of April 2008.

One of 512 bottles.

Signed by the Distillery Manager at the time, the late and great John Maclellan.
