Bunnahabhain 25 Year Old
70cl, 46.3% abv
Impressively packaged, this is a delicious, reflective dram. It picked up the top prize in its category at the World Whisky Awards 2010. With 25 years ageing, the spirit opens up to a plethora of rich, dark flavours that stay with the drinker long after the glass is finished. The perfect example of how a Bunnahabhain matures.
Colour: Amber gold.
Nose: Sweet toffee, Sherry and polished leather. This is followed by cinnamon and a slight hint of cardamon.
Palate: A full fruit compote coated in cream with caster sugar. Shortly after, developing into roasted malt, chestnuts and stewed raisins.
Finish: Long; lingering for a while after the final sip.
