Review by Bunnahabhain

Colour

Natural Colour, rich gold.

Nose

Smoky peppery nose with hints of dried fruit and grapes, honeyed nuts and rich oak.

Palate

Rich and smooth with a rounded balance of dried fruit, a rich brandy influence and a robust smokiness.

Finish

Long and lingering sweet smoke.

Note

Bunnahabhain 2004 'Moine' Brandy Finish

Un-Chillfiltered, bottled at 55.3% vol ABV

90.00

A limited release and an exciting first for all of us at Bunnahabhain Distillery, with our whisky makers experimenting with French brandy casks to finish our Moine (peated) spirit.

Matured in our warehouses sitting on the Sound of Islay, the whisky has matured for 9 years in Spanish sherry wood and then finished for 3 years in French brandy casks under the watchful eye of our distillery team and Senior Blender, Dr Kirstie McCallum.

The result is truly distinctive, Kirstie has married the rich grape and dried fruit flavours of the brandy with the nutty sweet smoky character of our Moine.

We have added some nice wee pieces of detail in terms of distillation date, bottle numbers and warehouse numbers for those that wish to make the trip to see us to see where their whisky was stored!
