ISLAY month – 1st week

The Scottish Isle of Islay is part of the southern Hebrides and is inhabited by about 3,228 people. The Isle of Islay is also called Queen of the Hebrides. With 8 working whisky distilleries, the stunning scenery, amazing wildlife and all the friendly people, Islay is a five star holiday destination.

This month we like to focus on some of the whisky coming from this renowned island.

Our first bottle is  a 28 year old Bunnahabhain, independently bottled as part of the Cask Strength Collection by Signatory.

This distillery is often overlooked for some reason, but so far I’ve never had a bad Bunnahabhain. Maybe it is because they often make unpeated whsky, which is rather an exception for distilleries from this island?

This full-bodied Islay single malt was distilled in October 1989 and left to age in a single hogshead cask until March 2018, when it was bottled with an outturn of just 215 bottles.

48,4% vol.alc.

70 cl.
