Bunnahabhain Stiuireadair single malt pays homage to the distillery’s shoreline on the north-east coast of Islay. They used whisky matured in first and second fill Sherry casks, with a leaning towards deliciously coastal malt.
Bunnahabhain Stiùireadair is a sherried release from Bunnahabhain, intended as a partial replacement for the 12-Year-Old. A typically creamy and coastal whisky with notes of caramel, nuts, dried fruit and hints of spice.
Nose: Brine, toasted sugar and caramel-drizzled raisins.
Palate: Honey-roasted nuts, cinnamon and clove, with a touch of salt sea too.
Finish: Sherried peels and chilli-chocolate.
What some of our whisky enthusiast friends have said about Bunnahabhain Stiuireadair
Quote 1 “Great taste and aroma, it takes a bit of time to savour it but then all the aromas are coming up, let it in your glass to breath a few min and enjoy !”
Quote 2 “The sherry casks really do a number on this whisky. This won’t be to everyone’s taste but I liked it a lot. The merest drop of water opens it up nicely bringing out a puddingy dried fruit flavour. As Islay malts go this is very different, but that’s no bad thing. No age statement – no problem.“
Quote 3 “Very nice Whiskey, full rich flavour but without the smoke which makes a change from the smokey Islay whiskeys which I usually go for.”
