News: Bunnahabhain Ceòbanach

Old school Bunna shrouded in mist 

  • Bunnahabhain Distillery
  • Batch 1
  • Bottled2014
  • 46.3% ABV

Bunnahabhain Distillery will present shortly a new whisky. Very little is know at this moment. It will be a limited edition with an unpronounceable Scots Gaelic name, bottled at 46.3% ABV, unfiltered and natural colour. The whisky matured for over ten years in ex-bourbon casks.

Ceòbanach means smoky mist But most of it is still shrouded in mist...

This  Ceòbanach is a celebration to the intensely peated "old style" Bunnahabhain from the late 19th century.

Tasting notes from Bunnahabhain

The nose is intense and pungent, with hints of fragrant smoke and light tar, and creamy notes of sweet oak and seaweed.

The initial taste is one of sweet maltiness, then a lovely balance of a tangy smokiness and vanilla notes, blending mellow and smooth. There are also hints of white pepper, bitter orange, liquorice and sea salt.

The finish lingers, with flavours of oatcake and sea salt once more - with a peppery sweet smoke undertone.
