Bunnahabhain 28 Untold Riches
Notes from Distillery:
To create this malty-sweet Islay whisky, our blenders carefully selected 31 hogshead and sherry butt casks from several parcels of decades old, unpeated Bunnahabhain to blend into a single malt with a depth of untold riches.
The resulting whisky has an abundance of cereal rich and dried fruit flavours, an oily, mouth coating body and a subtle saffron spice finish. It has been bottled at 49.1% ABV; a strength found to be an ideal complement to the whiskies flavour as well as being non chill-filtered and natural colour.
An initial aroma of cracked leather, dusty books and antique wood reveals the decades of cask maturation. Dark fruits, maraschino cherries and orange oil all develop like a gourmet Black Forest Gateau.
Full bodied and smooth with demerara sugar coated walnuts and pecans mingling with plums, dates, banana bread and sticky toffee pudding sauce. Hints of salinity and mineralic notes come through as salted caramel or waxy honey.
Mild hints of spice of saffron, clove and nutmeg. Gentle wood smoke and salted caramel lingers for many seconds.
