These are Greenlees brothers who between 1881 and 1883 built a distillery on the model of a Bordeaux château. Bunnahabhain distillery since 1887 belongs to the group after Highland Distillers operated under the name of Islay Distillery.
Golden yellow color support.
Nose creamy, rich, dominated by cereals, dry straw.
In the mouth, soft but powerful enough attack. Found grain nose, supported by ripe yellow fruit (pear), raisins with some peppery notes. Full-bodied and well structured.
The long and warm finish is very persistent. A rich malt in the tradition of the distillery.
The most western islands of Scotland (if we except the Hebrides) is hardly attractive, with its rocky hills not exceeding 500m plains and windswept peat. Islay is none the less a paradise for lovers, because it contains the most typed d4ecosse malts. The island has strengths explaining the vitality of its whiskey production. Indeed, fertile lands have long allowed him to produce barley required for its needs, water is abundant with high rainfall, and bogs, which provided the fuel, account for nearly a quarter of the area of the island.
