2013 Banyuls Cask Finish
This Distillery Exclusive has been maturing in our coastal warehouses overlooking the Sound of Islay for 10 Years. Starting life on the 26th February in refill hogsheads, the spirit was then transferred to Banyuls casks on the 15th July 2019 to finish for three years.
Banyuls is a deliciously sweet red wine from the Pyrenees region in southwestern France. Made from the Grenache grape, it typically spends around 8 years aging in oak casks. It is known for it's sweet, fruit flavours - the perfect compliment to our unpeated Islay single malt whisky!
Like all Bunnahabhain whiskies, this Distillery Exclusive is non-chill filtered and no added colour.
Green on the nose with notes of freshly cut grass, hydrangeas, crisp apples, pears and a shaving of mint
Rain drenched strawberries and bakes prunes intertwine with creamy malt, vanilla pods and a hint of earthy lemongrass
Dry finish with a twist of dark chocolate.
