More Information

This limited edition whisky was distilled on the 28th October 1998 and filled into American Oak casks before being transferred to first-fill Manzanilla sherry casks on the 25th May 2016 to finish.

Manzanilla sherry is famed for being coastal, salty and nutty - characteristics that are similar to our Bunnahabhain spirit. Although lesser known and not produced as often as some other sherries, it's something our Master Blender, Julieann Fernandez, loves to use with our whisky.   

Bottled at cask strength to give a more intense, concentrated flavour, like all our whiskies, this festival release has no added colour and is non-chill filtered.

Tasting Notes

Colour:
Chestnut

Nose: 
Notes of freshly baked pastry with sweet almonds, rose petals, grapefruit and dried spices are balanced with a touch of mahogany and incense.

Palate: 
Coastal influence of seaweed and fresh sea air are met with raisins and dates and intertwined with creamy fudge, waxed red apples and a warm sweet spice reminiscent of star anise.

Finish:
Spicy and aromatic with caramelised walnuts; the star anise fades to reveal lemon peel and pears with a lingering note of sea salt.
