About the 2005 Palo Cortado Finish
This Bunnahabhain started life in 2005 in whisky refill casks, before being transferred into Palo Cortado casks on 30/07/2015 to rest for a little longer in our coastal warehouses before being bottled.
Palo Cortado is a rare type of sherry that started as a Fino or an Amontillado. During the ageing process, the flor becomes damaged or dies off, which leads to the sherry ageing oxidatively, giving it some of the sweeter characteristics more common in Oloroso sherry.
The result for this distillery exclusive is a rich whisky full of honeyed nuts, sweet, candied fruits, vanilla fudge and creamy berries. With a gently dry, slightly spicy, long and lingering finish, and bottled at 55.5% abv, this is dessert in a bottle!
Limited to 624 bottles and only available at our distillery and online shop, this limited edition is something special!
