Our Inspiration

Like all our whiskies, this edition is non-chillfiltered and natural colour.  

Bottled at cask strength, we asked Brendan McCarron, Master Distiller what the inspiration behind Cask Strength is:

“When people embark on a journey to Islay and try Bunnahabhain whiskies straight from the cask, it creates so much joy. But we understand that not everyone is able to make the trip. With this limited edition 12 Year Old Cask Strength, we can give people around the world the chance to experience it themselves.”

“Not all whiskies work at cask strength and many whiskies don’t stand up to full maturation in sherry casks. Bottling our 12 Year Old at cask strength intensifies the core characteristics of spice, cracked black pepper, cinnamon but not at the expense of our spirit’s character. In fact, it enhances it. The mouthfeel and texture of the whisky increases and it shows off the balance of the spirit and the wood, but in a more concentrated form. This really represents Bunnahabhain in a bottle.”

Tasting Notes


Deep Russet Gold


Dark berries, citrus and toasted oak which gradually   transitions to sweet vanilla and a hint of cinnamon spice.


Creamy chocolate, sherry-soaked fruit and a balanced nuttiness give way to cloves, nutmeg and a subtle sea salt spray.


A lingering sweet finish with cherries and a touch of wood spice.
