A truly special release, this 1980 Canasta is a real Bunnahabhain 'sherry bomb'. You'll find rich oak, dark chocolate and vanilla notes on the nose, and taste the merest hint of coastal brininess, with sweet dried fruit, treacle and cocoa. The finish is dry, lingering and sweet - delicious!

Description

Bunnahabhain was once ruled by the sea; until 1960, all our deliveries arrived by boat. Today, the waves bring a very different cargo – crew and passengers venturing ashore, often from stunning ocean-going yachts. Their destination: our famously welcoming Islay single malt Scotch whisky.

The 1980 Canasta cask finish breathed in our briny coastal air for over 14,000 days – first in casks that held oloroso sherry, then in perfectly sweet Canasta sherry oak. The very essence of our coastal distillery
