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!

We’ve searched far and wide for the finest sherry casks and hand selected these Pedro Ximénez butts for the wonderful richness they add to our whisky. Finished in the PX casks for almost 3 years, following eleven years in 2nd fill sherry butt’s, this limited edition release owes its distinctive flavour to a perfect marriage of our unique Bunnahabhain malts, and the sweet, syrupy notes drawn from the very wood of the casks themselves.  Like all our whiskies, this is non-chill filtered and natural colour, meaning nothing is added or taken away.

This is a process that cannot be rushed and we only bottle when our Master Blender says the time is right.
