Description

This 16 year old Mòine Sauternes Distillery Exclusive whisky started life on the 1st of December 2004 where it matured for 9 years in refill hogsheads, before being transferred to rare Sauternes hogshead casks to finish for seven years.

Matured in full in our coastal warehouses on Bunnahabhain Bay, the blending of different casks requires great skill by our Master Blender, Julieann Fernandez.  With just 885 bottles produced, this is not one to be missed.
