Fèis Ìle 2021: 2001 Marsala Finish
Our Bunnahabhain Distillery may have seen plenty of changes since we started making exceptional single malts here in 1881, but some things remain the same. Our dedication to our craft, our determination to keep the spirit of Islay alive and the wisdom to know that special occasions deserve special single malts.
That's why , for the 2021 Fèis Ìle, we took one of our finest whiskies and let it gently slumber in casks that once held the finest Marsala fortified wine. The result is a sublime symphony of Sicilian flair and Scottish tradition; exotic aromas of cherries, liquorice and tobacco giving way to the sweetest rhapsody of fruit, nuts and the faintest breath of spice and comforting leather.
Dried fruit, honey and Morello cherries, with hints of red grapes, walnuts, liquorice and tobacco
Sweetly dry flavours of stone fruits, red apple, vanilla, honey and cloves, with a touch of oak and roasted nuts
Dry and short, with subtle hints of tobacco, leather and spice
