Part of our maturation warehouse series, this 12 year old release has been finishing in an Oloroso Hogshead at Bunnahabhain since June 2014.  A really interesting dram which showcases how well Bunnahabhain spirit matures in sherry casks, with notes of paprika spice, stewed fruits, tropical flavours and nuts.

Description

The maturation warehouse is one of our newest visitor experiences at the distillery, exploring in depth, the maturation process and the effect a sherry cask has on our unpeated spirit at different ages.

First matured in a refill sherry butt, this whisky was then transferred to a first fill Oloroso sherry hogshead at the distillery in June 2014.  It has continued to mature in our coastal warehouse until bottled by the team to share with you here.

 

Cask Number: 110297

Age: 12 year old

AYS: 16/05/2007

The result is a complex, rich dram with a sweet and fruity nose, an oily mouthfeel with a soft, lightly spiced aftertaste with a clean, dry finish.

 

Our hand filled warehouse whiskies:

These are single cask bottlings, limited in number, selected by our Master Blender and our visitor team. Once the cask is emptied, it is unfortunately never to be repeated.

Please note, this whisky is hand filled by our visitor team straight from the cask.  As the whisky is not filtered, you might find particles in the liquid, which are entirely natural from the whisky maturation process and the cask, e.g. pieces of charcoal from the charring of the cask.   

The whisky is sold as is and no refunds will be given as a result of this process.  In addition, we will not be responsible should the whisky be held in customs. 

Tasting Notes

Nose

Liquorice, lime/citrus notes, tropical fruits – papaya, mango, pineapple, Bouganvillea, toffee/caramel, icing sugar, light, tropical sunset

Palate

Paprika spice which mellows out quite quickly, cava root, ginseng, creamy butterscotch, nuts, oily mouthfeel which coats the tongue, custard dessert

Finish

A soft aftertaste, with no lingering heavy influence.  Spice but not sharp, stewed fruits – plums, orange, dates, smooth delicate flavours including tropical palm trees and coconut oil – better than a pina colada!  Nutty and earthy with a clean, dry finish
