Bunnahabhain Stiuirea Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Item # 43370 750mL

It seems like a growing amount of people are finally coming around to the charms of this long running Islay distillery. Thought to be a mellower style of spirit from this famously polarizing place, in truth the whiskies are quintessentially Islay, and the lower peat levels make the island character shine through even more. This release was matured in a variety of ex-Oloroso Sherry Casks.

Staff Pick Notes

For those wanting to enter into the world of Islay scotch whisky, yet somewhat hesitant to take on a heavily peated smoke-bomb, this is the whisky for you. Sea salt, cinammon, and dried fruit play well with the perfect amount of subtle peat making this an elegant entry point into the world of Islay. There is plenty to love within the warm embrace of ex-oloroso sherry casks. This is a fantastic whisky from one of the best producers in Islay. It's a no-brainer.
