      Beyond the Label

      Bunnahabhain is known for being an outlier as an unpeated Islay Whisky. But every so often they choose to peat their malt and release their unique take on Islay peat.  Here we have one of these exceptionally rare expressions. 

      Despite being just 5 years old, after the Brand Manager for Signatory tried this cask, he personally insisted it be allocated a US exclusive.  A forceful, youthful, peaty affair, but not quite as intense as its Islay neighbors, presenting more of a barbecued take on smoke and with more culinary coastal notes than the iodine salinity seen from Islay's Southern coast.  An atypical whisky that we suspect will strike gold with any fan of Islay.

      Tasting Notes

      Nose

      Peat fans rejoice! This is a nose for you, landing somewhere between the barbecue smoke of Ledaig and the campfire of Ardbeg, and the dried leaves of 20+ year Laphroaig and Caol Ila. In this Staoisha, you're treated to scents of leftover crispy bacon and salted pork loin smothered in sweet barbecue sauce. There's burnt leaves. And, curiously, a sweetness that is unmistakably white frosting birthday cake.

      Palate

      The palate turns saltier with both brine and something recalling asian fish sauce. There's grilled meat alongside hot peppers and cracked black peppercorn. In a not-too-overwhelming way, there's also extinguished campfire, as though experienced from a distance in a forest.

      Finish

      The finish evolves into yet another beast. Old, musty attic filled with forgotten moving boxes - notes usually found in much, much older whiskies. Puddy, reminding that this is indeed still a Bunnahabhain. Faint cocoa powder notes. And, of course, more notes familiar from the nose and palate in seasoned kippers and coal embers.This is an uncompromising, and rather incomparable, experience. It leaves one wishing for more peated Bunnahabhain in this world. Much more.
