SMALL BATCH DISTILLED 18-YEAR-OLD ISLAY SINGLE MALT SCOTCH WHISKY Natural colour, unchillfiltered, Islay
Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer BUNNAHABHAIN
Bright ambering gold colour. Intense, complex, slightly spicy, expansive, honeyed, plum purée nose with some caramel notes. Dry, medium-full bodied, well structured, harmonious, slightly honeyed, intense, wonderfully rich, caramel-plum purée flavours with a lingering, mouthfilling, ultra smooth finish. The “Small Batch” 18-year-old Islay is remarkably rounded and will appeal to any Islay-nay-sayers who may be sensitive to smokiness. It has 46.3% alcohol with lot number 12:49-18226 on the lower part of the glass bottle. CSPC 37242

This single malt will offer up delicately framed tobacco notes along with some herbal tones on the nose, while the palate adds chocolate tones and spice amid the barley.
