Introducing Bunnahabhain 12 Year Old Cask Strength, a limited-edition whisky inspired by visitor tastings in the distillery’s iconic Warehouse 9.

Matured on the remote, north-eastern coastline of Islay, and produced using pure spring water from the Margadale Spring, the 12 Year Old Cask Strength is an undiluted celebration of the distillery’s hugely popular Bunnahabhain 12 Year Old expression.

For years, visitors making the pilgrimage to Bunnahabhain distillery have been enjoying drams straight from the cask in the famous, Warehouse 9, so now consumers from all over the world will be able to recreate this privilege at home.

Brendan McCarron, Master Distiller on the inspiration behind Cask Strength.

“When people embark on a journey to Islay and try Bunnahabhain whiskies straight from the cask, it creates so much joy. But we understand that not everyone is able to make the trip. With this limited edition 12 Year Old Cask Strength, we can give people around the world the chance to experience it themselves.”

“Not all whiskies work at cask strength and many whiskies don’t stand up to full maturation in sherry casks. Bottling our 12 Year Old at cask strength intensifies the core characteristics of spice, cracked black pepper, cinnamon but not at the expense of our spirit’s character. In fact, it enhances it. The mouthfeel and texture of the whisky increases and it shows off the balance of the spirit and the wood, but in a more concentrated form. This really represents Bunnahabhain in a bottle.”

COLOUR: Deep russet gold

NOSE: Dark berries, citrus and toasted oak which gradually transitions to sweet vanilla and a hint of cinnamon spice.

PALATE: Creamy chocolate, sherry-soaked fruit and a balanced nuttiness give way to cloves, nutmeg and a subtle sea salt spray.

FINISH: A lingering sweet finish with cherries and a touch of wood spice.
