Bunnahabhain festival special

Postby Rob Allanson » Thu May 14, 2009 3:18 pm

In celebration of this year's Islay Festival of Malt and Music, Bunnahabhain Distillery will be releasing a limited edition Bunnahabhain Mòine Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky.
In the years before 1964, Bunnahabhain's history reveals a warm, peaty characteristic for which some connoisseurs have developed a particular penchant.
Bunnahabhain's Master Distiller, Ian MacMillan, has endeavoured to replicate that peated essence.
This limited edition has been finished in Oloroso Sherry butts for three months in sea facing warehouse no. 7.
Pure in colour and strength as nature intended, with a high strength of 58.4%.

What a bummer for those of us way over next to the larger "pond". That dram sounds absolutely fantastic. I hope someone around here has the opportunity to get one and share some thoughts.

Last year, the bottle was over £200 for a much younger malt.
Would it reach now £400 or are they now more realistic?
