Bunnahabhain has unveiled the 2022 release of its 12 Years Old Cask Strength Whisky.

It is the second limited-edition release in a series inspired by the annual cask-strength whisky tastings for visitors at Bunnahabhain's Warehouse 9.

The 2022 12 Years Old Cask Strength release has been matured in first- and second-fill oloroso sherry casks – as was the first 12 Years Old Cask Strength release in 2021 – which the distillery says impart notes of "intense dried fruits and warm cinnamon spice". The new expression is bottled at 56.6% ABV.

Bunnahabhain’s master distiller, Brendan McCarron, said: "We’re really proud of this exceptional release, which is a perfect encapsulation of our most celebrated expression. Not all whiskies work at cask strength and many don’t stand up to full maturation in sherry casks, but Bunnahabhain is different. This release really is Bunnahabhain in a bottle and gives people unable to make the trip to the distillery the chance to enjoy the Warehouse 9 experience wherever they may be.

"This second release is of course similar in many ways to the first, as we follow the same classic recipe of unpeated Islay spirit in oloroso. The latest expression is richer in sweet chocolate and red fruits on the nose and carries a spicier finish delivering bigger, richer and fuller flavours of oloroso sherry that Bunnahabhain drinkers have come to know and love."

The Bunnahabhain 2022 edition 12 Years Old Cask Strength whisky can be found at specially selected whisky stores worldwide and at bunnahabhain.com from October, with an RRP of GB£80.
