Bunnahabhain Maine Bordeaux Red Wine Cask Matured
Bunnahabhain Distillery sits on one of the most remote corners of the island, nestled into the bay right on the Sound of Islay. Despite the remote location, they never stop searching the world for the perfect casks to complement their Single Malt Limited Editions, and for this 2008 Mòine Bordeaux Red Wine edition, they have found something truly special.
Although the original non-peated Islay malt, Bunnahabhain has become well known for its Mòine, (meaning ‘peated’ in Scots Gaelic) variants in recent years. For the first time in the distillery's history, the peated spirit has been fully matured in premium red wine casks from Bordeaux in France. These casks have been maturing, protected from the elements in their coastal warehouses, for just under ten years, before being bottled in early 2018.
The result is a unique and stunning array of rich grape, toffee and peppery smoke notes, with a long and warming fruity finish. Sit back and savour
