This cask strength, heavily peated Bunnahabhain was distilled on the 11th December 1997, and it was aged for 13 years in two hogsheads before bottling on the 16 May 2011. A release of 594 bottles.
Nose: Very powerful on the nose, with notes of shoe polish, cut hay, peppermint, seaweed and oily wood smoke. Hints of soft honeyed sweetness underpin the nose.
Palate: Almond oil on the nose, with more of that woodsmoke. There are hints of spice, with lemon meringue, hazelnut and peppermint, with just a touch of peat.
Finish: Oily, nutty and slightly herbal as it tails off.

I'm not done yet!Riggs should read,figs, almond oil, toasted.finish is long lingering and rolls smoke around like a bonfire on a windy day. Final finish is herbal with the citrus notes finally fading - long long long finish. What a great dram, I am so pleased I have one bottle left, I will miss this when its gone. Unique.

this is my 2nd bottle from these two casks. I love Islay whisky and while bunnahabhain isn't my favourite distillery, this bottling it utterly brilliant. Some of the peat has faded from this "heavily peated" edition, however more than enough still exists to give a wonderfully balanced dram with complex and what I would consider rare flavours. on the nose you get beeswax, linseed honey, meadow grass / meadow flowers, fresh rain. Initial flavours are an explosion of smoke well balanced with More honey, wonderfully lemon zest, oranges, Riggs and
