Bunnahabhain 20 Year Old 1990 - Single Cask (Master of Malt)

Bunnahabhain 20 Bottling Note

A fascinating little Bunnahabhain distilled in December of 1990 and aged in a single Spanish oak butt for 20 years before bottling on the 7th November 2011. Astonishingly sherried, this stuff really reminds us of a good old Japanese single cask malt, and it has more than a hint of aniseed. Well worth a try!

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Hints of truffle, soy sauce and Oloroso sherry greet the nostrils, along with a tremendously unctuous core of slightly smoky toffee, honey and a little granary toast. Mince pies, hot from the oven, and something slightly floral too, perhaps a whiff of lavender.

Palate: A phenomenally rich, sherried palate that offers up a fascinating mix of aniseed, smoky bacon crisps, tar and molasses. A true sherry monster! Hints too of sea salt, hoisin sauce and pebbles on the beach.

Finish: The aniseed notes draw out on the finish, with a very interesting explosion of turmermic, allspice and caradmom pods.

Overall: A beast of a sherry dram, with a very interesting Japanese feel that reminds us slightly of some of the old Karuizawa single casks. Very aniseed rich too!
