Bunnahabhain Stiùireadair

Bunnahabhain's Stiùireadair single malt pays homage to the distillery's shoreline on the north-east coast of Islay. They used whisky matured in first and second fill Sherry casks, with a leaning towards deliciously coastal malt.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose Brine, toasted sugar and caramel-drizzled raisins.

Palate Honey-roasted nuts, cinnamon and clove, with a touch of salt sea too.

Finish Sherried peels and chilli-chocolate.

Reviews for Bunnahabhain Stiùireadair
Awfully sweet
I like sherried whisky, but this one is a bit much.

Oh yeah
Apparent sherry influence on the nose - mix of fortified wine with brown sugar. Sweet on the palate - cream with dried fruit. Finish with caramel and sherry. If you appreciate whisky, get a bottle.

sherried loveliness
Reminds me of making banana bread - the smell of the rum soaked raisins and sampling the cake mix - this is really good for the money. Good balance of dried fruit and savoury flavour, sherry without the pepper burn of some spicier drams.

A surprising gem!
It's rare to taste such a rich whiskey without being over powered, with a smooth finish.
I really enjoyed this one and will buy it.

Excellent and in my view better than the 12.

Very tasty
A surprise present from my family, and very pleased.
This is a very tasty drink, either neat or with a drop of water.
It will be savoured, with friends, on special occasions.
I will be buying another bottle myself.
Definitely worth a try, you won’t be disappointed.

5 stars within its class
Obvious sherry and oak smell, but also raisins, plums (or any dried dark fruit). The sherry taste comes through quite obviously at first. After, the dark fruit comes through, but tastes closer to cherries and chocolate than what I'd have expected from the smell.

I bought this after trying the 12 year Bunnahabhain in Edinburgh over the weekend. The major difference is the smoothness, which you'd expect. The 12 year is pretty perfect for a sherry cask whisky. The non-age statement is perfect at this price point though. You won't get many of this quality between £25-£40. Better than Glenfidich for me.

You'll be pleasantly surprised.
I put off buying a bottle,as I'd got it in my head it was a novelty weeker tasting trial bottle that wouldn't touch the 12 year old. My dad bought one for my birthday this month and... I Love It.

An absolute gem (if the price is right)
Good specs for "entry level" (46%ABV, no chill-filtration, no added colour). And despite being NAS, this is at least as well integrated a whisky as you'd typically expect with a 10 or 12 year age statement.

Stiuireadair has quite a different character, without the trademark "woodiness" of Bunna's excellent 12-year. But as a "maritime" malt plus good, but not overwhelming, sherry cask influence Stiuireadair more than holds its own as "the business" in it's own right.

Good as it is, I would probably still not buy this at full price, simply because there are a few other malts I happen to prefer (including Bunna 12) available for not much more money.

However - and it's a BIG "however" - Stiuireadair is usually available with a good discount from various supermarkets or Amazon. And at 30-ish squids a go, sometimes even less, it's an absolutely cracking "bang for buck" affordable everyday dram. I'm currently on my third bottle and it certainly won't be my last.
