Bunnahabhain Stiùireadair which mate means in Gaelic, is a tribute to the mate who is inextricably linked for years to the brand. This one commemorates the heritage and history of the distillery where the sea has always played a crucial role. To manufacture the Bunnahabhain Stiùireadair selected sherry casks (both first and second fill) giving a fantastic twist on the maritime character of the distillery. Pleasant influences of dried fruit, creamy caramel, hints of brine, vanilla, nuts and a hint of herbs are the aroma. The palate opens with creamy here keys of dried fruit. This is complemented by the best of sea salt, caramel, nuts and spices. Expect a long and lingering finish.
