.bunnahabhain – 1997-2012 – the ultimate

54,2% abv, €60, single malt, non-chill filtered, natural color, single cask, cask strength

No Tasting Notes
Tasted during a Masterclass with Jan Beek 27th August 2013
Mark: +++/++

Conclusion: I am sorry to say this was not my cup of tea, although I had high hopes. The fresh, fruity and gentle scents and tastes of Bunnahabhain’s beautiful spirit is clearly available, but it is a bit done away with by the Laphroaig-like peat smoke.

More info: Normally, Bunnahabhain spirit is unpeated when it goes into a cask to mature. In 1997 they have decided to experiment with a peated spirit and age it, some of which Van Wees got hold of and bottled in their series of the Ultimate series.

This particular bottle was distilled on 11/12/97, put to rest in hogshead 5660, bottled on 07/12/12 andwas bottle #194 of 291
