Bunnahabhain "Stiuireadair" Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

SKU #1424280 90 points Whisky Advocate

 A no age statement Bunnahabhain destined to replace the existing 12 year old, matured in first and second-fill sherry casks. Raisins, fruit spice, furniture polish, and roasted nuts on the nose, along with an edge of brine. Rich and full-bodied in the mouth, with malt, sweet sherry, and cotton candy, plus cloves and a sprinkling of sea salt. The finish offers red berries, lively spice, and dark chocolate. (GS, Spring 2019)

K&L Notes

The new entry level offering from Bunnahabhain is pronounced "stew-rahdur." The company has decided to single-handedly save Scots Gaelic, while also producing one of Islay's most elegant malts, of which the Stiuireadair is an excellent example. The purported age is around 8-10 years and features a prominently sherried character which pairs very well with the subtle brackish quality of this oceany malt. While there's no peat here, it's hard to separate the distillery from its coastal home and that comes through even with the lovely sherry character. Expect great balance without compromising complexity, plenty of dried fruit, earthy malt and refreshing sea spray. A very good value and a welcome addition to the standard range for this wonderful distillery. Like all recent Bunnahs it's bottled without chill filtration or coloring of any kind.
