Reivew of our 1997 Bunnahabhain from Malt Advocate magazine

A new review of our NC2 Bunnahabhain 1997 46% in Malt Advocate magazine. 27th Sept 2010

More mature peated Bunnahabhain Islay whiskies are emerging (like this one). Indeed, tarry, peat ash notes are evident throughout this one (especially on the finish!), along with nutty toffee, nougat, smoked olive, glazed ginger and candied lime. Pretty even keeled, not as medicinal and aggressive as its cousins on the southern end of the island. The smoke and layered sweet notes balance nicely. If you’re looking to ease your way into smoky Islay whiskies, this would be a good start.
