Lady of the Glen Bunnahabhain 26yo.

logoLady of the Glen founded by Gregor Hannah at the end of 2012, are an independent bottler who’s ethos is to bottle single casks at cask strength and non-chill filtered.                                                                  The Bunnahabhain I’m tasting here is Lady of the Glens first Islay whisky release and is a 26yo distilled on the 16th November 1987, bottled at cask strength 50.01% and is from a refill Bourbon Cask.

Nose, tropical fruit salad, banana, vanilla, hints of lemon and a spiciness tempering the initial sweetness. It develops with summer meadow notes, floral, grassy and hay, also hiding in the background are just a few hints of briny coastal notes.

Palate, fruity, juicy, lemons, black pepper, a nice oak note, a little astringent (makes you want another little sip)

Finish is spicy and dry but with a nice length.

With just a few drops of water added.

Nose develops cream, toffee and some spices cinnamon/nutmeg.

Palate becomes more fruity with an amazing sweet shop sweetness and I found the drying astringent note lessened, for me the water unified the palate.

Finish becomes more fruity and less dry still with a good dose of spice.

This whisky is available to buy here with 205 bottles and available in 70 and 20cl botlles.
