Description

Feis Ile, the annual celebration of all things to do with Islay.  Especially single malt whisky.  And it’s a huge festival.

As part of the festival, the distilleries like to release a special Feis Ile bottling.  But traditionally, you have to be on the island on the day to get hold of it.

Until now.

Bunnahabhain, in their infinite wisdom have release a little bit into the general trade.  I feel lucky.

So what do we have here?  A well aged Bunny.  My lips are loudly smacking!

Twenty one years in standard Bunnahabhain casks, I presume American oak, ex Bourbon barrels and then two years in French oak that once held that fabulous apple based spirit, Calvados.

From WhiskyBase, “Oily, creamy, honey, ripe apple, good sweetness, more red and yellow fruits, hints of leather, spices, nuts, oak wood – not bad. Medium long, warm, fruity, honey, spice, leather”.

Official notes, “Sweet and fruity, lots of green apple and pear candies. Some signature cereal, oily notes of Bunnahabhain and more toffee mixed with dried fruits.  Spicy powerful then floral on the palate”.
