A rippingly intense whisky from Bunnahabhain, bottled by Signatory Vintage for their Cask Strength range.
This dram was distilled at Bunnahabhain on the 2nd of March 2009, and bottled on the 28th August 2020, having been aged in a single first fill sherry butt for 11 years.
The final result is an aggressive and assertive dram that serves up notes of figs, plums, chilli chocolate, vanilla, oak, almonds, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, dried fruits, raspberries, blackcurrant, drying coffee and peppery alcohol.
Bottled at a fearsome 67.9% ABV and without chill filtration or colouration, this could definitely take a touch of water.
Only 627 were drawn from the single cask.
