As one of the few distilleries on Islay to produce an unpeated spirit, Bunnahabhain has become famous due to its focus on sherry cask maturation. The bold, malt driven spirit is perfect for long term maturation, and can hold up to more wine driven casks. This bottling was finished in 1st fill Oloroso sherry casks giving it a rich, leathery character!

Nose: Minerality and tropical notes. Warm Black Volcanic sand and sundried driftwood. Tropical fruit plater sitting next to a resort pool.

Palate: Drinking sweet, fermented pineapple juice and malt from a wooden chalice. Kettle salt and vinegar crisps after swimming class. Smoked sardine pate on a salada cracker.

Finish: white salt flakes on juicy sultanas and pineapple.

Founded by Fabio Rossi, the grandson of the Venetian edible oil and wine merchant Giuseppi Rossi, Wilson & Morgan have earned their place in whisky fame. Following the golden rule, “Trust your palate and your instincts”, Wilson & Morgan have had the opportunity to bottle some wildly rare casks from some of Scotlands more elusive distilleries, including Port Ellen, Brora and Macallan. Fabio Rossi was also instrumental in the use of Sicilian Marsala wine casks in finishing whisky. In 2002 he bottled a Longmorn, finished in Marsala casks, which he then presented to author Michael Jackson, who dubbed Fabio as “The Tailor of Whisky”.
