Bunnahabhain 1986 Vintage 21 Year Old Whisky

Bunnahabhain 1986 Vintage. In November and December 1986 Cask Numbers 1585 and 1772 were filled and set aside in warehouse No. 6 of the Bunnahabhain Distillery in the remote north-eastern tip of the Isle of Islay.  As winter turned into spring, the first of eighty-four seasonal changes began to work their magic on these two very special traditional Spanish oak hogshead casks, with just the elements and the loving eye of an entire generation of distillery staff for company on their unique twenty-one year journey.  This Special Malt has a chestnut colour and a nose that's rich moist and fruit cakey with a lovely sherry aroma blanced by a fresh saltiness.  On the palate its a wonderful balance of flavours delivered in waves.  Sherried oak, slightly  oily, developing nutty chocolate maltiness, some toffee caramel and a touch  of honey.  The finish is long spicy and dry  with balanced oak.  A hint of cocoa and saltiness in the tail.   A fine example of how Bunnahabhain develops with longer maturation. Try this lovely dram without adding water.
Each of the 512 Limited Bunnahabhain 1986 Vintage bottles is numbered.

The date of bottling is written on the bottle as is the signature of the distillery manager.
