Bunnahabhain says “Fèis Ìle is a time for celebration, the coming together of friends from across the globe, year on year to celebrate whisky and music on our Islay home. And what better way to celebrate than with this special dram.”
As the most northerly distillery on Islay, they are renowned for unpeated, classically sherried single malts. And this limited release is quintessentially Bunnahabhain in style.
Fully matured in rare Canasta sherry casks, its resting place was once home to skilfully blended sherries made from Palomino and Pedro Ximenez grapes.
Canasta Casks are very classical in style, with the balance of Oloroso sherry imparting flavours of spice, and the Pedro Ximenez adding layers of complexity, richness & sweetness.
The result is a distinctively special dram, fitting for the best of celebrations . So let’s raise a glass to friends near and far. Sláinte
