BUNNAHABHAIN 1970 - DUNCAN TAYLOR

Lets do a 2-part trip back to this overlooked distillery on Islay's north-east coast.
Both bottling are from the 70's... one the start and one from the end of the decade...


Bunnahabhain 1970 38yo 40,3%,  ex-bourbon cask#4073, 221 bottles, Duncan Taylor

Deep gold in colour

Nose:
Here’s exactly what I love in old Bunna - tropical fruits galore! The whole thing just seems more lively and fresh and at only 40,3%

Taste:
Spices, citrus and other tropical fruits, salt and some oak to keep it all in balance. The Bunna heavy malt notes creeps in along with the oak in perfect measure – just beautiful – not going to elaborate further on this one – it’s just a beautiful old Bunna with everything you can wish for!

91/100!
