Bunnahabhain is a classic Islay distillery that doesn’t release ‘traditional’ peated Islay whiskies, Bruichladdich being another example of this. Bunnahabhain do release some peated whisky, but their main style is sherry influence. Of all the Islay distilleries, Bunnahabhain is one that is continuously overlooked, but as it approaches its 150th anniversary it certainly shows that it has earned its place as a fantastic whisky producer. Bunnahabhain whiskies pack in flavour from heaps of Spanish cask influence and a slightly salty finish, really melding the Islay style sweet and savoury together.
