Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Distillery Bottling 70cl / 50.8%
Bunnahabhain Abhainn Araig is the distillery's special edition bottle for the Islay Festival Feis Ile 2022. Abhainn Araig is the name of one of the tributaries of the river Margadale, the distillery's water source.
This Bunnahabhain Abhainn Araig was matured in a mix of ex-bourbon and Oloroso sherry casks, along with some Pedro Ximenez sherry octaves - the tiny casks made by splitting a single sherry butt into eight separate mini casks. Bunnahabhain Abhainn Araig has been bottled at 50.8% without colouring or chill filtration and should be an absolute belter.
