Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Bottled by: Douglas Laing 70cl / 48.4%
A peated Bunnahabhain Moine 2004 Islay whisky bottled as an 18-year-old in 2022 by Douglas Laing for their Old Particular range.
This 2004 Bunnahabhain Moine 18-year-old matured in a single hogshead cask DL15582 and was bottled without colouring or chill filtration, yielding 284 bottles at the Old Particular standard strength of 48.4%, the equivalent of the old imperial 85 proof. Peated Bunnahabhain has been one of the biggest Islay success stories of the 21st century and this one looks like a doozy.

Finish: LONG! Peat, bonfire smoke, chimney soot and burnt brown toast.
