About the distillery
Bunnahabhain translates from the Gaelic ‘The Mouth of the River’ and it was founded in 1883 on the North of Islay. Built during the 19th Century Whisky boom, there are only around twenty other distilleries in Scotland created during this time which are still active now. Bunnanhabhain is fortunate to be amongst these century old distilleries as it was mothballed it 1999. It did reopen eventually and now actively sells it Whisky.
About the cask
Distilled on the 16th November 1987 and aged in a single refill American Bourbon cask, number 2470. It has been bottled at cask strength and there has been no colourings added - this is non-chill filtered.
Enjoy the Vanilla ice cream and banana sweets on the nose. Velvet smooth and luscious on the mouth with maltiness and the slight hint of smoke at the very end on the palate. With a drop of water more sherbet sweets on the nose and more floral notes while on the palate there are more exotic fruits and melon.

Lady of the Glen's first Lowland malt Whisky. With roots as old as 1750 the Littlemill Distillery was rumoured to be the oldest in Scotland before it burned down in 2004.
Aged in an American oak ex-bourbon cask for 21 years using water sourced from the Kilpatrick Springs, this malt has a clean colour similar to Pinot Grigio. Anticipate a little soft fruitiness on the nose when neat but add water for a burst of tropical pineapple and melon. Enjoy the smooth taste of lemon ice cream on the tongue and custard dessert as a comforting aftertaste.
This Littlemill was from a single ex-bourbon American Oak cask and it was non chill filtered.
The cask yielded 309 bottles which sold out May 2014.
Tom thought the Littlemill was "a very interesting dram with layers of complexity that work wonders"
The Whisky Corner team said that "(it was) a lovely malt that suprised me"
Jon of the Scotch and Sci Fi whisky blog summarised "a sweetie fan's dram"
Tiger of The Edinburgh Whisky Blog described it as "(having) Lots of fruity juiciness layered with touches of spice and lovely clean citric notes"

Sold out January 2014.From the mothballed Caperdonich distillery in Speyside came this deluxe malt. Aged in an ex-bourbon American oak cask for 19 years and bottled at cask strength without chill filtering or any another additives.
Very spiritied for its age, the flavour was all about the essence of lemon with a hint of buttery sweetness. On the palate you would have been surprised by delicous honey and ice cream undertones. By adding water gradually the slightly mellow warm biscuits flavours and malty flavours would have come through. After your initial taste, you could sit back and enjoy a warm and clean after taste with a distant hint of toffee. Delicous and yummy, we are vey proud to release this as our second malt and third Lady of the Glen release
Whisky Journal The review is in German, but a translated segment reads, "The tasting buds are stimulated by citrus fruits and slightly sour apples"

Our first Speyside malt whisky. The smells of over ripe red apples, chocolate and spicy winter fruits this dram certainly did not disappoint on the nose. Mouth coating and long lasting this sherried dram had undertones of beeswax and hazelnuts throughout. With the addition of water you would bring out flavours of dried figs and honey. With a big and spicy finish this whisky did not disappoint.
The Benrinnes Distillery was founded in in 1835 and is located in Banffshire. It was completely rebuilt in 1955/1956 due to a flood and it is one of the few distilleries in Scotland that still uses so-called 'worm tubs' to cool the vapours and condensed spirit from the running stills. This feature was once common, but not anymore. The water sources are the Scurran and Rowantree Burns.
This Benrinnes was from a single Sherry cask and sold out January 2014.
Miss Whisky Blog "really fruity with apple, peach, fig and milke Chocolate notes"
