Please take into account that these are my personal tasting notes and personal experience, as such you may interpret this whiskey differently from me.
This sample was kindly donated to my blog by The Exclusive Dram – a company whose aim is “to allow anyone the chance to sample some of the most unique and expensive whiskys without breaking the bank!”
Smoke, peat, chocolate and dried fruits.
Chocolate, sherry, fruit – blackcurrants, cherries and red grapes. Smoke, peat and spice (pepper).
Long – smoke, peat, chocolate and a hint of fruit.
I love a good Islay whisky and this was no exception. It had that characteristic peat smoke to it but on the palate – wow this one really surprised me! Loads of fruit, to the point you almost forget it’s from Islay. This is sold out pretty much everywhere now but it was available for £75 a bottle which some might say is steep. Personally though after trying it I would happily pay that for a bottle- although I’m not sure my bank account would be so happy about it.
Although this is really hard to find now you can get a 50ml sample from The Exclusive Dram for only £9.49 here.

This limited edition from Islay’s Bunnahabhain distillery takes its name from the Scots Gaelic for peat, Moine, and the seven Oloroso sherry casks in which it was matured. Revealing a side of the distillery not often seen, this rich and complex single malt is presented non chill-filtered at a cask strength of 60.1%.
