Bunnahabhain 1979

Country: Scotland
Region: Islay
Type: Single Malt
Bottler: Duncan Taylor
ABV: 47.1%
Score: 90 points

Bunnahabhain’s always been known as less peatier than most Islay malts, and this one has a nose with minimal peat and light wood smoke, toasted oak, and a nice butteriness with a hint of lemon underneath. The taste is buttery with citrusy notes of lemon peel and a good overall balance of ginger, almond, and allspice notes. The finish is lingering with a touch of lemon peel.
