Bunnahabhain Canasta 1980 36 Year Old Whisky In Presentation Case
Limited Release of 1200 bottles available globally.
The 1980 Vintage Canasta Cask Finish breathed the briny coastal air for over 14,000 days – first in casks that held Oloroso Sherry, then in perfectly sweet Canasta sherry oak.
Notes of rich oak, dried fruit, figs, raisins and sultanas, balanced with treacle toffee, dark chocolate, and vanilla. The palate has flavours of rich oakiness balanced with sweet dried fruit, treacle toffee, black coffee and cocoa, and roasted nuts, with a hint of coastal brininess. The finish is dry but lingering sweet fruit and oak.
Established in 1881 and built close to the Mouth of the Margadale river, Bunnahabhain means Mouth of The River in Gaelic. Bunnahabhain is the only distillery on Islay to produce Whisky using pure spring water. Most northerly of the Islay Distilleries – situated on the north east tip of the island. Overlooking the Sound of Islay, a vast stretch of sea travelled by many a seafarer, as illustrated by the helmsman on the pack, Bunnahabhain’s wonderfully remote location makes it an idyllic place for Scottish Whisky distillation. The welcoming and complex taste of Islay – unpeated Islay, produced using unpeated malted barley and spring water.
