Bunnahabhain, has today announced the launch of a new annual cask strength 12 Year Old bottling.

Bunnahabhain Cask Strength 12 Year Old – 2021 Edition (55.1% ABV) is an unpeated Islay single malt Scotch whisky, matured in a combination of ex-bourbon and ex-sherry casks, which has been inspired by visitor tastings in the distillery’s Warehouse 9.

For years, visitors making the pilgrimage to Bunnahabhain have been enjoying drams straight from the cask in the famous Warehouse 9, and now fans from all over the world will be able to recreate the experience at home.  

Bunnahabhain Cask Strength 12 Year Old, which is said to be an undiluted celebration of the distillery’s hugely popular 12 Year Old expression, is led by notes of dried fruits, cereal, caramel and vanilla.

Commenting on the launch, Brendan McCarron, Bunnahabhain’s Master Distiller, said: “When people embark on a journey to Islay and try our whiskies straight from the cask, it creates so much joy. But we understand that not everyone is able to make the trip. With this annual Cask Strength 12 Year Old Cask release, we can give people around the world the chance to experience it themselves.”

Bunnahabhain Cask Strength 12 Year Old, will be available later this month from specialist retailers, for a RRP of £75.00.
