From the bottle :
Stiuireadair (pronounced stew-rahdur) is a tribute to the sea and its influence on our distillery and the whisky we distil. Our blender has carefully selected casks with spirit of varying ages from our shore side distillery warehouses, to create this distinctive dram, with its rich characterful heart, typical of Bunnahabhain.
To create Stiùireadair, the Senior Blender has selected first and second fill sherry casks with spirit of varying ages and warehouse locations to construct a dram that truly exposes the coastal nature of the Bunnahabhain single malt whisky, whilst not losing the sherry influence everyone knows and loves in the famous 12 year old.
First and Second Fill Sherry Casks
Nose: musty , bourbon like smell, sweet, malty
Taste: Prickle spice first, beer like bitterness, then sweetness follows
Finish: short finish, bitterness lingering
Score : 83 , WB160478
