Bunnahabhain started production in 1883 and currently the majority of the spirit it produces is lightly peated, although since 2012 around 20% of the output has been peated at 35ppm.

Sheltered from the Atlantic this lighter Islay whisky has an important role in Cutty Sark as well as Black Bottle, while its standing as a single malt has increased since it dropped colouring, chill filtering and increased the bottling strength of its core range to 46.3%ABV.

This bottle comes with a little philosophy for life and whisky:

"Twenty-one years marks a special passage in any life. Twenty-one years sees the bright coat of innocence unbuttoned for the last time and hung by a door now closed. But twenty-one years unlocks other doors, the ones that lead to the opportunities only maturity can offer along the path to the rest of your life. Twenty-one years sets you on a journey of discovery where the tantalising dreams glimpsed in youth might just become a glorious reality."

As you have guessed, this deep soul searching is for the 21 year old Bunnahabhain. In addition, the bottles are signed by former distillery manager John MacLellan and a distillery worker
