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 elegant thirty year old has been bottled by North Star. Founded in 2016 by former A. D. Rattray brand ambassador Iain Croucher, North Star is an independent bottler of fine whiskies, gins, rums and bourbons. The Glasgow based company produces only small batch releases without chill filtration and at the healthy strength they come out the cask.
