Bunnahabhain 2008 Mòine Bordeaux Red Wine Cask Matured, 58.1%

Price: $95 Issue: Winter 2018 Reviewer: Gavin Smith

Bunnahabhain has been marketing batches of peated spirit under the Mòine banner since 2004, and this example is the first to have been fully matured in Bordeaux red wine casks. Damp peat, sweet antiseptic, and subtle raspberry aromas. Lots of red berry notes on the palate, backed by milky coffee, peat, and vanilla. Black pepper and berry fruits in the smoky finish.
