The MacPhail's Collection 8 year old (distilled at Bunnahabhain), 43%

Price: $45 Issue: Spring 2017 Reviewer: Gavin Smith

Heavily peated Bunnahabhain spirit, referred to as Margadale, was used for this bottling and matured in refill sherry butts. Savory on the nose, with smoky brine, plain chocolate, and Granny Smith apples. The palate offers similar green apple notes, along with sweet peat, cocoa, and licorice. Wood smoke and pipe tobacco in the medium-length finish.
