Bunnahabhain 12 year old PX Finish Lady of the Glen Cask 5549983

This delightful Bunnahabhain 12 year old was aged in a sherry butt and was then finished in a PX hogshead. Independent bottlers Lady of the Glen released just 320 bottlers. The whisky has a rich and deep palate with lovely tannins on the palate and plenty of sweet notes. 

Like all other releases from Lady of the Glen this whisky was bottled at natural cask strength and without chill filtration nor artificial colour involved. 

Lady of the Glen Independent Bottlers

Lady of the Glen is an independent bottler bringing international whisky enthusiasts an exclusive taste of Scotland’s traditional spirit.  This means they are part detective and a bit magician as they seek, source, and look after rare single malt whiskies from distilleries across Scotland, turning them into something special through traditional bottling techniques.

All Lady of the Glen brand releases are hand bottled at natural cask strength, without any chill filtering or colouring which means the original taste remains unaffected and the end flavour is pure, full, and always unique.

Bunnahabhain distillery

Bunnahabhain distillery was built in 1881. From the start, the project was a massive task. A pier to load and unload barrels was needed. A road and houses for the distillery workers was also needed. Some £30 000 (£2.6 million in today's money) were spent building it. 

While many distilleries on the island supplied blenders and sold their spirit as single malt, Bunnahabhain did not. All of its production was being sold to blenders. Three major blends, Cutty Sark, Famous Grouse and Black Bottle used the spirit from this distillery.

In the 1963 the production capacity of the distillery was doubled. Less than two decades later, the distillery was mothballed for a couple of years. When the distillery reopened, it kept on supplying blenders. The owners of the distillery, The Edrington Group, sold it in 2003 to Burn Stewart. Their parent company went bust in 2009 and South African distributors Distell acquired it. Bunnahabhain has gone from strength to strength ever since.

The spirit produced by the distillery is light and delicate in style. this is achieved by the usage of huge pot stills filled with little wash during distillation. Very little peated spirit is produced.
