MacPhails Collection from Bunnahabhain, 2001 - whiskey independent bottling companies for which "Gordon & Macphail" took place in 2011. Whiskey was kept for 10 years in barrels of sherry.
Scottish brand name Bunnahabhain comes from Gallic phrase "Boon-a-havn", which literally means "river mouth", it is not surprising, since the distillery and warehouses with barrels really located right on the beach. Feature whiskey Bunnahaven is that in its production uses water from springs located on a hill and passing through the peat bogs, and therefore has no distinctive taste of peat, which is present in many local whiskey. As a result, whiskey Bunnahaven a softer light and taste than its neighbors, as well as ideal for the production on the basis of its other drinks. Most of the products Bunnahabhain distillery supplied for the production of the popular brands of whiskey, "Famous Grouse" and "Cutty Sark". But Bunnahaven successfully sells and spirits under its trademark, denying its delicate flavor myth of the rough nature of Scottish malts with peat hills.
Bunahabhain distillery was built on the island of Islay in 1881 and almost did not interrupt the work of all time, in contrast to other distilleries. Its production is characterized by the fact that the "heart" of the distillate, that is the part that is sent to the aging, much less than the other distilleries in Scotland. Bunahabhain - the lightest of all the islands of Islay single malts.
