Bunnahabhain Staoisha 8 Years Old 2013 Single Malt Scotch Whisky 700ml, 57.1% ABV

This Bunnahabhain Staoisha 8 Years Old is a heavy peated delight, distilled in 2013 and bottled in 2022. Matured in a Dechar/Rechar hogshead and bottled at a powerful 57.1% ABV by LMDW for their Artist Collective 6 series, this whisky is a true masterpiece. The nose is a feast for the senses with notes of seaweed, charred wood, marine peat, and smoked bacon.

On the palate, it is surprisingly soft and sweet at first, but quickly develops into a bold and intense flavor of charred wood and smoked nori, leaving a lasting impression. The mouthfeel is rich and oily, coating the palate in a smoky and savory taste that lingers long after each sip. The finish is a perfect balance of smokiness and sweetness, reminiscent of smoked lemon sorbet, leaving you wanting more.

Abour Bunnahabhain Distillery

Overall, this Bunnahabhain Staoisha 8 Years Old is a true gem that should not be missed. With only a limited production of bottles available, this is a whisky that is worth savoring and enjoying with every sip.

Although the distillery itself was founded in 1881, the first peated version of Bunnahabhain was not released until 2004, in the form of a 6 year old nicknamed Moine, which is Gaelic for ‘peat’. Named after the loch located just a short distance from the distillery, this Staoisha opens with a delicate and salty peat, before moving on to a far more compact and earthy peat on the palate. This increase in power is also seen in the floral, fruity, vanilla and aniseed sequences that are abundantly present throughout the whisky.

A reflection of the richness and diversity of Scotch Whisky, the Artist Collective range covers a wide variety of styles, maturations and regions in small batches selected every year from around a hundred samples. Even more ambitious than previous editions, this sixth collection is composed of eight single malts from Speyside, Highland and Islay, distilled between 2008 and 2013.   Now one of the flagship ranges from La Maison Du Whisky and an amazing reflection of their ethos, skills and knowledge when it comes to bottling exceptional single malt whisky.
