Four long decades have crawled by as this precious whisky slowly and silently matured in Bunnahabhain’s warehouses by the sea. Indeed, the casks that this whisky was maturing in were all but forgotten, until their blender discovered them whilst reviewing the warehouse ledgers. Sourced from the legendary wines and spirit merchant, J. G. Turney, these casks have been home to this stunning whisky for the past forty years.
This unique 40 Year Old is as rare as it is prized – if you’re ever lucky enough to hold one, be gentle, you’re holding a piece of history!
