Bunnahabhain Ceobanach (pronounced "kyaw-bin-och") has an unusually rich character; from the sweetness of the bourbon casks, to the intense Islay malt peatiness, not to mention the characteristic sea air influence from more than 10 years maturing on the coast.
Step back in time and smell the smoky mist of peat fires mixed with sea air. Aromas of smoke, tar and seaweed are balanced with malty sweetness, vanilla, orange and liquorice.
COLOUR: Lemon gold.
NOSE: Intensely pungent depths of sweet oak, seaweed, smoke and elegant light tar with mild antiseptic.
PALATE: Exceptionally balanced malt sweetness, then tangy yet mellow vanilla, white pepper, bitter orange and salt.
FINISH: Lingering oatcake saltiness and sweet peppered smoke.
