Bunnahabhain 12 year old

bunnahabhain_12.jpegLocated on the northeast coast of the isle of Islay, Bunnahabhain distillery (pronounced 'Boon-a-havin' and meaning "foot of the river" in Scots Gaelic) was established in 1881 and has been producing whisky ever since. The distillery is perhaps most famously known among whisky enthusiasts for being the only one on the island that produces unpeated spirit as part of their house style. 
Bunnahabhain 12 year old, the distillery's youngest in the core range, is back on LCBO shelves this summer after a nearly 2 year absence. "Un-chillfiltered" for extra body and depth of flavour, the whisky is bottled at a respectable 46.3% ABV and contains no colourants or additives.

    This looks amazing, something my husband would love. His birth is coming up soon as well.

    Hi Sherry, I think you might be outta luck on this one. Only 9000 bottles of this delicious whisky were produced and I'd wager most - if not all - purveyors have been sold out for quite some time now. If you're looking to sample it, I'd recommend visiting your local whisky bar and checking their list of Canadian whisky offerings. Your only other option would be to try and track down someone willing to give up their bottle? I've got one 2oz sample tucked away and, sorry, I'm keeping it all to myself! :) Good luck! Let us know if you find a bottle!
