Located 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.
