As Bunnahabhain celebrates the richness of its heritage and craftsmanship, the release of the 23 Years Old Feis Ile 2022 edition stands as a testament to the distillery's commitment to producing exceptional whiskies. Distilled on October 28, 1998, and bottled in January 2022 exclusively for the Feis Ile festival, this limited edition expression offers a unique twist with its Calvados Cask Finish.
This exquisite single malt Scotch whisky spent 23 years maturing in traditional oak casks, absorbing the coastal influences of the Islay region. Bunnahabhain, known for its unpeated style, allows the natural flavors of the malt to shine through, creating a distinctive and complex character.
Calvados Cask Finish:
What sets this release apart is the additional layer of complexity imparted by the Calvados cask finish. Calvados is an apple brandy from the Normandy region in France, and its influence on the Bunnahabhain 23 Years Old is a stroke of genius. The cask finish introduces fruity and apple orchard notes, elevating the whisky to new heights of sophistication.
Upon the first nosing, the Bunnahabhain 23 Years Old Feis Ile 2022 reveals a symphony of aromas. Rich and honeyed with a hint of coastal saltiness, it captivates the senses. The apple notes from the Calvados cask make a subtle entrance, accompanied by delicate floral undertones.
The palate is a journey of complexity, with layers of toffee, vanilla, and oak intertwining seamlessly. The maritime influence becomes more pronounced, with a gentle brininess that complements the orchard fruits beautifully. The Calvados cask contributes a delightful apple pie sweetness, creating a harmonious balance.
The finish is long and lingering, leaving behind a warmth that carries echoes of the Islay coastline. The interplay between the traditional oak and Calvados cask creates a memorable and distinctive whisky experience.
