Four long decades have crawled by as this precious whisky slowly and silently matured within the Bunnahabhain warehouses by the sea. Indeed, the casks that this whisky was maturing in were all but forgotten, until the Bunnahabhain blending team 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! As with all our single malt whiskies, this is non-chill filtered and natural colour.
