Bunnahabhain 25 Year Old pre-2010
The Bunnahabhain 25 year old was first launched in 2006. This version dates from between 2006 and 2010, prior to Distell increasing the ABV of the distillery's products to its signature 46.3%. It was rebranded as the Small Batch 25 year old in 2018 along with the rest of the core range.
An austere piece of Victorian architecture on the north-east coast of Islay, Bunnahabhain is a relative outsider on the island, traditionally known for producing an un-peated single malt. The majority of this was used for blending, as was its initial intended purpose. The distillery was shut for 2 years in 1982 following the market downturn of the period, and despite being revived at low production, it was eventually officially bottled as a single malt later that decade, with the self-deprecating tag-line, "the un-pronounceable malt."
