Bunnahabhain 1998 Manzanilla Finish Feis Ile 2023 Release has been created to celebrate Fèis Ìle 2023 (the Islay Festival). This cask strength Limited Edition has been finished in Manzanilla sherry casks to create a warming and welcoming dram, with notes of sea salt and spice.

This Limited Edition whisky was distilled on 28 October 1998 and filled into American Oak casks before being transferred to first-fill Manzanilla sherry casks on the 25 May 2016 to finish.  

Manzanilla sherry is famed for being coastal, salty and nutty - characteristics that are similar to the Bunnahabhain spirit.  Although lesser known and not produced as often as some other sherries, Manzanilla sherry is something the Bunnahabhain Master Blender and Master Distiller love to use. 

It's bottled at cask strength to give an intense, concentrated flavour. Like all whiskies in the Bunnahabhain range, this festival release has no added colour and is non-chill filtered.

Chestnut gold

Notes of freshly baked pastry with sweet almonds, rose petals, grapefruit and dried spices. These are balanced with touches of mahogany and incense

The coastal influences of seaweed and fresh sea air are met with raisins and dates, all intertwined with creamy fudge, waxed red apples and a warm sweet spice reminiscent of star anise 

Spicy and aromatic with caramelised walnuts. The star anise gently fades to reveal lemon peel and pears with lingering notes of sea salt
