Exciting New Eight Eight Series from Cask 88!
Only 88 Bottles of Each Expression Available!
This Islay single malt is part of award-winning bottler, Cask 88’s, brand new “Eighty Eight Series”. Each bottle in the series has been matured in a quarter cask, allowing enthusiasts to experience the impact of cask size on the maturation process.
The final expression in the series is this delicious 9 Year Old from Islay’s popular Bunnahabhain distillery. The lightly peated spirit was initially matured in a refill sherry butt before spending its last 3 months before bottling in the ex-sherry quarter cask. The results are a relatively light and fruity sherry-bomb that brings faint smoke and juicy lemon on the nose followed by cracked black pepper, beach fire and marmalade on burnt toast. Then comes the long and warming finish with more bonfire and lingering smoke. It’s a perfectly well-rounded dram that is smooth and easy to drink, despite being only 9 Years Old. With only 88 bottles produced, this is one of the rarest releases of the year.
