G&M – The MacPhail’s Collection – Bunnahabhain 2006 (43%)

We all love reviewing (and reading reviews of) the 1955 Linlithgos and the £2500 latest Port Ellens, but in truth, a blog should have many more daily dram reviews than those stellar outliers, and here’s a classic daily dram.

Fèis Ìle Bunnahabhain Open Day – What Does the Helmsman Drink?

In 2014 (and 2015), Bunnahabhain released two festival releases, one is the “normal” festival bottling and another is an older “exclusive” bottling, priced accordingly. This year, there is an 11 year old called Rubha A’ Mhail (pronounced ‘rooaval’) that was fully matured in Manzanilla sherry butts, and an 18 year old Moscatel finish, kept in Moscatel wine hogsheads for two…
