Stiùireadair (Gaelic meaning: Helmsman)
Men like the helmsman provided Bunnahabhain with a lifeline to the mainland
A complex malt with a rich sherry influence and aromas of fruit, nuts and spices

As any sailor will tell you, making the right decisions and battling the elements is part of getting where you want to be. Building our distillery in such a remote location wasn't the easy choice, but it was the right one. Chosen for its gentle coastal climate, abundance of clear spring water and natural harbour, the mouth of the river - or Bunnahabhain - became home to a unique, unpeated Islay whisky. Making the right choices is also pivotal in Stiùireadair. Our blender has spent a lot of time carefully selecting casks with spirit of varying ages from the corners of our shore side warehouses to create this distinctive dram, with its rich characterful heart, typical of Bunnahabhain, thanks to the high proportion of sherry casks we use. And we avoid chillfiltering so you can enjoy its full flavour as nature intended.

Tasting Notes
Colour amber gold. Nose: dried fruit, caramel and sweet vanilla.
Palate: creamy and smooth with hints of nuts, gentle spice and coastal sea salt.
Finish: long and lingering with hints of rich, dried fruit.

Very good price. Hot!
Clearly the brand was named after the makers had drank rather a lot of it.

Funnily enough they spelt it wrong "Bunnahahain" lol - but searching "Bunnahabhain" still returns it in the results.
I'm always leaving my phone unlocked in my pocket too.

Would you like to make that a double for just £1 more?

Unpeated islay whisky .


It doesn't have to be peated to be from Islay, just because that's the style that the other distilleries use it doesn't mean they all have to do it For what it's worth, Bunnahabhain is an amazing whisky! Did you know that you can also get peated highland and speyside whiskies

Stiùireadair, pronounced "stew-rahdur".

Indeed.
Try a dram of Bruichladdich Classic Laddie, also an unpeated Islay but very good nonetheless.
OOS...

Wow, that would be the deal of the day
Managed to grab the last bottle from the Stirling branch.
Very happy considering I live 180 miles away from it.

Cheers OP.

Best place to get the 12yo on a deal is usually Morrison's
