Released for the Travel Retail market, An Cladach from Bunnahabhain is a sherry-driven expression with enough spiced backing it up to balance the sweetness handsomely. The name means “The Shore” in Scots Gaelic – apt, considering Bunnahabhain’s location on the north-east coast of Islay.
NOSE: Almond and cherry, fruity coffee, a hint of damp oak.
TASTE: Raisin, more cherry, black pepper and clove. A touch of walnut.
FINISH: Medium length with sherried malt in charge.
