In what will be seen as a positive move to whisky connoisseurs, Bunnahabhain have decided to bottle the 18 year old without chill-filtration and without colouring. This has a salted caramel taste leading to sticky toffee pudding sprinkled with nutmeg. It's quite dense with a rich sherried note. On a second wave roast chestnuts emerge and gentle wood spice. The finish is warming and lengthy; salt and sherry towards the very end. Bunnahabhain without chill-filtration is dense and oily and shows off its sherried credentials with ease.
|Hiro Sake is a world class; hand crafted Japanese Sake, created using Japanese expertise with an uncompromising approach to quality. The golden rice fields together with the water from the subterranean river beds, skirting the Miomote river in Murakami, Niigata prefecture, are the perfect setting for brewing our
super-premium Japanese Sake. Our Toji or Sake Master has created an exquisite brew that bridges the heritage of the past with today’s modern drinking patterns. Although Japanese Sake is thought of as the traditional rice “wine” of Japan, the fermentation process used to produce Japanese Sake more closely resembles beer production.
