Artist Collective 2.0 Bunnahabhain Moine 11 YO 2007


From 1963 to 1997, the Bunnahabhain distillery produced an unpeated single malt. Since then, it has made amends, as demonstrated by this “very small batch” distilled in 2007 which examines peat in all its guises. In turns, mellow, camphoric, vegetal, medicinal, oily, chocolatey, salty, smoky, ashy, gamey and even fruity, peat is omnipresent. It occupies almost all of the palette of flavours and aromas, which takes the taster literally head on. Fans of this fossilized organic matter – and there are many – will be licking their lips.

The rich initial nose reveals a mellow, camphoric and vegetal (lichen) peat. It becomes increasingly medicinal and simultaneously fruity (white grape). The velvety peat has become chocolatey and smoky. Lichee and raspberry also make a noteworthy entrance. The long finish sees peat definitively gain the upper hand. Animal notes (bacon, smoked fish) appear alongside smoke rings from a Havana cigar. Small Batch of 3 casks – Hogsheads.

Distillery Profile:
In the same way, each of the single malts found in our new Artist Collective range draws the richness of their olfactory and gustatory palettes from the marriage of various casks. Devoted to diversity, every region and every style of Scottish single malt, peated and unpeated, are represented.

Within this range we also find 43%, 48%, 57.1% (100 proof) and cask-strength bottlings. To illustrate the labels of the seven bottlings in our second collection, La Maison du Whisky has called on contemporary artists from very different backgrounds. Each of them brings their own very personal touch that echoes the richness of the single malts selected!
