Calvados Cask Finish 1998 Fèis Ìle 2022 Single Malt Scotch Whisky
The Islay Festival – known locally as Fèis Ìle – is a chance for fans of the island’s whisky to come together and rejoice in its brilliance. But don’t worry if you missed Fèis Ìle 2022, because there were loads limited-edition whisky releases. And this is one of the rarest…
Distilled in 1998, this sublime whisky spent over two decades maturing in Bunnahabhain’s coastal warehouse. In November 2019, it was filled into casks that had previously held a sweet and fruity French Calvados. It remained there for almost two years, before being bottled at 49.7%, non-chill filtered and with natural colour for Fèis Ìle 2022. Calvados-finished Scotch is not something you see every day, especially a 23-year-old expression. Expect toffee apple, pear drops, apple pie, crunchy cider, granola, dried fruits, spice, orchard blossom, pine, barley sugar and Medjool dates. This is Bunnahabhain as we’ve never tasted it before.
Probably one of the most difficult single malts to pronounce, but Bunnahabhain is without doubt one of the easiest to drink. You’ll find this legendary malt maker down a misty single track road on the east side of Islay. Pronounced ‘boona-havn’, it’s the most northerly of the island’s distilleries and it likes to do things a little differently. Rather than chasing ever peatier and smokier styles like its neighbours, Bunnahabhain creates unpeated or lightly peated, silky smooth and creamily drinkable drams.
