La Maison du Whisky’s Artist range is a collection of exceptional single malts that have been selected from the warehouses of Signatory Vintage. The range was first introduced in 2011 and is dedicated to showcasing the very best of each distillery. The range includes vintage bottlings aged for 10, 15, 20, 25, and 30 years, and sometimes longer, with each expression in the range dedicated to cask strength single casks.

The Bunnahabhain 1977 is a limited edition single cask #7602 that is one of the exceptional single malts featured in the Artist range. Despite being produced at a time when the distillery’s malt was either unpeated or only lightly peated, this whisky is a true representation of Islay’s single malts. Aged for an impressive 44 years in a sherry butt, this whisky has a very salty character and intensely peaty retro-nasal olfaction that are the undeniable proof of its origins.

The Bunnahabhain 1977 has a charming and voluptuous palette of flavors and aromas that demonstrate remarkable unity of tone, making it a rare and exceptional whisky that is a must-try for any whisky connoisseur. The packaging of the Bunnahabhain 1977 also features artwork by Gesine Arps, a painter, sculptor, and poet, who draws inspiration from the world around her. Her colorful and bright paintings give off a peaceful and warm vitality that takes us on a voluptuous poetic adventure, providing a unique and artistic touch to this exceptional whisky.

Tasting Notes

Colour : Old gold with green reflections

Nose : Ample, deep. Incredibly fresh, the initial nose is at once vanilla, lemony, minty and honeyed (acacia). After aeration, a green and rural landscape emerges. Dandelion flowers, scents of buttercup and honeysuckle divinely perfume the surrounding atmosphere. Farther away from the aromatic palette remains the imprint of a diaphanous peat. Gorgeous.

Palate : Rich, concentrated. Remarkably saline, the attack on the palate is marked by flavors of glasswort and green liquorice. Slender, the mid-palate reveals an invigorating malty bitterness. Then, spices (cinnamon, clove, nutmeg) spread voluptuously on each side of the palate. Gradually, fine particles of soot and dust appear.

Finish : Long, fresh. Adorned with a delicate exoticism (pineapple, plantain), the start of the finish recalls the liquorice stick glimpsed on the attack, which closely links these two tasting sequences. Infused with plants (chamomile, sage), the aftertaste takes on bright green hues. Resplendent with maturity, the retro-nasal olfaction evokes blocks of dry peat rich in silt and algae. From the empty glass escape aromas of precious wood, hemp and dark chocolate.
