BUNNAHABHAIN STAOISHA 8 ans 2013 Whisky Live Paris 2022 Antipodes S.V


Following up the Caol Ila 10 Year Old distilled in 2011 and found in our A La Conquête des Origines catalogue was quite a challenge, but one that this Whisky Live Paris 2022 edition of Bunnahabhain Staoisha meets brilliantly. Embodying the powerful and rustic style of the single malt produced at Islay’s most discreet distillery, its palette of flavours and aromas explores every possible nuance of a peat that brings lots of verve to the tasting. Although rooted in its native land, on the retro-nasal olfaction it has no qualms venturing into the world of Jamaican rums and even going as far as to outdo them.

Tasting Notes

Colour : Deep burnished gold.

Nose : Fresh yet heady. The very fine first nose reveals fragrances of toasted malted barley and slightly empyreumatic notes (sleet). Allowed to breathe, a lemony and ashy peat takes over, while notes of vanilla, bitter orange and heady florals (iris, lily) appear. Gradually, beeswax, green liquorice and dark chocolate coat the taste buds.

Palate : Lively yet creamy. On the attack, a now oily, salty and floral (broom, mimosa) peat takes centre stage. It brings with it flavours of barley sugar, candied fruit (pineapple, lemon) and wildflower (dandelion, daisy) that add copiously to the mid-palate. Sleet, ash and soot notes then take the flavour palette into a very empyreumatic register.

Finish : Long, silky. Immediately, notes of Poire Belle-Hélène and profiteroles underscore the rich character at the start of the finish. The nobly spicy end of the finish (saffron, nutmeg) is saturated with intense smoke, and spicy (curry) and exotic (very ripe banana) flavours. The retro-nasal olfaction bears the marks of an empyreumatic flavour palette capable of rivalling most Jamaican rums. The empty glass is malty, ashy and rich (porridge).
