House style: Gentle, malty, nutty and sometimes salty with an oiliness that blends well with a fresh sweetness. Built in in an otherwise desolate area of Islay,it sits on the mouth of the river Margadale on the sound of Islay. the small village of Bunnahabhain (pronounced boon-a-hav-en) means "mouth of the river"
Initially the malt made was a heavily peated style, infact the site was chosen for its abundant supplies of local peat. Since the early 20th century Bunnahabhain has been unpeated and is now the lightest of all the Islat whiskies.
