New Bunnahabhain 12yo New Bunnahabhain 12yo 

Burn Stewart, owners of Bunnahabhain, Deanston, Tobermory and Ledaig (as well as Black Bottle) have revamped three of their malts (Deanston was already revamped a year or two ago) to bring them up to 46.3%, unchillfiltered and with new packaging.

Tobermory and Ledaig, being from the same distillery, have been given matching boxes and label designs tying them nicely together. Of the three new ones I have only tried the new Bunnahabhain at a recent festival and it was pretty tasty. I’ll need to try that against the old one which I still have from a recent review post, which is a classic malt in my opinion. 

Good to see another company raise their ABV and cut out the chill-filtering. I believe the colouring has also been left behind. Perhaps one day all malts will be like this.
