One fateful night at my favorite food and spirits spot in in Seattle called Damn The Weather, I tried a Bunnahabhain called Ceòbanach (please don’t ask me how to pronounce that) that simply knocked me out.
This Islay Island distiller is best known for unpeated bottlings with a sweet subtle sea and salt palette but this dram was really something else. It had a surprisingly earthy, peaty punch with a fine smoky finish. Wow – it was fantastic!
But now the dilemma – that was literally the last they had of this bottling at DtW and I’ve only come across it once since (at The Whisky House in San Diego). Despite looking at shops around the world, I can’t find a bottle anywhere.
If you know where to find this fine whisky anywhere in the world (preferably near a major airport), let me know.
