A limited edition from Bunnahabhain on Islay, the Canasta 1980 was matured in oloroso sherry casks before spending 'a few months' in sweet Canasta sherry casks. The result is a complex and many layered whisky, with Bunnahabhain's oily and fruity spirit character carefully combined with dried fruit, treacle and chocolate notes.
