The James Macarthur brand of single cask single malt is not well known in the states, but they've been around for nearly three decades and offer some unique expressions from high quality distillers. This very young Bunnahabhain is much more gentle than the average Islay, without the use of peat-dried barley, but offers subtle aromatics and a interesting saline quality. The exceptional price and unique qualities of this cask are what first intrigued us, but the amazing price reduction is what sealed the deal. If you're looking to better understand the old unpeated malt from the north shores of Islay, this is a must try. F. Paul Pacult give this fun young whisky the following review, " ... This opening nosing is rife with fresh-off-the-still flowery scents ... as well as deft touches of sea salt and damp grain ... Entry is gently sweet in a grainy, cereal-like manner that also flashes a flavor of tropical fruits (bananas, guavas) ... the flavor profile is vibrantly spiky, intensely spirity, grainy sweet ..." *** A respectable three stars.
