Following on from the successful launch of the Wemyss Malts Cask Club with the inaugural bottling; ‘Smoky Nectar’ a 35 year old single cask Caol Ila, we have decided to continue the Islay whisky theme by releasing ‘An Antique Armchair’.

Named after the aromas and flavours found in the whisky ‘An Antique Armchair’ is a 1987 vintage, 31 year old Bunnahabhain matured exclusively in an ex-Sherry Butt. It has an outturn of 451 bottles and has been bottled in its original natural russet-like colour at an alcohol volume of 46%. Selected by famed whisky writer Charlie Maclean and noted by the Wemyss Malts tasting panel as another perfect example of an old Islay malt with leathery, earthy aromas as well as a long, deep and rich dried fruit character.
