From the book 'The Scotish Collection' Classic Malts by Carol P. Shaw :
Tasting notes : Less characteristically peaty than some other Islay malts, Bunnahabhain is a mellow whisky with an aromatic flavour, and a smooth, long finish. Taste rating = 3
Bunnahabhain, on the north shore of Islay, is one of the more isolated of the island's distilleries. Founded in 1881, it has changed very little in the invervening century despite expansion in the 1960's. All its production formerly went into blends. Bunnahabhain was owned by the Islay Distillery Company who bought Glen Rothes Distillery in 1887, together forming the Highland Distilleries Company. They still own Bunnahabhain today.

From the Whisky pilot by Uniqum Systems :
Bunnahabhain Distillery was founded in 1883 by two farmers, close to the mouth of the River Margadale which also is used as the watersource for the distillery. The distillery was later merged with Glenrothes-Glenlivet, to form Highland Distilleries Co. Extended from two to four stills in 1963.
Bunnahabhain means "mouth of the river".
Prior to the building of this distillery which is the island's most northerly, the adjacent area was inhospitable and uninhabited. Now a small hamlet has built up around the distillery.
Situated towards the north east tip of Islay on the bay from which it takes its name.

Navnet Bunnahabhain er gallisk og betyder flodmunding. 

Destilleriet ligger ved mundingen af floden Margadale. 

Islay Malts er normalt kraftige og en anelse salt i smagen, men Bunnahabhain er den blødeste og mest delikate af alle Islay Malts.
