Bunnahabhain 20 Years Old Murray McDavid 1979 is a single cask malt from the Islay distillery Bunnahabhain, bottled by Murray McDavid. The whisky was distilled in March 1979 and matured for 20 years in ex-bourbon cask #MM2080. It was bottled in April 1999 at 46%. Bunnahabhain is one of the nine active distilleries on Islay. It was founded in 1881 by William Robertson together with the brothers William and James Greenlees. The village of Bunnahabhain was founded at the same time to house the distillery’s workers. Bunnahabhain was in the ownership of Highland Distilleries Company Limited for most of its existence, until Edrington took over Highland Distillers in 1999 and mothballed Bunnahabhain for a short period. Not long after, Burn Stewart Distillers acquired the distillery and launched a major rebrand of its core range. Bunnahabhain has been in the hands of the South African company Distell since 2014.
