1979 Bunnahabhain 25 Lombard (2004)

This bottle is from the Lombard Scotch Whiskey under the Jewels of Scotland line. I don’t know too much about this company other than they made this bottle. I’ve had other Bunnahabhains, but just not as werid as this one. Really recommend it if you get a chance.
