    Darach Ur (pronounced Dar-ach oor) means "New Oak" in Scots Gaelic. That`s the new oak barrels used to mature this perfectly balanced mix of Bunnahabhain single malts. The guarded recipe is from our Master Distiller, Ian MacMillan. It`s a first in over 125 years of tradition at Bunnahabhain. The oak barrels are from a family run cooperage in Bardstown, Kentucky. Any yes, this is the first time they have been used for maturing single malt Scotch whisky. Only available exclusively in World Duty Free, Darach Ur is un-chillfiltered and retains its natural colour, with a higher strength ensuring the fresh sweetness of the oak is retained from barrel to bottle.
