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 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.

Bunnahabhain Distillery,Islay


Bunnahabhain is an Islay distillery that was established in 1881. Pronounced 'Boo-na-ha-ven' and meaning 'mouth of the river', Bunnahabhain is accessible along a winding road off the main road to Port Askaig. Its distillery is set round a courtyard in a style that resembles a château in Bordeaux. Despite expansion in 1963 the distillery is little changed.
Bunnahabhain is sometimes referred to as "the Islay whisky without the Islay character." Due to it being less peaty than other Islay malts Its light colour (for an Islay) is attributable to the fact that the spring water is drawn before it runs "over and through" the well-known Islay malt. This quality is further enhanced by the distill
