Distillery : Bunnahabhain / Country : Scotland / Reference: : 23192

Cruach-Mhona means peat stack in Gaelic. This whisky differs from the unpeated Single Malts with marine accents of the Bunnahabhain Distillery.

Its light golden colour hides a whisky with deep and complex flavours. An energetic burst of malt and herbal fruit is followed by a rich smoke of spices and aromatic peat.

This peat combines the delicate salt mist of the sea with the sweet scent of burning grass to create a lingering and smoky flavour.

This peaty Single Malt follows the heavily peated version of Bunnahabhain Toiteach. It is presented in a 1 liter bottle.

Established in 1881, the Bunnahabhain distillery has developed a unique style inspired from its legacy. Its philosophy is to offer the most natural whisky, almost completely hand crafted and aged on the famous Isle of Islay.

Bunnahabhain means the “mouth of the river” in Gaelic. It is located at the mouth of the river Margadale, on the strait that separates Islay from the Isle of Jura, in the north. It has always been a famous land mark for Scottish sea-farers coming back home. The mariner we can see on each label of Bunnahabhain whisky is inspired by this anecdote.

Bunnahabhain is a noble, light and delicate whisky characterized by an exceptional mellowness and a hint of peat. In the beginning, the distillery produced an oily, peated whisky with its own malting house and its peat kilns to dry the malt. Only in 1963, with the arrival of new owners, the distillery turned to a non-peated, malted barley from which originates the fruity, spicy and maritime character of the whisky, without any peat. Over the last few years, the distillery rediscovers its legacy with the limited editions of highly peated whiskies such as the Cèobanach, meaning “smoky mist” in Gaelic, succeeding to the “Toiteach”.
