Cruach Mhóna is gaelic for a pile of drying peat bricks and follows on from Toiteach (gaelic for smoky) as a peaty offering from Bunnahabhain. Although Islay is famed for its peat, Bunnahabhain’s spirit is unpeated (this being an exception that proves the rule).

NOSE:
Peat and vanilla, creosote, dried herbs, harbour rope, sweet biscuits and orchard fruit.

TASTE:
Sweet and smoky, lemon, salt and pepper. Beneath there’s oak and malt and hints of sand dune.

FINISH:
More sweet smoke and citrus.
