“Meaning 'Smoky Two' in Scots Gaelic, Toiteach A Dhà (pronounced Toch-ach ah-ghaa) is a sequel to the original peaty paradox on Bunnahabhain’s gentle single malt. To create this Mòine variant, our blending team selected a combination of ex Bourbon and Sherry casks which were then matured in full, in our coastal warehouses on Bunnahabhain Bay.
With touches of smoke from our peated malted barley, this whisky’s prickling strength emanates from the dram, while warming with a lingering, robust length and delicately sweet sherry influence.”-Distiller Notes
“Established in 1881, Bunnahabhain is the most northerly of the Islay distilleries and one of the most remote. Over-looking the sound of Islay, a vast stretch of sea travelled by many a seafarer, as illustrated by our Helmsman iconography, the name Bunnahabhain means ‘mouth of the river’ and refers to the Margadale River from whose clear spring waters the whisky is distilled. Bunnahabhain is the only distillery on Islay to produce whisky using pure spring water and also boasts the tallest stills on Islay, both of which combine to produce a light, aromatic and complex spirit.
At Bunnahabhain all our single malt is un-chillfiltered and natural colour – the way whisky would have been produced at the hands of our forebears many years ago.”-Distillery Notes
