Gaelic for ‘peat stack’, this malt has strong influences of peat and sea salt. Burning grass, hay and sweet herbs burst into flavours of nuts, white pepper, seaweed and sea salt to give an intense smoky and spicy whisky.
Meaning ‘Peat Stack’ in Scots Gaelic, Cruach Mhona [pronounced croo-ach vona], was one of our first Travel Retail Exclusives and is the only Bunnahabhain Moine (peated malt) available exclusively to our World Travellers. The light golden tone belies a whisky of deeply complex flavours. An energetic burst of herbal malt and fruit is followed by rich spice and aromatic peat smoke.
This peaty dram combines the delicate, salty mist of the sea with the sweet scent of burning grass to create a lingering, smoky flavour.
