Ceòbanach (kyaw-bin-och), which means ‘smoky mist’ in Scots Gaelic.
Ceòbanach reflects the origins of Bunnahabhain, both the place and the single malt’s charming, complex character. This edition is heavily peated, thus displaying the old style of production for this iconic distillery.
This expression pairs perfectly with food, especially seafood and chocolate (although not necessarily at the same time).
The nose is intense and pungent, with hints of fragrant smoke and light tar, and creamy notes of sweet oak and seaweed. The initial taste is one of sweet maltiness, then a lovely balance of a tangy smokiness and vanilla notes, blending mellow and smooth.
