One of the latest labels to appear on the TTB database belongs to the new Bunnahabhain expression. Bunnahabhain Toiteach a Dhà, meaning ‘Smoky Two’ in Gaelic, is said to be the successor to the distillery’s smoky Toiteach expression.

TTB Public Registry has been a good source of information regarding the upcoming new spirits. It should also not be forgotten that there are always possibilities the whisky or any other spirit, even with label approval, may not make it to the market for any reason. Until we receive an official statement from the distillery itself, everything we discuss here should be treated as buzz…

According to the labels, Bunnahabhain Toiteach a Dhà will be a NAS (Non-Age Statment) whisky with 46.3% ABV. As a common practice with all Bunnahabhain core expressions. It comes as un-chill filtered and in natural colour.

The back label provides some more insight into this edition. It reads;

Bunnahabhain Toiteach a Dhà is a sequel to the original peaty paradox of our classic Bunnahabhain whiskies. A touch of smoke from our peated malted barley is introduced during its creation, combined with a higher sherry influence to give the whiskey a unique taste that provides a truly beguiling experience.

On the same label, Andrew Brown, distillery manager for Bunnahabhain defines the expression as;

“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 an delicatelly sweet sherry influence”
