  • Bunnahabhain Toiteach A Dha

    Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky

    70cl / 46.3%

    5 (4 Reviews)

    Bunnahabhain Toiteach A Dha

    The first peated whisky in Bunnahabhain's core range. Like the limited edition Toiteach that came before it, Toiteach A Dha (which means 'smoky two' in Scots Gaelic) is a smoky single malt with a sherry twist. Matured in both bourbon and sherry casks, with a higher sherry influence than Toiteach, this is a delicate mix of smoke and sweet sherry fruit.
