Cruach-Mhona, gaelic for 'peat stack', a pile of drying peat bricks cut for fuel, is a departure from Bunnahabhain's usual style, adding in some peat to their normally unpeated spirit. Originally released solely into travel retail.

    Having had 55 years' experience in tasting whisky, this is perhaps one of the most balanced peaty/smoky drops I have tasted.

    Strong but also so smooth & silky. Very nice. Could be more smokey but I don't mind cause balance is correct.

    Enjoying my first glass of this Islay Island Gem at this very moment... I love the smoky peat! No water needed!

    Tried this at Brisbane airport Duty Free yesterday. Very nice. Strong flavor with nice sweetness and fairly strong smoke. Tried some other stuff after this and they appeared insipid. Says much about the strength of the taste.

    Spectacular peat whiskey. Unlike some reviewers, I would not add water, drink it neat after sitting for a couple of minutes in the glass.

    Bought this whisky as I am a fan of Islay whiskies and was not disappointed. It is a little harsh before adding water however at 50% this was not unexpected. After adding water it really opened up and is a beautifully balanced peaty yet smooth whisky. Would definitely recommend!

    Strong & smoky. A dash of water makes all the difference. Much more smoother & mellow.

    picked this up in the airport for a great price and I have tried two glasses of this wonderful peated whisky. This is a great complex NAS whisky ( even if it is a touch expensive ) I found a rather pleasing note of tar, sweet peat , lemon(especially when a drop of water is added)Taste wise it is a great peat beast with a sweet spicey note, Reminds me slightly of the 1st or 2nd edition of Laphroiag cask strength left in the glass for a longer settling . It doesn't have the same nutty finish as the 12 YO,( it is there but it is much more subtle. but thats not a bad thing at all , this is a nicely crafted whisky that a peat lover should not overlook because of price... Try a sample before putting ya money down... I tried this against the laphroaig PX cask and Bruchladdie port charlotte 2007 CC:01( which is also great but tasted very, very similar to Auchentoshan Valinch ( also lovely )

    after being an advocate for 36 years i decided to treat myself to this whisky and i have to say no ragrets

    Tried this at DF and grabbed 2 - one a 60th birthday present for a close friend. He too loved it. The epitome Of "sweet peat". Expressive nose reminiscent of TWE's LG1 (Laga!) and Smokehead Lovely transition from nose to palate with tropical fruits and chocolate powder and a peppery finish complementng the peat. A bit too drinkable!

    A great dram
