Winter is coming, and Bunnahabhain Cruach Mhona is a warming, smoky dram perfect for the occasion.  

Bunnahabhain distillery was constructed in 1881 by the Greenlees brothers, and first opened its doors in 1883. It's located on the island of Islay, with 11 employees and four massive stills – among the biggest in the industry, alongside Glenmorangie.
 
The experience of Bunnahabhain Cruach Mhona is like stepping outside in your best overcoat on a cold, damp morning while some neighbor close by has lit a cedar fire in his fireplace. You are warm and dry, but the world is filled with new flavors and smells … the damp grass around you, the freshness of the air coupled with the hint of a roaring fire somewhere nearby. It’s just nice. 
 
Bunnahabbhain is definitely and Islay single-malt, so you are gong to get some peat smoke in the dram. But Buannahabbhain is famous for being gentle on the peat, so it is never going to get up and grab you by the throat with chucks of toasted coal. Their whole idea is to make it warming and pleasant. Mission accomplished. But Bunnahabhain Cruach Mhona is normally only available at those duty-free shops in airports and cruise ship ports of call, so unless you have an overseas trip planned, grab up a bottle now to warm up your next cold winter’s day

Taken all together, the name Bunnahabhain Cruach Mhona translates roughly as “Stack of peat bricks by the mouth of a river.” It sounds far more romantic and exclusive when said in Gaelic, don’t you think?

Blended Whiskies are the result of years of craftsmanship and dedication. A master blender does not simply wake up one day with a profound ability to create a cohesive and enjoyable liquid. From nosing the liquid to working out quantities of each different grain and malt to go into the blend, a master blender can take years, if not decades, to train.
Investigating -- and to the surprise and thrill of everyone -- they found a single cask of Whisky in storage that no one knew about. It was now aged a full 40 years.
Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
Single malt stands for around 10% of the Scotch market. This is a malt containing only one grain, legally required to be barley in Scotland, and made at a single distillery.

A blended Scotch is a combination of different malts from different distilleries. It is typically made from grain Whisky but does include malt Whisky to give it a more complex body.
