Bunnahabhain Ceòbanach Islay Single Malt. Image courtesy Bunnahabhain/Burn Stewart Distillers.Ceòbanach means “smoky mist” in Scots Gaelic (by the way, it’s pronounced “kyaw-BIN-och”), and the nose on this Bunnahabhain has a misty touch of smoke and brine, along with oat cake cookies, toasted oak, and sweet touches of fudge and honey. The taste is sweet and malty at first, then turns smoky with barbecue sauce, hints of grilled pineapple, briny wet sand, and vanilla. The finish is smooth with a soft smokiness and subtle hints of spices and fruit. Very nice. (February, 2015)
