Toiteach a Dhà Bottling Note

If the movie industry has proven anything (apart from Tom Hanks being a treasure), it's that people love a good sequel. Well, that idea is coming over to the whisky world - this right here is Bunnahabhain's Toiteach a Dhà, which means "Smoky Two" in Gaelic. It's the sequel to their popular peaty treat Bunnahabhain Toiteach, featuring a much more up-front core of sherried spice shining out between the smoky plumes.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Roasted peanuts, cinnamon and red chilli flakes, blackcurrant and Port.

Palate: Sea salt and kippers, dark chocolate, sultanas, a touch of cantaloupe.

Finish: Barley, dry smoke and pepper.

Bunnahabhain Toiteach a Dhà Reviews

Not as heavy a peat as many others so it's a nice change of pace

I've tried more Scotch in my 76 years than most and his one is smooth and easy to love. Certainly well worth the modest price.

Brilliant malt really nice and smokey.

Meeting Pete for the first time

Nose: A peaty haemophiliac nose...air is lethal to it.

Palate: A mildly sour note to an otherwise pedestrian whiskey, which is an inoffensive introduction to peated whiskey.

After: Adequate, friendly, never going to get stopped by the cops.

Very good

Not quite as good as Bruichladdich "laddie" but excellent (but then I used to live in Bruichladdich)

Impress your friends.

Wanted to expand inventory, and glad for this one. Extra layer of smoke comes in at the end, like a Boss. Nose is definitely port and b’currant. Touches all the bases. Well the naming convention.

Please try it

This was amazing. I tried this as I was trying to get into lightly peated whisky (bought a 3cl sample). It was so smooth, smelt liked smoked Bavarian ham/smoked cheese on the nose. No harshness at all. At £42 I’d definitely buy a bottle

Just beautiful

Love this whisky, I add 6.5ml of spring water, to 43.5ml of whisky, a double at 40% volume, just beautiful

For its price, excellent! Mixes well with sherry bombs

In sweden we get the pleasure of paying 33£ for this wonderful dram.

Close to a year ago I got a bottle to share with my wifes granddad during a joint vacation, I hated every drop of this.
It tasted like garbish.
Like something was off, bad batch of peat I’d say!

I’ve been in love with Ardbeg & Laphroaig for close to 10 years now, having tasted hundreds of whiskies so far I reconed something must’ve gone terribly bad.

Got another bottle awhile ago and needless to say, I was right.
The new bottle I aqquired is wonderful (for its price range)

If you love peaty whisky and happen to find this for 30-40 pounds, give it a go!
P.S. Mixes very well with a heavy sherried whisky, I used 1.25 CL of Glenfarclas 17 to 1 CL of Bunnahabhain, a smoky, heavy sheried dram with a long lingering finish.

Something worth having a bottle of, but perhaps no more

I've been enjoying a couple of drams a week for about two months now and am still unsure as to how much I really like this whisky. There are a few things worth noting, however:

1) It's there, but the peatiness and smokiness is far more subtle than the well known, heavily peated whiskys (Laphroaig, Ardbeg, etc). If you're a peat monster this might not be for you.
2) The fruit flavors are very lively, I tend to get a lot of raisin and a little plum. It's not as overtly fruity as the sherry bombs of this world but it's certainly palatable.
3) The nose is where I get most of the smoke from - when I first smelled the nose I was expecting a really smokey dram but in actual fact it's a lot calmer than the nose leads you to believe.
4) The mouthfeel is quite oily and rich and certainly feels more like a sherried whisky than a peated one.
5) The finish long lasting but subtle - neither the smokiness promised by the nose, nor the fruitiness promised from the palate, is markedly present. Instead there a subtle creaminess to it with a hint of spice.

Given this description you're probably wondering why I'm still unsure about this whisky. Firstly I'd say if you have a chance try it and, if you don't mind doing so, buy a bottle and really give it a chance. It does change and open up once uncorked and this does alter the characteristics of it. Secondly, if you've got specific preference i.e. heavily-sherried, heavily-peated, etc then this whisky may not be for you as the flavours are not right in your face like say a Glendronach (sherried) or Ardbeg (peated) but they are present.

The reason why I'm torn over this whisky is that I'm not convinced the balance between the smoke and the fruit is entirely right. Are all those things there? Absolutely. Do they taste good? Yes. Do they complement each other? Hmmmm. I don't know. I am a rank amateur, but in my mind the balance isn't quite right or harmonious enough - for me it feels like rather than tasting the flavours together, as if in some sort of beautiful marriage, you get hits of one then the other then the other and it feels disjointed. What this is down to I do not know, and I certainly cannot say I haven't enjoyed drinking it, I'm just unconvinced that the balance and harmony is there and, as such, I'm not sure I'd buy another bottle.

Opinions are like bottoms, everyone has one and they stink!

Here's a top review, don't read reviews. There are some rather odd opinions to read. Get a sample, if you like it, buy the bottle, if you don't, move on.

18th May 2019

Like a smooth Octomore 8

Nose - raisins, Smoke, peat, apricots
Palate - more Raisins, Coffee, chocolate, smoke (but less than expected from the nose). Intense fired oak and peat.
Finish - smoke, vanilla, sherry pepper

A cracking dram. Tried an Octomore 8.1 a few weeks ago. Reminded me of this but less intense palate.

30th April 2019

Might as well lick the tire on your car

Burnt rubber, burnt rubber and more burnt rubber. So much so that it is actually unpleasant. Minimal finish, bitter and very short. Not a successful experiment. "The Chaps at Master of Malt" were clearly paid to write a favorable review.

26th April 2019

Very nice with a touch of Ardbeg

Nose: smoke, salty-fresh, tropical fruits
Palate: smoky and spicy, smooth with salt and herbs
Finish: seaside (and maybe a little bit fishy), dark chocolate, oak, very dry and long
All in All: very good Islay, deep and complex. He smells like the Ardbeg Uigeadail

10th April 2019

Excellent and one not to miss!

Initial hit of sherry and oranges with slight hint of oak.No pronouned astringency but slight dryness and pepper on the tongue with gentle hint of smoke.Warming with further notes of sherry and oranges in the finish.A lovely smooth whisky .

8th April 2019

Must be savoured

Love it best painkiller in the world beautiful must drink undiluted to appreciate the flavour

20th February 2019

One of their best!

Love the skippers review?

Lol Octomore is more then 2x the price, why do you even compare?
Ahh.. now I actually see that the first coment also refered to octomore.. I will post this comment anyway and I will buy the whiskey, if I don't come back for a review I'm probably still drunk.

Great whisky

Very peaty whisky but I prefer that.
Very good.

13th August 2018

Good Gift Choice For a Whiskey Beginner

All around, medium peated, medium ABV single malt. Solid gift choice for a whiskey beginner.

11th May 2018

Love the kippers!

Whoa!!! Love the dirty smoke smell but the taste? Not sure if I like it or not
Very salty Briney and I normally like that but quite a heavy lil number, jury is still out for me. Prefer Octomore 7.1 any day!

27th March 2018

Top notch !

A superb dram, dare I say it reminiscent of an Octomore. Very balanced and an absolute steal for the price !
