We consider the Bouchaud trap model on the integers in the case that the trap distribution has a slowly varying tail at infinity. We prove that the model eventually localises on exactly two sites with overwhelming probability. This is a stronger form of localisation than has previously been established in the literature for the Bouchaud trap model on the integers in the case of regularly varying traps. Underlying this result is the fact that the sum of a sequence of i.i.d. random variables with a slowly varying tail is asymptotically dominated by the maximal term.
