  1. Ganga scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Hmm, I am normally not a wine casked whisky nut but this one works well. You get some of the wine influence as a topping to the oak flavors and aromas. I am actually pleased to have a liter bottle of this to enjoy over the next few years.

    The golden color. Greasy and oily whisky.
    • Nose
      80 80
      At first, the nose is not very intense. Delicate notes of red fruit and raisins. Some citrus. Traces of salt. Fresh fruit, rather red. With time, you can feel them more and more, although the nose is still not the most intense. Only later does the vanilla come out. After a sip it got a little fresher and more intense.
    • Taste
      81 81
      Pretty sweet at first. Rather smooth. Vanilla. Fruity notes. Salty caramel. More and more salt. Traces of red fruit and raisins. Some dark chocolate. Cocoa. Bitterness. Spices. Black pepper and chili. Salty caramel again.
    • Finish
      80 80
      Sweet and salty with hints of bitterness. Salty caramel. Dark chocolate. Spices. Black pepper. Salt. Pretty long.

  8. Whisky Hamster scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    One of the better unpronounceable NAS bottlings of Bunna. The wine notes work nicely on this one.

  9. AXEoftheNORTH scored this whisky 90 points Member Senior

    NOSE: Floral, sweet aromas that appear fruity and spicy on the nose.

    TASTE: The Eirigh Na Greine Single Malt Whisky shows a sweet, slightly sea salt clinging creaminess, which is influenced by a finely developed smoke note. The fruity red wine influence fits perfectly into the Bunnahabhain distillery character. The Bunnahabhain Eirigh Na Greine shows an extremely successful balance and shines with a voluminous body.

    FINISH: Long with intense aromas and a precise finish.

    At first I wasn't sure if this one was for me, but persistence pays as I found myself liking it more and more. This Bunna expression is intensely aromatic, with an intruiging bittersweet wine character and aftertaste.
    • Nose
      84 84
      astringent (blackcurrent), heavy on the tannins (heavy red wine or sherry), stewed apples, apricot, mince pie
    • Taste
      86 86
      spicy and sweet, this is where wine finish really comes to prominence
    • Finish
      85 85
      medium long and complex, fruity with a hint of bitterness as it fades

  15. Torfkind scored this whisky 68 points Member Senior

    The nose is typically nutty, paired with delicious fruitiness and acidity. In terms of taste, it starts out with a sweet and fruity taste, but ends with an unpleasant metallic note.

  17. Tangtang_WhiskyYoda scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    delicious tasty malt with good PLV. You don't taste red wine barrels. Has more of a sherry barrel
    • Nose
      Smoky and spicy with notes of dried fruit, the first impression is reminiscent of a sherry ripening. Then there are maritime notes followed by sweetness with caramel. Getting nutty
    • Taste
      sweet but also a lot of pepper, then fruity. Spicy. Here, too, the dried fruits (sherry), later nutty with hints of caramel. Becoming oily in the end
    • Finish
      Smoky spicy sweet with berries, dried fruits (sherry). Then tart, nuts and a little chocolate. Medium length

    Tasted on 11-28-2019 at "Rauchbar" in Neuss.

  20. 2ndSip scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    complex (sweet and heavy) on the nose and intense in taste, without significant smoke.
    • Nose
      90 90
      at first very, very, very light smoke. Sweetness of grapes (the red wine barrels get through well). Spicy and oak aroma. Roasted flavors: roasted nuts, also goes in the direction of marzipan. Dried fruits (red & heavy in aroma). Some caramel. Orange fruit flavor. Slightly maritime touch. Very complex on the nose. If he stands and breathed something, then still sweet figs and dates.
    • Taste
      85 85
      creamy-oily, salivation sets in quickly, syrupy. Spice builds up. Red fruits. Oak note and nuts. Orange comes through again. Then the maritime with a hint of sea salt. Slight bitterness, but well integrated. Gets drier out the back.
    • Finish
      82 82
      medium to long. Oak and spice together with red fruits. Nut flavors remain on the palate for a long time.

  22. dramspotter scored this whisky 78 points Connoisseur

    I am not sure what I was expecting but probably not this - it seems pleasantly drinkable but I don't know what it is trying to be - it seems like a Highland malt that has been finished in something sweet
    • Nose
      must, hay, green apple
    • Taste
      I can hardly notice the alcohol; it is watery with a lacing of berries
    • Finish
      short->medium; some fruit salad and plenty of maltiness; biscuity

    This Bunna, which is only found in airports, has partially matured in barrels that have contained red wine. Slightly peaty on the nose, with generous fruits behind, more and more as you get used to peat. Already feels that he is relatively strong in alcohol. A little sugar candy side, and also a vegetal note. On the palate, it is well done, though, it may be consensual and a little too muscular in alcohol. Fruity despite everything. A lot of presence. With a little water, the peat now gives on a casual side evoking the ham! In the mouth, the alcohol has now cleared and we have something very well balanced, beautiful presence, an undeniable sweet side. Final satisfactory. Enthusiasm 3/5
