  1. Myke scored this whisky 86 points Expert Junior

    complex (sweet and heavy) on the nose and intense in taste, without significant smoke.
    • Nose

      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.

      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.

      medium to long. Oak and spice together with red fruits. Nut flavors remain on the palate for a long time.

  3. 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
