  1. Myke 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.

    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

    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.

  5. tangtang scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    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

  8. ffmdino did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    he is really great
    the wine barrel came through well
    • Nose
      Red wine, sweet, dark
    • Taste
      soft on the palate
      sweet, red berry, really cool
    • Finish
      long
      slightly soapy

  9. 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
