  1. SVWRamius scored this whisky 84 points Member Senior

    The Eirigh na Greine tastes very pleasant combined, a bit as if nuts something delicious cooked to feel good. It does not look exotic at all and is not as diverse as one would expect. He seems to me strangely familiar and triggers well-being. Very pleasant Bunna.
    • Nose
      Amaronerotwein in which Werther's Real Caramel Sweet has fallen.
    • Taste
      Creamy-soft, sweet cocoa (a bit like the homemade mix with milk and cocoa powder), later turns into boiled milk with honey, light touch white pepper in the background, blackberry jam with a hint of orange in the background.
    • Finish
      Long with strong oak notes, but not too bitter, warm, very pleasant. The oak gives way to a fruity sweet note after a while.

  3. Koalafant scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Bunnah-typical breeze with floral, fruity tones of gooseberry and raspberry. Slightly alcoholic with a very subtle hint of smoke.
    • Taste
      Spicy sweetness with notes of exotic fruits and a very subtle bitterness.
    • Finish
      Medium length and slightly dry.

  4. EvilAFI scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Nutty, strong nose , tart fruit and wine on palate, maritime salinity on finish. A bit brash, strong and unrefined.

  7. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    Nose: fruity, vinous, nutty, a little young, sweet.
    Mouth: full, strong, nutty, spicy oak, some wine.
    Finish: sweet, beautiful wine notes combined with the nutty Bunnahbhain. Very long and sweet rather than dry from the wood. Conclusion: a nice whisky, very tasty, if not too complex. The wine notes are doing really well here.

    A very neat Islay Malt from Travel Retail (liters);
    [Color] full gold;
    • Nose
      fruity (pear?), spicy, nutty, salty, vanilla;
    • Taste
      powerful, fruity onset, spicy (oak, ginger, pepper), dry red wine on the palate;
    • Finish
      long finish; getting dry, seasoning sounds;

  9. childofbodom696 scored this whisky 78 points Expert Senior

    Aroma: light aroma, slightly cooling alcohol, malty sweet, rosehip, some vanilla
    Taste: slight pungency, rosehip, light nut bitterness, looks young, one-dimensional
    Finish: medium in length, becomes slightly dry and bitter

    No wine noticeable. Relatively young and one-dimensional - relatively expensive.
