Bunnahabhain Eirigh Na Greine Batch 04, 46,3%

Review #682
This is Gaelic for “Morning Sky” and is a limited edition made for travel retail. It is matured in Italian and French red wine casks. Fruity with caramel sweetness in the background in the smell. Red berries and just a hint of oak.

More intense in the taste. The red wine maturation starts to shine through. Loads of red berries, a little dried fruits, oak and hints of tannins. Unfortunately, not much happens in the finish, other than the initial flavours… At least it stays for a while with the sweetness most dominant.

In my opinion, it is a fine consistent dram, but if you don´t care much about wine cask matured whiskies, you should probably stay clear of this - or at least try it before buying! I, however, enjoyed it and will give this 84/100 (21/21/21/21).

  1. It is a drink – when it flows as spirit from the stills, or into oak casks, no one present expects any future for it but to be drunk; by angels or by men and women. champagne
