    Raisins, rich & fruity. A bit soapy, subtle smoke. Very smooth

    A delicious drop, bold, winery, not too sweet with the cask appearing with a slight espresso bitterness. Well balanced.

    The Eirigh Na Greine is party matured in both Italian and French Red Wine casks, and available as a relatively limited 'travel retail exclusive' NAS release. The Red Wine influences are immediately noticeable on the nose. This isn't marketed as one of Bunnahabhain peated whisky's, but I do seem to notice some slight peat smoke. I also find some dark fruits, a hint of vanilla, and some salt. This comes all back on the palate, joined by fresh oak (some bitterness), a pinch of spicy pepper, and more fresh fruit - most obviously berries. The taste lingers on a while after swallowing, leaving mostly a slightly salty, but winey impression. Despite the NAS, this drams is pretty balanced, and doesn't seem to be really that young. The Red Wine influences are there, but not dominant, and the combination with the hint of peat smoke is delightful.

    I wouldn't tell it's a NAS. The wine cask is obvious and the whisky is bold but well rounded.
