Bunnahabhain Eirig Na Greine is the perfect dram for a cold winter day.  
 
Bunnahabhain distillery was constructed in 1881 by the Greenlees brothers and first opened its doors in 1883. It's located on the island of Islay, with 11 employees and four massive stills – among the biggest in the industry, alongside Glenmorangie.
 
In this tale, the part of Prince Charming is played by Ian MacMillan. Ian is the Master Distiller for the Scotch Whisky arm of Distell Group, who own the Bunnahabbain distillery. Under Ian’s guidance, Bunnahabbain has transformed itself from a production-focused distillery to a quality-focused one. These days, chill-filtering is taboo, and so is coloring or anything else artificial. 
 
First, this is a “travel retail” bottling. Experienced Whisky-lovers know that this means a full 1-liter bottle (as opposed to the 70 cl standard bottle) — basically, you get about 1/3 more spirit than the bottles sold down at the mega mart. Second, remember that it is an Islay Single malt, so the peat smoke is present. And you know… there’s always something about Bunnahabhain Whiskies that makes us think of a roaring fire on a cold winter day. 
 
That said, Bunnahabhain Eirig Na Greine is a 46.3% ABV bottle of Islay Single Malt love. It is a limited edition mixed up by their master blender each year, so there are a bunch of ages and casks in there. But all of those casks are premium red Wine casks. This means that you get the body and texture without the extra sweetness of a Sherry or Port cask. So we say that this is a great Whisky to drink with a steak or roast and it is beefy enough to stand up to your favorite cigar.

Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most Single Malts are matured longer, though).
90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
In 2012, a batch of old ledger books from the early 1960s were found in storage. Looking over the entries out of curiosity, one of the cellar-masters noticed an entry that he did not recognize, giving a storage location.
Blended Whiskies are the result of years of craftsmanship and dedication. A master blender does not simply wake up one day with a profound ability to create a cohesive and enjoyable liquid. From nosing the liquid to working out quantities of each different grain and malt to go into the blend, a master blender can take years, if not decades, to train.
Whisky distilling goes way back to 1494 when the first recorded batch was made by a posse of monks who acquired about 60 gallons of barley and decided to turn it into "aqua vitae". They created the first 1,500 bottles of Scotch in History.
