  1. Ostap scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Bruichladdich, for me, is one of those distilleries that doesn't make bad whisky. I don't honestly remember the failed releases. Or just beautiful or exciting. This whisky is just the latest. Ideal for both tasting and easy drinking. Rich and meaningful.
    • Nose
      91 91
      Very good, compact, dessert wine, sherry, sweet, a bunch of fruits, condensed milk, vanilla, custard, delicate smokiness and smoked meat, raspberries, glazed cornflakes. Gradually the sherry side of the whisky changes to rich bourbon, then vice versa. Great game. Appears cloves, green tomato, iris and milk chocolate, marinade with a bunch of spices, paint notes. After a sip, citrus and tropical notes appear. Not alcoholic.
    • Taste
      91 91
      Condensed milk, citrus, banana, chocolate, salty notes. Deliciously.
    • Finish
      90 90

    Colour: amber

    Mouth: sweet, strong dryness, pepper, dried fruits, berries, pears peel.
    Finish: long, spices, chocolate, pepper, berries and oak.
    This Bruichladdich has a very good balance. It’s strong, complex and tasty.

  7. Calmar scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    A good wine mole, very juicy, rich, some sorting with bitterness and tartness in taste / finish, but overall it's very nice.
    • Nose
      Open, dry, first nose - smoke and red wine; noble wood, old furniture, leather goods, light notes of shoe cream and wax, a little smoke, ash, dusty books, lemon zest, mineral motifs.
    • Taste
      Saturated, airy, tart oak, dried medicinal herbs, bitter cortex, tablet bitterness, peppery wave.
    • Finish
      Spicy, warming, wine-wood, raisins, grapes, bitter young bark, uncoated tablets, grapefruit crust, mountain ash.

  9. malthead-sven scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    a delicious Laddie, which one blindly would probably appreciate older. The cask has hardly brought any typical wine notes.
    • Nose
      Orange juice with pulp, vanilla pods, coconut macaroons, sweet, Cini minis, shrubs on the bush, woodruff leaves, compote of pickled pears, soft yeast pastry, puff pastry, with water peppermint and moist moss
    • Taste
      heavy and still pleasant, tingling under (!) the tongue, raisins, milk cocoa, alcohol is barely disturbing perceptible
    • Finish
      very round, not particularly intense but rather elegant, slightly woody, earthy, warms up later quite a bit and thus gains in length

  10. theograph scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Wow! Dirty, salty and a great wine barrel! Unfortunately nice! Clear recommendation but unfortunately not necessarily cheap- PLV: 9/10
    • Nose
      A pronounced hint of salt at the beginning, wonderful meaty, very fruity - especially in the direction of darker pickled with red fruits, spices and herbs such as lavender and cumin, cumin, also a clear impression of cocoa, fermented grapes and deep red tart-sweet fruit - the wine barrel beats clearly!
    • Taste
      Old wood, furniture polish, greasy leather and again wonderful meaty, totally dirty, goes towards Kuhstall- and agriculture, again many verboregene spices, very clear impressions of cocoa and chocolate, very creamy on the palate!
    • Finish
      Medium to long! Spicy! Very nice in the variety of flavors, especially fleshy and dirty with strong wine aromas and really clear salt notes!
