    Nose: I could make mad passionate nose to this all night. This is all fruit like my beloved sherry casks but somehow from a bourbon cask. Light golden raisin, apricot, canned in syrup lychee, dates, nougat. Orange cream soda. Later I found classic bourbon notes: vanilla, creme brule.

    Palate: gentle and balanced, grapefruit zest, cedar

    Finish: super refined and nuanced. long and subtle.

      takes some time:
      aromatic and inviting with ripe tropical fruits, wood notes, hints of vanilla and coconut. Makes a heavy and concentrated impression, has depth.
    • Taste
      90 90
      warm and aromatic, spicy-sweet-fruity-tart, a hint of perfume, fine wood notes, a touch of barrel and coffee, spices. Delicately tart in the finish.
    • Finish

      initially tenderly tart with barrel / oak notes, then slightly spicy and fruity, sweet-tart, soft and long with delicate wood notes. Finally, slightly sweet and fruity again, delicate wood aromas here too ...

      A good, successful, not an old, but a finely matured Bruichladdich.

    Vanilla, toffee, oak, spices. It delivers in its purpose of being a 32yr old bourbon cask exceptionally Finish is my favorite part. Wish the abv was a bit higher, but it still costs the mouth amazingly!

      Fragrant, toffee, sweet malt, light oak, vanilla, plum, ju jubes
    • Taste
      90 90
      Creamy, subtle entry, vanilla custard, oak spice, white pepper,
    • Finish
      92 92
      The time in barrels keep this finish going, oak, vanilla, and baking spices seem to last forever

  7. larswehmeier scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    In direct comparison with the 1988/30, this one is much more spicy and emphasizes oak. He lacks something fresh and light.
    Nevertheless, it is without question a very successful and impressive maturation, which shows what is possible with ex-bourbon barrels.
