    A good honest / 'integrity bottling' Malt Whisky from a cask which I believe was family owned and bottled to commemorate the passing of Carol-Ann. I was told it was bottled just shy of 12 years because its 57% was Carol Ann's age.
    It's an example of Bruichladdich' s lighter non-peated style - and compared to most the official bottlings I've had, - has that little bit extra. I've thoroughly enjoyed this Malt since opening it on Islay in June 2019. Nose: you have to work a little, I find, - to bring out and appreciate its subtle complexity. Fruity - on mirabelle plums perhaps? ; some quite assertive damp wood and savoury bitter notes ; balanced with spun sugar, toasted oak, secondary vanillas, light fruit cake, and quite spirity. Taste: spirit heat, sweet/ but more on savoury - dry/ bitter. Finish; simple - not particularly long, but just a lovely long subtle 'whisky' flavour.

    Leave out the peat, take out the heavy cask influences, and finishes, leave out the caramel and the chill filtration, and allow subtle cask influence over time.....
    God Bless and thank you.
