Whisky Reviews for Bruichladdich 2004

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.54 points

  1. Drk Neknul scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Eye / nose
    Bright gold. Butter biscuits, Christmas cookies, which did not save on vanilla sugar and good butter. A lot of sweetness and, especially for Islayverhältnisse, pleasantly light Brennereicharakter are unmistakable. The 58.6% ABV have an excellent binding, no trace sprittig in the nose. Light fruit and spices in the background, but it clearly leads the buttery vanilla impressions. Very nice!

    palate
    Creamy on the tongue, very pleasant mouthfeel, as I had hoped, typical of laddiet, after the impressions of the nose. The alcohol warms, but does not sting. A light touch of milk coffee. The alcoholic warmth and vanilla-sweet flavors of the Bourbon Cauliflower let images of freshly cooked vanilla pudding pass in my mind's eye. Can you almost chew the malt. A fine spice emphasizes the aforementioned taste sensations. The alcohol is present but not overly dominant. That's the way it should be, because it's a powerful single malt, not a liqueur. Water addition is here, unlike the case with the previous barrel, rather discouraged. This makes the malt flatter, but does not really add to the profile and flavors.

    Finish / Conclusion
    In the medium-length finish, the fruity associations slowly and slowly become more and more conscious. Since the sweetness and pastry notes are retained as a flavor base, I make note of kiwi jam and gooseberry meringue pie, as my grandmother occasionally baked it in the old days. Not an excess of intricate complexity but rather a very successful, adult-looking Bourbon storage that convinces above all pure. Nothing to complain about, fits that.

      Finish is rather short and dryiing out the mouth.
