Whisky Reviews for Bruichladdich Enlightenment
7 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.00 points
- The price is ridiculous. It's because they only produced 500 bottles. If they are going to charge that much, at least make it an older vintage.
- Very nice Bruichladdich from Bourbon barrels. Strong, fruity and sweet, yet with recognizable maturity. It's fun and basically a wonderful drinking whisky. Unfortunately, the price is absolutely covered and therefore this bottling is more interesting for collectors.
Needs some minutes in the glass, then reveals a wonderfully fruity Bruichladdich. Bright fruits, green grapes and green apples. Light vanilla, but not as strong as I would have expected.
Sweet, sweeter - Enlightenment. This is where the bourbon barrels come into their own. Golden honey and vanilla full, the malt becomes sweeter and creamier with every second on the tongue. At the same time, the Enlightenment is pleasantly strong thanks to the 53.7% Vol. The fruits are somewhat in the background, but after some time, some oak and a touch of salt.
Long and slightly spicy finish, the sweet honey sticks to the palate for a long time, resulting in a sweet and spicy finish. No trace of bitter notes.

- an there is a nice wooden box and some lecture
- According to Caterina at Old Whisky in Italy, only 500 bottles exist (see link below). Still, for the money, it should be accompanied by a gold bar.
- ok, you can make a beautiful label or a smooth bottle, but none of that. Just ask 300+ euro. The whisky must be very very good
are you sure about the 500 bottles? The label doesn't say that.
- Why is this whisky so expensive??? It's only 18 yo.
