Whisky Reviews for Bruichladdich 2006

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.19 points

  1. Drk Neknul scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    EYE / NOSE
    Rich, brownish tone. Sherrysüße leads, followed by a slightly mentholische stitch of the cask strength and then it is relatively quickly very spicy in the nose. A touch of maggie herb and green pepper. A bouillon cube seems to have lost its way into the barrel ... Roast sauce ... if the Valinch holds that on the palate, what the nose here hints, I would probably blind rather typed on a Mortlach than a Laddie.

    PALATE
    Less alcoholic than I had feared. Nevertheless, a few drops of water help him to take a bit of his exuberant power and polish up the elegance a bit. Honey sweet, sweet - not bitter orange marmalade, the nuts I've already noticed in the nose, and again sherry without end. And there are the expected meaty notes, which already cried MORTLACH in the nose. Not unpleasant, but not necessarily my favorite nuances among the many sherry game types. In any case, after twelve years in the Fresh Sherry Barrel, I can not really make much of Laddie's basic character. No wonder, it should not go unmentioned. Really nice is that our CV 41 has no miss notes. Sulfur nil. Thanks, Adam!

    FINISH / CONCLUSION
    Behind the back he heats up properly. The sweet sherry with the nut and dried fruit flavors of figs and apricots gives it a very long finish overall, but it gets pretty dry. You have to like it. An unabridged Sherry Laddie without Zipp and Zapp. Pleasant digestive after an opulent meal, especially for red wine drinkers who appreciate a dry, rather mineral finish.

  3. ARDBERG scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Quite sweet on the nose, meaty on the palate and then much dryier in the finish than I expected. Clean and crisp, no sulphur of any kind and quite smooth and well matured for its age and strength. A whisky at a high level that will find its fans with no problem at all, though it is not 100% my dram as the sherry style is not my favourite one. Yes, I am c(s)herry picking here;-)
