Whisky Reviews for Bruichladdich 2004 HoMc

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.50 points

  1. Oogadal scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Again, just wondering if my bottle has the same whisky in it..? I doubted a bit as I find over € 120 a shitload of money for just a 14 yo whisky, heck, I find € 100 actually too much for a 14 yo, but House of McCallum, well, let's say, there might be some expectations there..? Port cask matured was the trigger to buy and I opened the bottle straight after delivery and I had it breath for some hours. Nosing this it is actually very hard to detect a hint of ex port cask. It's more like a refill ex sherry cask, and not a 1st refill but a second or 3rd at it's best. Aka; virtually no cask influence. Shame. Tasting this one actually only the alcohol pops up very dominating. Some floral Laddie typicals and, of course, some very young baby puke. The milky style. Sounds bad, but isn't. The finish is what you might expect after the dissapointing nose and taste; short and boring.
    This ex port cask could have worked, but it should be left in it's cask way longer to have a chance of getting in the 88 point range. But at this pirce level I expect 89-90 points and this will never reach that level.

    • Nose
      Strawberries, raspberries, typical Bruichladdich notes
    • Taste
      Fruity, red fruits, malty, cereals, cornflakes, alcohol well integrated
    • Finish
      Fruity, good, asks for more.
