    I’m not rating this Bruichladdich because it’s probably not my cup of tea. This weird combination of wine and horse stable’ish flavors and aromas don’t really do it for me. This whisky delivers a full on, a tad sourish, wine infused Laddy. Sour grapes and red berries, muddy, stable, hay pretty much take the lead in NT&F.

    Wow this is different! A very outspoken nose with a clear wine influence, a very balanced taste and an interesting finish make this whisky unique. Not something to drink multiple glasses on a single night, but something to take your time with.
    • Nose
      Typical muddy, earthy Bruichladdich nose. Clear wine marks allover the place. But not to much. Forrest fruits and a candied sweetness. Mushrooms after adding water indeed as Defeatless said. There still is a malted barley influence present which gives it quite a young but still very pleasant whole. It must have been quite a gamble to pick a specific cask like this I guess, but it worked out great!
    • Taste
      Balanced sweet and sour arrival. Warm fruit punch, grapes and sweet barley note. Again very outspoken but balanced and sophisticated at the same time.
    • Finish
      A long fruity, white wine-like finish. Initially I definitely get some peat both give a nice twist to this whisky. Sweet and savoury. Gentle and friendly. With water a long silky mouthfeel remains for quite a while. Pleasant stuff!
      Remarkable drinkable at 60.1%

    A well made wine-Bruichladdich!

      A intense nose. Very fully infused with white wine. Underneath there is a classic but a little dirty bruichladdich style of whisky. A little note which reminds me of a horsestable, which I tend to like. With water some mushroom notes show up

      Quite full on! Wine infused whisky it seems to be. But there is a very good balance here. With water is tames down considerably. It get's more in range with the Bruichladdich style, but still quite a good layer of wine here.
    • Finish

      Medium length. There is a good portion of white wine and wood influence. A little sour though.

    van Zuylen shop:

    "Years ago, five friends bought a barrel at Bruichladdich. The goal was to enjoy it together, unfortunately this was not achieved due to the death of one of them. The whisky was therefore bottled under the name" Ronald Janssen Commemorative Bottling ". distillation, the spirit was put on a rivesaltes hogshead (no. 2567) in September 2008. Rivesaltes is a strengthened muscat wine from the south of France, and the fruity freshness of the spirit is beautifully enhanced by the wine barrel. from 60.1% bottled.The whisky is not cold filtered and has its natural color.

    Color: dark gold.

    Nose: wonderfully greasy, with aromas of white fruit, beeswax and salty minerals.

    Taste: powerful continuation of the nose with perfectly integrated alcohol. Wonderful to taste how the wine barrel supports and reinforces the character of the spirit. In the long aftertaste, he first has solid notes of drying oak, but for a while in the glass or a drop of water will work wonders. "
