    Beginning with orange gummy bears, going over to orange pepper ending with salty limoncello. I really liked this one! Full review (in German): https://keinehalbendrinks.de/2019/10/24/bruichladdich-im-original/

    The aroma is a bar of homemade butter, unripe white apples, olive oil and green grass. The taste is full-bodied, with a bright sourness of green apples with white pepper. The finish is medium-long, herbaceous, apple-honey.

    Oh, how he is, not only in words "Organic", very fresh, very non-standard, for a lover of mineral and delicate malts.

    RATING: 86pts - | 83 - 86 (B) → Good | - Not a “must”, but a nice-to-have.

    Beautiful nose, as I like Laddie: light-fruited, fresh, fragrant, playful and animating.
    In the mouth: round approach, then unfortunately a little rough and very light bitterness, medium-length finish.
    Not bad. Had they vowed for two more years, that would probably have become a real candidate for purchase ...

    • Nose
      Hints of burlap, butter and whole grain bread, with a touch of dry apple cider, as well as olive oil and wet rocks, followed galia melon. Freshly cut grass too, and a hint of soot.
    • Taste
      Nice creaminess. There's a nice initial fruitiness, with pink grapefruit at the forefront, but followed by banana and lemon. This is accompanied by warming spices, pepper and nutmeg mainly, but also fudge and toffee.
    • Finish
      The spices linger, as does a pronounced grassiness.

    A great and very varied laddie. I like it best from the distillery trinity (Islay Barley, Bere Barley, Organic) so far.

    Really chic, I'll keep an eye on organic whisky! I find the topic very exciting anyway.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Creamy mango, milk chocolate, dry vanilla, Jaffa cakes, some white pepper as a minimally spicy counterpart. Add a hint of dry grain and vanilla ice cream topped with lemon balm. Some sweet tobacco and leather also come to mind now. Summery, tart-tropical, delicious!
    • Taste
      87 87
      Nice fresh grain, dried lemon zest and lots of milk chocolate. The lemon balm shows itself here more than tart herbs. In general, the malt has slipped more into the tart, the creamy fruit notes and the vanilla ice cream play a submissive role here. A rough farm character with coastal flair flashes through here and there.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Seamless and lastingly tart. Grapefruit essential oils and wet wood while splitting comes to mind. I also have to think about bitter lemonade from time to time. Fits really well and contributes to a very varied mix of flavors.

    Malty, buttery, fruity, with an oily backbone. Oats, vanilla, apples, sandalwood, coconut oil, melon, earth. Water and time in the glass reveals more fruits. A very well made whisky.

    • Nose
      84 84
      Floral, like a cosmetic shop, fresh fruit (kiwi is most strongly suggested here), a bit malty.
    • Taste
      81 81
      Malt, fruit, honey, some heat.
    • Finish
      80 80
      About the same, no heat from the alcohol, though. Medium.

  11. Iron_Calli scored this whisky 84 points Expert Junior

    Nose top: Deliciously sweet, pleasant fresh woodiness, biscuit cookies. Granaries and sweet malt. Honey and a rather light fruit, a sweet, fully ripe pear. And although I am now talking about sweetness several times, it is always accompanied by a somewhat bitter wood note - which harmonizes very nicely.

    In the mouth it is then much more one-dimensional. Graininess, a hint of marzipan. A young woodiness is also quite dominant, with certain bitter notes and a bit of ginger sharpness in the finish. But the malt sweetness also reverberates pleasantly.

    Time is good for him. If you get involved with him in peace, he shows more and more beautiful sides.

    Ralfy review 894: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8srxulikUOQ (84/100).

    "Very astringent, deeply bitter and sour, in the same style as some Benromach's, early versions Benromach's, and mid-aged, 15yo old style Pulteney's. An unusual type of Scotch whisky."

      malt, a touch of rubber cement, overripe peaches, dirty hay, vanilla and char, smells like first fill bourbon. then to caramelized flambé bananas and peaches and a bit of kerosene. Then to something like kerosene and oregano or thyme and vanilla. With water maybe a bit more peach and some crushed grass. Some Camomile?

      Second tasting got most of the above again with some lemon and peach sorbet too. Japanese Peach gummy candies (you know the super fragrant ones) after water. Cantaloupe.
    • Taste
      84 84
      some grassiness, banana, vanilla. Gets sweeter and simpler with water.
    • Finish
      85 85
      green apples and lemon, a bit of bite, vanilla. Nice peach on the finish with water.

    Fresh, juicy, and lots of tropical fruit.

  16. MickMatrix scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Fruchtig Frisch in der Nase. Schöne süße.
    Im Mund und Abgang dann nicht genug Tiefe.
    Insgesamt daher durschnittlich.
    • Nose
      86 86
      In der ersten Nase floral und süß mit einer leichten Note von Ananas und unteifem Pfirsich. Die Süße ist sehr deutlich. Vanille kommt dazu und im Hintergrund eine kräuternote.
      Alkohol ist spürbar aber gut eingebunden für 8 Jahre Lagerung.

      Der Weisse Pfirsich wird zu einem gezuckerten Dosenpfirsich. Eine Malzige Note kommt hinzu.

      Absoluter Sommerwhisky in der Nase!
    • Taste
      84 84
      Malziger und vor allem würziger im Mund. Ordentlich kräftiger Antritt. Bietet nicht so viel wie in der Nase. Etwas Pfeffer und kaum noch süße. Allerdings mit einer öligen Textur. Für den Geschmack hätte er etwas länger im Fass bleiben können.
    • Finish
      83 83
      Wärmend und leicht würzig mit Vanille im Hintergrund. Die süße schwenkt zu einer leichten Trockenheit. Eher kurz im Abgang.

    Red apple, pear, orange, grapefruit, lime, vanilla, maritime, wet stone, malt, roasted aromas. Balanced, quite good body, nice texture, warming, delicate, creamy, caramel sweetness, good intensity. Would be curious how this laddie would fare in a blind tasting?
