  1. holborndrinker scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    A bobby dazzler - normally not a fan of red wine cash finishes, but this whisky can take it. Well worth buying a bottle.
    • Nose
      85 85
      Meat brined in iodine and then placed over a charcoal flame.
    • Taste
      88 88
      A decent mouthfeel, thick and unctuous with the spirit behaving well. then red wine notes which are held in balance by the alcohol, some dryness at the death.
    • Finish
      87 87
      A lingering finish - my tongue tingled, but left wanting more.

  2. MaroFF scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      89 89
      smoky, peat, undergrowth, bread crust, smokehouse, a bit of sulfur
    • Taste
      89 89
      again notes of sulfur, shark oil, fish oil, sweet and sour, a lot of coconut, vanilla
    • Finish
      88 88
      long, creamy, red berries, sugar, in the background a delicate smoky haze

    This has to be amongst the very few fascinating Bruichladdich Port Charlotte's Cask Exploration Series Whiskies. The other was PAC 01 2011, which I personally think was a notch better, but not by much. It's possibly a 0.2 % variation. I know it's nitpicking, but somebody has to win, isn't it?

    One thing to note here is don't just get this to your lips soon after you pour. After you pour into your Glencairn let it sit while you go about your chores. Revisit ever so often and nose it; don't just sip yet. After about 20 minutes or so, put it to your lips, and you'll be handsomely rewarded. Do it any sooner, and you'll wish you'd never picked this bottle.
