    Gate number 17 of my Tastillery advent calendar. Strong and full. Not necessarily something for beginners. Not particularly multifaceted. I expected more personally. A dilution to 46% might help.
    • Nose
      82 82
      sweet fruitiness, lots of herbs, a little malt, honey, if you have a deep nose comes the alcohol, some fresh grass, a hint of caramel, a little salt
    • Taste
      79 79
      spicy (salt and pepper), maritime notes, slightly sweet, some malt, a touch of fruity, some honey, some wheat, oak, a bit oily
    • Finish
      75 75
      medium-long due to the alcohol content, a lot of oak, spicy (salt and pepper), maritime notes, wood, a little nutty, a little chili, a little malt, hardly fruity, a little sweet, smoke

    young and winter, IMHO in the summer it is difficult to enjoy it ...

    Very pleasant to drink. Round, creamy and soft with some sweetness in the aftertaste. Not overly complex so really nice to drink for not so experience whisky drinkers.

  8. holborndrinker scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    A very pleasant dram - well worth having a try.
    • Nose
      Very gentle on the nose - the alcohol is overpowering.
    • Taste
      Some notes of salt and iodine.
    • Finish
      Long and smooth.

    Bruichladdich lemonade

    3 cl The Classic Laddie
    2 cl cointreau
    1.5 cl lemon
    1.5 cl lime

    stir with the Stirer in the Bruichladdich tumbler, add 3 ice cubes and then fill up with 7Up. A real recommendation for the barbecue season and the combination underscores the notes of the Bruichladdich immensely.
