    Sweetsalt Smoke

    I was fortunate enough to experience the very first presentation of this new release of Liquid Art during a live-stream. It did not take long before it arrived on my doorstep. This 14 years old Bruichladdich was bottled at a cask strength of 51.7%. Sorry for the short intro, but I’m very eager to dive into this one!

    Nicely sweet and prickly on the nose with sugared (yes!) lemon peel and buttercups, a lovely salty edge and some white fruit with a hint of young pineapple. There is some smoke development, but surprisingly discrete.

    Clean and powerful on the palate, lightly oily, but again that wonderful interplay between sweet and salty. White fruit and citrus precede a lovely, now much more outspoken smokiness. Playful and simply very good.

    The finish is its forté. Simply delicious how it lingers on the palate. Sweetsalt (not a word, but you know what I mean) smoke, nice warm spiciness. I am sold!

    You can get one of these bottles for only 130 EUR. Recommended.
