    Bruichladdich 15 yo 2005/2020 (60.6%, Archives ‘Birds of the Orient’, cask #806, barrel, 230 bottles)
    Historians of the distant future will probably write some obscure thesis on the curious effects of that late 20th century phenomena when whisky lovers and bird watchers started breeding… Colour: pale gold. Nose: wooft! An un-peated Brora 1972! Seriously, all on pure farmyard, bailed hay, silage, paraffin, clay, ointments, mineral oils and camphor. Pretty spectacular in my view. With water: yup, chalk dusters, more paraffin, lamp oil, plush cereals, malt extract, barley sugar, stables and this increasingly fresh and elegant coastal note. Mouth: one of these styles that feels as though there is some peat lurking in the depths that’s extremely hard to pin down. Instead it sort of emerges as ink, carbon paper, olive oil, brake fluid, chalk, aspirin, struck flints and tar. It’s also superbly fat and textural. Brilliant distillate! With water: massively textural, fat, oily, buttery malted barley sweetness. Also these peppery notes and a more vivid coastal quality. Some greenery such as grass, parsley and crushed gorse bush too. Just superb! Finish: long, full of white pepper, chalky medicines, grassy olive oil, dry cereals, tarragon and a few glimmers of tart green acidity. Comments: Quite simply, brilliant distillate. It’s a big departure from the earlier eras, but it seems they were really doing something right at Bruichladdich in these post-2001 vintages.
    SGP: 572 - 90 points.
