    This Bruichladdich perfectly paired the sweet raisins and fruits of the Yquem wine cask with the distillery’s funky creamy lactic spirit. This had a wonderful mouthfeel, an incredible dryness, and a finish that lasted a wonderfully long time. I do not usually enjoy really mouth-drying or astringent drams, but this was wonderful and the dryness perfectly complimented the sweetness and permitted a creamy funk to come through as the syrupy fruits faded off. This dram was remarkable, it was interesting, unique, and good— three things that do not always match up.

    • Nose
      Funky, lactic, and sweet. Pears and gorgonzola, chopped nuts, and honey-drenched figs. Floral and creamy notes of fresh cheese, whey, and a slightly funky dairy shed. Sandalwood, slightly resinous, earthy clay, and meaty notes develop over time.
    • Taste
      Thick and sweet with syrupy honey, figs, raisins, and fruit coating the palate. Creamy-buttery notes of ice cream topped with honey and a date sauce. Slight motor oil on the end along with funky meaty notes of Italian sausage and a remarkable dryness.
    • Finish
      Lingering dry sweet honey

      Honey glazed roast ham, sultanas.
    • Taste
      88 88
      A very unctuous mouthfeel, smooth blooming into a rich warmth - some spice, but overall golden butter notes.
    • Finish
      88 88
      The finish keeps going, blossoming out.
