  1. Blo scored this whisky 94 points Expert Senior

    What whisky !!!
    • Nose
      Ultra fresh, full of tropical fruits, a perfectly integrated sherry, finesse, with a lot of power and scope! WAHOU!
    • Taste
      Extremely powerful, so absolutely no aggressiveness, alcohol is perfectly integrated, the 35 years spent in the jug surely helping ... The slightest sip invades you with flavors hardly describable ... A silky texture and so far the mouth is more dry that could have foreshadowed the nose ... Still WAHOU!
    • Finish
      Long, quite marked on the yellow melon.

    In fact, it's unbelievable that the malt was actually only 15 years in the barrel. A truly convincing malt that I did not promise too much.
    • Nose
      Sherry - deeper, darker and stronger sherry. Sweet and fruity, you can see the berries and grapes almost in the inner eye. A few "old school" notes mix as well as gentle oak in the background. The alcohol provides a strong nose, yet the malt is very elegant and unobtrusive therefore. With some time in the glass, a great aniseed note is added. Even if I do not like the typical aniseed spirits at all, this fits in somehow. Great nose, which invites you to discover.
    • Taste
      Strong again, not alcoholic. Rather, the malt spreads directly throughout the mouth, looks very voluminous. Blind I would have estimated the spontaneous probably 10 years older. The sherry is still present, but no longer as strong and sweet as in the nose. Instead, now primarily a colorful spice mixture, some smoke and oak. The whole then accompanied by a few light fruit notes. Instead of the sherry sweetheart now a bit bitter, also affects here much older and more mature!
    • Finish
      Long, strong and smoky. Does not sound like the typical Bruichladdich, which one knows today - does not come close. Differs significantly from Stillman's bottling from the same vintage. No bitterness, minimal dryness - perfect! The crowning glory here again anise.

    A simply-designed, elegantly aesthetic white ceramic decanter of cask strength Bruichladdich 1965, bottled in 1981 to celebrate the Royal Wedding of Prince Charles & Lady Di. TWE
