Whisky Reviews for Bruichladdich 1964 GM

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 92.47 points

  1. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 93 points Connoisseur

    In the meantime I am often afraid that one expects high expectations with such a vintage and distillery directly, but here they were more than fulfilled and exceeded.
    • Nose
      The nose is always ingenious, first only full, beautiful honey, then marzipan, toffee, after a while comes papaya, mango, passion fruit, mushy banana, cardamom, tonka beans, kumin
    • Taste
      Dream, Haribo Tropico everywhere, banana, sweet Laddie Oldschool malt, candied peaches, apricot, marzipan and toffee, papaya, honey
    • Finish
      Eternal on the palate, green and white tea, fennel, papaya, tropical honey

    Tasting notes by Whiskynotes.be (April 5, 2014):

    Nose: a very fruity nose, albeit with an Islay twist. Fairly tropical: mango, guava, banana and apricot. Nice honey notes, as well as a silky touch of beeswax. Leathery notes. Vanilla. A very subtle maritime edge, as well as light peat smoke.Mouth: so beautiful. Round and fruity, with enough punch. Tropical fruits again (more mandarins now, but also pineapple and strawberry), lots of fruit jams. Honeyed, almost liqueur-like at times. Cake. Again some smoke and sandalwood in the background. Hints of ginger and pepper to spice it up. Very soft peat, leading to a medium long finish that’s oily and still full of sweet fruitiness. A minty edge in the very end.A wonderful whisky. It’s rare to find this combination of succulent, exotic fruits, subtle peat and all these tiny notes which make this into a complex, stunning dram. We all know the excellent late 1960’s Bowmore – this is playing in the same league.Score: 93/100

    Especially the nose of this Bruichladdich is awesome (mid 90's). Thanks Patrick!
    • Nose
      Wow what a fruity nose! Lots of ripe mango, peaches and apricots. But also banana's and passion fruit. Vanilla and milk chocolate. Sweet barley. It's all very complex
    • Taste
      Juicy and sweet. Tropical fruit and oranges. Polished oak and some beeswax. A little gingery later on.
    • Finish
      Unfortunately quite short. Some bitter-sweetness oakiness.
