  1. checkpointuk scored this whisky 93 points Connoisseur

    Colour:
    Full gold
    Nose:
    Leather, rope, barley, vanilla, lemon, salt, blueberries, figs, plums, wood and earth. Very determinant takes the dry wood already in the nose the issue in the hand. Fruity blue and spicy-dull underlaid - these are the buzz words of the nose!
    Taste:
    Straightforward, clean, slightly sweetish-spicy and with impressive fruit. As in the nose, the wood here also rules with a salty spice. But the fruity components are not easily beaten; dark fruits of blueberries, blueberries, plums and figs are the honor. With honey, sweet chilli, caramelized brown sugar and a handful of herbs, this results in a fantastic taste!
    Finish:
    Long - woody and anything but boring. Sweet blue fruit notes with honey, caramel and some coffee run endlessly with a pleasant and very suitable spice.

    N- Amicably velvet at 55.5%. Nose melting OME of malt floor, cooked cereal mash, uncut red chili, bushy reeds and scents of sundried cotton. Maritime notes take over gradually with pink and black peppercorn, salted treacle and molasses and circulated back to cereal. Reflective old school sherry that almost flawless with light cigar, liquorice smokes, guava and pomerol.

    P- Pickled ginger, pickled onion, biting sour sweet dried fruits, waxed wood liquorice, dressed with playful berries and pomegranate. Traces of oxidation in the middle.

    F- Endless, salted and spiced smoked meats. Spiciness set in gracefully with pomegranate and mint on the return. Almost perfect.

    — at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.

    Bruichladdich 1968 / December - 1985 / November 16yo Intertrade 75cl, 55.5% vol. Intertrade - Rimini Clear glass This is finally the last memorable Bruichladdich in the exotic land of my wish I wish to go. After all, since the label of Intertrade is noticeable, I beg you one by one, and on the night of a meeting for a long time, Bruichladdich with promised sense of security will be appropriate. I would like to relax relaxedly with the pleasure of arrival. However? However! Where is ~! Approximately, this rotation Bruichladdich does not seem, nosing the shock that feels ironishness and rusted spoon! The so-called, easy-hitting wheat softness routes were felt in classic at Bruichladdich of this rotation. Unbelievable, as close as under 15yo Port Ellen Low body fat percentage "Shakit Peaty"! And also Caol Ila 15yo, OB, Bulloch Lade & Co. Yellow round The sharpness not to be lost to the label. But, although Body boasts the iron wall of steel, it is not thick and smart! Never a metal bat strike incident. Suddenly, I can go inside! The nuance of the old pear. And the fork which eats pear is also rusting. But is that okay? There is no feeling like any flesh. The tide and iron scraps became squalls, as if the pretty sharp glass of Airplane tears apart! Such unexpectedness, as it is not easy in Bruichladdich, is happy. It was a terrible drink full of betraying nuance of promised security. https://whisky2010.usukeba.com/u/whisky2010/1fyharsmde7s64
