    WF:

    Bruichladdich 22 yo 1969 'The Stillman's Reserve' (43%, OB, +/-1991) Colour: gold. Nose: it’s amazing how much this is almost like a ‘blend’ of Sauternes with sweet chenin from Loire. And yet there isn’t any inside, I suppose… So ripe plums, acacia honey, apricots, beeswax, touches of lilies, custard… Also baklavas, orange blossom honey, rose petals… The whole is very aromatic and, I must say, very lovely. Also a newly opened pack of shortbread. Mouth: less Sauternes-y, obviously, but plums and apricots are well there, as well as honey and shortbread. This is almost liquid pastry, even when you add sweet notes of malt and brioche (obviously). Excellent body at 43%, this is perfect distillate, perfectly aged. Smooth and firm at the same time. Finish: long, rather more on candy sugar and even more honey. Very nice herbs and spices in the aftertaste (mulled white wine). Comments: great whisky. Like elsewhere, I believe the distillery had harder times during the 1980s and 1990s, but I think they’re back to their pre-1975 glory since quite some years as far as their distillate is concerned. SGP:541 - 89 points.
