    Note by Serge Valentin from whiskyfun.com:Bruichladdich 15 yo (43%, OB, Moon Import, 75cl, +/-1985) This baby bottled long before the ‘small blue label’ that used to be a little undemanding, to put it mildly. Colour: gold. Nose: it is to be wondered if they hadn’t added a little peated old Bruichladdich, as what I’m getting at first sniffs is rather metal polish and soot/ashes. Whiffs of brake fluid as well, then rather herbs and grasses, with some fern, and perhaps grapefruit skin. It’s only after a good five minutes that the expected melons do start to come out, and they would come with peaches, although the whole will remain pretty sooty and grassy. Perhaps fresh walnuts (sherry?) Mouth: it’s not huge, but once again it’s surprisingly dry and grassy. Still some soot, touches of bitter caramel, a little cardboard, grapefruits and bitter oranges… And those ashes plus some pepper. Quite austere, globally. Finish: medium, with an oiliness, zests, grass, and something both metallic and cardboardy in the aftertaste. A touch of lemon too. Comments: a dry old Bruichladdich, rather unusual. SGP:362 - 82 points.
