  1. glen efze scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    The classic 10 year old, an iconic Islay whisky from a legendary distillery that continually brings expensive special bottlings onto the market. This one comes with no frills, no fancy finish, but probably just bourbon, with a decent age statement, no coloring, no chill filtering and a beautiful straw-gold color. What good is standard filling?

    • Nose
      On the nose it is unmistakably Islay. A nice strong, maritime smoke. With the second sniff you can also see the Bruichladdich distillery, the typical “cowshed”, which can also be interpreted as a maritime note with algae aromas. There is also sweetness, cough syrup, some menthol and mint. And then there is a rich vanilla note on top. There are also ripe fruits, apples and pears, which remain in the background.
    • Taste
      50%vol. ensure a full start. But the alcohol doesn't burn, it's carried by an oily sweetness. The whisky is thick like syrup, the smoke is present and typical, Islay peat and warm cowshed - that's Bruichladdich. It's not overly complex, just powerfully smoky with a subtle sweetness and a dry finish. The whisky is more mineral than fruity and has a clear vanilla note in the taste.
    • Finish
      The whisky starts sweet on the tongue and ends with dry barrel aromas and slight bitterness. The peat smoke with kelp remains in the cheek pockets and on the palate.

      Not too complex, not fancy: This is an honest, strongly smoky Islay whisky and one of the best standard whiskys from the island. It is quite distinctive, comes from a classic bourbon cask and is a worthy representative of the smoky Islay malts.
