    Bruichladdich 1998 - 2011, 12 years (Islay, Scotland)
    Original bottling for the Hanseatische Weinhandelsgesellschaft Bremen, 44.8% alc., From the Micro-Provenance series, matured in the Oloroso barrel for two and a half years, Cask 001.

    Nose: must, grapes and alcohol, vanilla and some "coast" (brackish, salt), plus the sweetness of gummy bears.
    ...
    Palate: Tart, slightly alcoholic, bitter grapefruit, slightly dry and peppery piquancy, vanilla. From the oak is still feeling nothing.

    Finish: Not very long, some spice and pepper remain in the reverberation.

    Conclusion: Almost 10 years in the Bourbon barrel, the rest in Oloroso. Do I like him? Difficult. He is not easy to drink. The sour notes on the palate are not serious, but disturb. If you would rather have left a few years in the barrel, because the alcohol is not very well involved despite drinking strength. Only the nose alone really convinces me.

    76/100 points (tasted 2013, price no idea, will be difficult to come to one) posted on my FB page: https://www.facebook.com/notesofwhisky
