Whisky Reviews for Bruichladdich 1966 DL
5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.70 points
- Starts very strong with a great nose, full volume and these old flavors, unfortunately it tastes strong in the taste and on the finish. The finish is unusual Alcoholic
- This Whisky was sold for 282 € at Whiskyauction in Apr.2016and for 325 € in June 2015
- It's not that bad, but I would have expect more of such an old Bruichladdich. Straight forward whisky without real depth.
Starts fresh and fruity. Granny smith apples and some pear. Grassy notes. Later on some varnish and other cleaning stuff.
Light and clean. Quite winey. White grapes and plain oak tannines. Also some vanilla and maltiness. A little peppery as well. Tastes much younger as 35 years old.
Medium long. Dryness. Becomes slightly bitter at the end.
- Starts on the nose wonderfully fruity (old Bowmore like), with time getting fresher (68 Inchgower like), slightly spicy.
On the palate : light, fresh tingling with slightly spicy fruit, also fresh eucalyptus notes here.
That's it - a little short.
Floral, hint of fireworks, slightly sweet.
