  1. malthead-1984 scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    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

  3. MaltMartin scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    It's not that bad, but I would have expect more of such an old Bruichladdich. Straight forward whisky without real depth.
    • Nose
      Starts fresh and fruity. Granny smith apples and some pear. Grassy notes. Later on some varnish and other cleaning stuff.
    • Taste
      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.
    • Finish
      Medium long. Dryness. Becomes slightly bitter at the end.

  4. Medea scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    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.
