  1. Archer scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    After 6 1/2 years again in the glass. At that time I had given him 81 points, I attested that his youthful grades were too clear. Today I like him a little better, the youthfulness doesn't bother me in the slightest, only the finish is pretty tight.

    > Tasting> Bruichladdich islay barley 2004 50% Nose: without dilution and looking good we can find flavors of lychee. The dilution does not serve him (with 1 gtt the fruity aromas disappear) remain dry malty and peat notes unpleasant. Alcohol is ubiquitous despite dilution Palate: alcoholic, assetic, malty, tasteless. No fruity aroma with or without dilution. Dilution brings nothing .. Final: bitterness not strong enough to be unpleasant but the lack of aromas makes it become ubiquitous and it becomes the final ... Always alcohol burning this time .. Comment: disappointing a very bad bruichladdich. Alcoholic. Tasteless, local barley that makes you want to taste it but does not keep its promises Hall of flops
    To avoid urgently

  7. Archer scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    A young savage.
    • Nose
      Fresh, fruity nose. Melon and peach stand out. Fresh hay next to it.
    • Taste
      Strong onset with initially strong alcohol note, which quickly abates. He remains quite impetuous. Mild pepper meets tropical fruit. Maybe a touch of sherry?
    • Finish
      Rather short and dry quickly. Remain dried herbs.

  9. Bishlouk scored this whisky 77 points Connoisseur

    Tasted "blind"

    On the nose, peat that I do not like + cereals (malt).
    In the mouth, is it taste? Is it pure alcohol?
    No taste that stands out, too alcoholic.

  10. Malt Hans scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Malty, fruity and spicy aroma, ripe orange,

    cardamom, banana, toffee, vanilla, coconut, green tea and dry hay.

    Marzipan sweet taste, chili, ginger, walnuts, junpier berries, orange

    marmalade and green tea. Long, herbal, spicy and malty end.

  11. Feusi did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    The first of a potential series of whiskies from Bruichladdich with terroir very much at the forefront. This whisky is made from barley grown on Islay a mile from the distiller at Kentraw farm, malted without peat and then distilled and matured on Islay.
