  2. vlad78 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    First time I try this whisky. A good cask and a good aging period gave a wonderful drink!
    • Nose
      Candied plum jam. Walnut jam and black tea.
    • Taste
      Taste sweet candy prunes in chocolate. A thick drink.
    • Finish
      Sweet long-lasting pleasant aftertaste.

  3. dram_on scored this whisky 79 points Expert Junior

    Sulfur bomb! Oxidization does help (still working on this one) so I imagine this one needing more time to appreciate ...

    Updated comment: originally scored a 76 but after oxidizing for 3 months, have upgraded score to a 79, not enough for a B-

  4. mmaclean did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    "This Bruichladdich 21yo is a very dark, intensely sweet and sherried

    affair, thanks to full-term maturation in Oloroso Sherry butts. Very

    big and fruity, with more than a hint of sulphur."
    TWE
