    Tonight its a mid 1960's Bruichladdich face off, lowest abv first   


    https://www.whiskybase.com/whiskies/whisky/30927/bruichladdich-centenary this is a 15 year bottled in 1981  https://www.whiskybase.com/whiskies/whisky/14053/bruichladdich-1966  https://www.whiskybase.com/whiskies/whisky/16892/bruichladdich-1965    Result   

    1 -  Penny Black   

    2 - Reserva Veroneli   

    3 - 1965 Samaroli but splitting hairs with the Reserva Veroneli   

    4 - Centenary   

    The 1968 Penny Black MI wins because it had a little more of everything and at only 46% had the most to offer on the palate. 

    There is really nothing between the  Reserva Veronelli 1966 and the 10 year Samaroli 1965 only that the Veronelli you could tell the extra years had added a little extra to the profile but the Samaroli 10 year is a belter for one so young.  Although the centenary was last again hardly anything in it and all 4 of these Laddie are great bottlings and this was a really enjoyable H2H

    Better than I was expecting, really nice.
    • Nose
      There is a lot of chocolate orange here and marmalade. Lots of fruit peels and candied fruit.

      Plum, shoe polish and salted caramel
    • Taste
      This is literally rougher than the Penny Black, on orange, wafer and ripe peach with the sherry mixing nicely with the fruit. Some peat creeps in and adds to the profile.
    • Finish
      Decent medium length and it gets really spicy at the finish

  6. Erik Elixir scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    tasted with Aby and JJ

    sample available on www.whiskysample.nl
    • Nose
      dried fruits, orange, pepper and grape fruits
    • Taste
      citrus, honey, polish and saw dust
    • Finish
      coals, iron, orange and a touch of salt - fishy

  7. aby scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    I have to think enormously of smoothly polished rosewood, well.
    In addition to a bourbon (G t S, but less violently), but also to single grain from Nikka. Only try one more time, no punishment because it is very tasty. 91p.
