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
- Worth seeking out at auction.
- Better than I was expecting, really nice.
There is a lot of chocolate orange here and marmalade. Lots of fruit peels and candied fruit.
Plum, shoe polish and salted caramel
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.
Decent medium length and it gets really spicy at the finish
- tasted with Aby and JJ
sample available on www.whiskysample.nl
dried fruits, orange, pepper and grape fruits
citrus, honey, polish and saw dust
coals, iron, orange and a touch of salt - fishy
- 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.
