Whisky Reviews for Bruichladdich 10-year-old
3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.80 points
- Perfectly acceptable just slightly better than MOTR
Yeasty, lemon puff biscuits (just with less lemon), then it gets really grassy and reminds me of older Cragganmore
Now we have a problem because it reminds me of 70`s & 80`s White Horse blend which is not a good sign.
The palate is thankfully better but just a little thin on honey, butter a few lime notes, olive oil and wafer.
Not too long, with more sweet fruits coming through like yellow plums.
- Rich and fruity nose, with loads of banana foam and cola cube sweets, fresh apple peel, vanilla custard, and roasted coffee beans. A couple of drops of water released additional notes of sea salt. Nosed blind I would have put it much older than a 10yo, as some lovely 'old wood' notes from the cask also came forward after 10 minutes in the glass. Lovely stuff, with a very different profile to that I associate with recent releases from the distillery. Well-balanced on the palate too (albeit a touch thin), where warm chilli spice mingles with fruits (banana again, apples and cherries) and a faint waft of something smoky. Medium-length finish with peppery notes lingering.
