  1. Gloin scored this whisky 62 points Expert Senior

    I do not like the smell, the acid and putrid is no longer a pleasure for me and it does not smell like whisky. The taste fits seamlessly with the smell. The finish is the best and most likely to show whisky-typical notes. The foul impression is far too dominant and thus the whisky has failed for me. The only real positive is the not noticeable alcohol at about 50%. blank
    • Nose
      It starts with slightly rotten fruit, light sulfur notes behind, apple vinegar, all not very pleasant, yeast dough
    • Taste
      The impression of the nose continues in the mouth. The onset is mild and the body creamy, but immediately I have the feeling of chewing around on a honeyed eraser, sulfur, behind it is indeed a pleasant sweetness, but the superficial impression leaves me with no real pleasure
    • Finish
      Fortunately, the foul sulfur effect disappears in the finish, it remains light oak and caramel, medium length

  4. vredensever scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    Aroma sharp, spicy: spices (vanilla, cloves, cinnamon, pepper), corn, malt, dough with sour, vegetable oil, summer fruits, citrus, floral-herbal theme. The taste is sharp: hot pepper, vanilla, malt, bread, citrus, butter, fruit (apple rind, apricots, little citrus), sheer bitterness. Aftertaste : bitterness at the beginning; then bread and cereal notes, cereal, spices (vanilla), astringent fruits and wood, a hint of minerality. Conclusion . Simple, young, bitchy, harsh, but very cute Bruichladdich. Light and summer whisky with an attractive scent. Score 82 (n22t20f20b20).

    Strong, sharp, burning, tickling and tingling on the tongue. Sweet and dry with a nice woody taste it stays in my memory.
