Whisky Reviews for Bruichladdich Links IX
8 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 83.91 points
- Nose. Apple. Lime honey. Duchess pear. Syrup. Taste of pear, pear liqueur.
- Similar in style to the previous lynxes (VII and VIII), slightly more victorious in the components due to lack of wine finish, but, perhaps, more interesting VIII.
Raw, cool, flower-citrus, malt, mineral notes, wet rubble, stone dust, sour green apples, fresh raw boards.
Spicy oak, sweetish, creamy notes, condensed milk, toffee, shortbread, red currant, cowberry, kumquat, marinated ginger.
Spicy, sweet and sour, green apple, light ginger, cinnamon, cardamom, tangerines, warm, warming.
- The aroma is bright, spicy: spices (vanilla), sweet pastries, fruit marmalade (citrus), sweet apples, honey, wax, wood. Marine notes, minerality (stones, dust). The taste is sweet, spicy: hot pepper, vanilla, bread, citrus, honey theme, oak, sea notes. Aftertaste of medium duration with the influence of the sea, spices, honey, wax and citrus. In development, bitterness. Conclusion . Well balanced, sweet and pretty peppy Bruichladdich. Rating 87 (n22t22f21b22).
Peppery, sweet cereals, barley. Winter spice,
Rounded, black pepper, freshly cut fruit. Dried peels, passion fruit
Long, balanced, warming and fruity
- A good example this one. Not grand maybe, I won't call it a masterpiece in any event. Still it is amiable enough, good, decidedly good.
Brandy-like fumes, pharmaceutical syrup, caramel, custard, barley malt, plum compote, confiture, cocoa, touch of cinnamon, marshmallow.
Unexpectedly sour and salty in contrast to the sweet nose. Briny sea water, cabbage marinade, laminaria, raw oysters, mussels, squashed lemon juice.
Medium to long. Orange, grapefruit, salt, pepper, bitter chocolate, chicory.
- What I read, this one is matured only in Bourbon Casks. From the taste I would have guessed for some wine cask influence, because of some notes of sulfur and cooked fruits. Interesting one, but not really my taste.
- "The ninth addition to Bruichladdich`s long-running `Links` series
depicts a hole from the famous Birkdale golf course."
Malted barley. Spicy, with pepper notes. Damp cardboard. Oranges?
Holiday spices. Papaya. Fruit salad. Oatmeal.
Fruity and rather long. Warm fireside.
