Whisky Reviews for Bruichladdich 1970
4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 91.85 points
- A 1970 vintage Bruichladdich released in 2006 to commemorate the 125th
anniversary of the distillery. Aged for 35 years in American oak and
then finished for a short time in Pinot Gris casks from the legendary
Domaine Zind Humbrecht.
- This Whisky was sold for 630 € at Whiskyauction in June 2015
- Bottled in 2006 to celebrate Bruichladdich’s 125th anniversary, this expression is 35-years-old, and contains spirit distilled in 1970. "The best Bruichladdich ever",
according to the distillery’s Lynn McEwan. Matured in Alsace Pinot Grigot casks,
considered to be some of the finest in the world, only 2,502 bottles have been
released worldwide. The nose is fruity, with peaches to the fore, and
Bruichladdich’s characteristic fresh, zestiness is never far from the surface.
Slightly smokier, darker notes develop with time. Stewed fruit, barley and
ginger dominate the palate, which dries steadily with distinctly winey and
spicey tones. A truly exceptional bottling created by Master Distiller Jim McEwan, presented in a luxury dark wooden box.
