  1. wekke did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    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.

  3. QuarterCentury scored this whisky 94 points Connoisseur

    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.
