Whisky Reviews for Bruichladdich 1986

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.90 points

  1. feeroff scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Wonderful Oloroso in an intense barrel, but absolutely not overpowering sherry. Barrel fortress prolongs wonderful taste:
    23 + 22 + 22 + 22 = 89 ~ Everything is very harmonious, roll a bit, as it is very bright

  2. hs305 scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    [November, 2001]  I had this dram during a Jim McEwan tasting while cruising the river Rhine aboard MS Godesia. 

    In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored this 90.  My notes state a creamy and sweet sherry profile with a medium finish.  It is rather smooth given its abv.

  3. Allandale scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    A oily and beeswax body.
    • Nose
      Grassy,. Dunes. Salty.
    • Taste
      More maltiness and especially  fruitiness.
    • Finish
      Still hot and dry, but softened by the oiliness of the spirit.
