  1. malthead-1984 scored this whisky 93 points Expert Senior

    For me an absolute dream malt. He brings something of everything has beautiful flavors and still a great alcohol included. for me a must have 93 pts. the 5.1 is still a touch better
    • Nose
      beautiful round full nose, dates dark fruit and sweet figs dominate, light malty notes that are accompanied with honey and herbs, the alcohol is perfectly integrated. with time, the fruits are lighter in the direction of cherry, wonderfully complex and changeable, red apples and even citrus notes
    • Taste
      slightly oily and full in the body it runs on the tongue. full flavors and a perfectly integrated alcohol. In addition to the forest fruit mug and the slightly astringent dates, he feels like a forest honey.
    • Finish
      the departure is just as full and intense. it is getting drier and brings full barrel wort. he stays in the mouth with many herbs

  2. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    A super drinkable dram! Enthusiasm 4/5 Whisky n ° 1603
    • Nose
      Sherry? Porto? Ready to play guessing? It looks like a Dalmore initially richer (I'll let you guess if it's a compliment or not).
      Then the dried fruits, the honey. It is very aromatic! Blackberry jam.
    • Taste
      Well rich, juicy, greedy, but never too soft. Cooked fruits. Balanced, although "cask-sided", obviously. Some spices.
    • Finish
      Very greedy, dominated by red fruits.

    Bruichladdich Black Art 1990 Edition 04.1, 23 years, 49.2% ABV https://www.whiskybase.com/.../43.../bruichladdich-black-art-041 First impression / color / viscosity: My second tasting with this henna single malt. I can still remember my first dram about half a year ago, which is why the expectations are high. This time too oily in the glass, although not nearly as much as 03.1 Aroma / Nose feeling: Vanilla, honey, figs, nuts and something slightly grassy rise in the nose. As with the previous two whiskys, no alcohol stands out here. Just great to smell it! Taste / mouthfeel: Glorious. Liquid whole milk chocolate on a bed of dark fruits and grapes followed by some more prominent spices (eg pepper). Oh, is the sweet, although the almost 50% but also quite pleasant tickle on the tongue. Yes, they are already alike, the malts tasted so far, but each one is unique in its own way (... and good). Finish / aftertaste / Length: A long finish and the sweet Nachschmecken make me happy. A little bit of wood and tannins point to some of the barrels used and make the scotch even more interesting. Comment: Although I'm not a big Bruichladdich fan, I'm a Black Art fan anyway. Happy, who has the bottles at home can appreciate! Of course, I have to say that I can easily get lost if someone does not like this single malts. They are already something special. Complacent, but own ... Points: 94/100

    Herbs dance on the tongue - cool, warm, bitter, sweet, astringent, peppery like chili, but also like essential oils of thyme, rosemary, sage .... with freshly beaten wood from which you can still shoot the juices
    • Nose
      wonderfully sweet and exotic fruity, buttery floral, infinitely creamy oak with a delicate, sweet, old-looking lemon and green tea with jasmine flowers. In addition, fruity sweet sour orange, pineapple (white gummy bears), mango, tree juice, pepper and mint, in the background a fine spicy tobacco note
    • Taste
      Cardboard box, very complex oak in different flavors (pruning, sawdust, firewood, oak cabinet wall, new roof truss ....) freshly sawn succulent wood, vegetable peppery, the mouth is dry - astringent extreme :) as if you were chewing on a green olive wood branch - in addition a sweetness as from forest honey and figs with sage leaves ethereally peppery with a vegetable bitterness and herbaceous resinous spiciness, some lemon and citrus oil, pine needles, a little acid, leather
    • Finish
      Herbs dance on the tongue - cool, warm, bitter, sweet, astringent, peppery like chili, but also like essential oils of thyme, rosemary, sage .... with freshly beaten wood from which you can still shoot the juices

  5. Vince' scored this whisky 88 points Expert Junior

    Nose: Spicy, sweet and a sour vinous and slightly charred wood note can be heard. I also hear a slightly earthy or musty, musty note of wet wood. After some time, an association with acidic wine gums with old oak, as well as sour cherry, roasted aromas and lime peels and some jasmine is also identified. A touch of vanilla as well as an old leather note and burnt caramel come to my mind as well. Taste: Short-term spicy-sweet develops very quickly a dominant tingling acid in the entire oral cavity and lingers there quite long-lasting and strong. Behind it, I find something that makes me think of toasted flavors, plums, oranges with orange peel, some caramel, chocolate and old leather. But I can not identify much more, the tingling acid is always the dominant part of the drop in the beginning and makes it slightly unbalanced. The finish is a little shorter than I like and lingers with some chocolate, vanilla and slightly tart but vegetal oak flavors medium on the tongue. Something like coffee / espresso I do not mean to find, the tart aromas are more direction green tea and musty, old spirit saturated with spirit ( not in the negative sense ). Conclusion: interesting. I really like the drop in the nose, but it gives me something unbalanced on the palate that is too tingly over a tart note. Still not a bad drop, but not a "must have" for me.

    The Black Art 04.1 was my first Black Art which I had in the glass. This Bruichladdich is and was something special! The fruity nose and the wonderful taste harmonize very well with the intense finish. An unexpected variety of flavors and tastes have made this multi-layered drop into a tasting experience.
    • Nose
      The black art shimmers in the nosing glass in intense and amber colors. Creamy and oily, the drops spread on the glass wall and run back slowly and cumbersome in the glass. A fine sherry aroma rises from the glass. Dark fruits, dates and light sweetness rise in my nose. A subtle hint of smoke and peat mixes with chocolate, vanilla and a light spiciness. The alcohol is finely integrated and harmonizes well with the nose.
    • Taste
      At the first sip, a bitter and intense espresso taste fills my palate. Dark chilli chocolate comes to the fore. A pleasant sharpness and an intense woody note alternate. Now ripe fruits and a malty sweetness come to the fore. Again, chocolate pushes forward, this time it's nut chocolate.
    • Finish
      After this multi-layered taste experience remains an intense and nutty finish, which spreads chubby warm in the mouth. For a long time, chocolate, espresso and dark fruits are remembered. A fine wooden note and again this nutty finish finish this wonderful dram.
