Whisky Reviews for Bruichladdich 2001

- In view of the young age a quite impressive malt. The higher proportion of smoke knows to please me at least and gives the Resurrection Dram a certain independence and depth. Especially the nose like, very pleasant and with a clear view of the later published "Laddie 10", although of course with significantly more smoke. The former issue price of just under 40 € was fair, today's retail price of just under 100 + € should be something for fans and enthusiasts. Nevertheless a great experience, especially after the distillery has become more than "established".
One senses that here a more heavily used distillate was used (10ppm), as usual with Bruichladdich. A slight smoky note is omnipresent. Sweetish, but at the same time clearly maritime influences and slightly tart oak notes, despite the young age. Here is almost everything in it, from honey over citrus notes to fresh herbs. Consistent overall picture and far more mature and promising than the pure age would promise.
Very briefly shows the young age then. Not really sprittig or metallic, but with teething problems and a bit out of round. Then unripe (green) fruits, a little caramel and a light smoke. Decisive but after a short time the strong influence of the oak, spicy and salty-dry. Altogether very mild, blind I would have thought less than 46.0% Vol.
In the finish now comes the higher ppm content again to light. Smoke and bitter oak ensure a strong and medium-long finish.
- This is the first whisky with a vegetal note that I actually enjoyed.
Soft peat and smoke, watery honey, burnt sugar, something herbal or perhaps woody
Spice and peat arrival, in a rough and ready kind of way; develops into honey sweetness, with a vegetal note and some bitterness. Overall, and nice balance of sweet, peat, and veg.
Sweet peat and vegetal with a long but gentle spicy finish
- Tasting Notes by Jim McEwan, head distiller;
Character: Smooth and warming with all the goodness of the components really coming together. The clean marine and heather covered summer freshness in the spirit is wonderful and brings back happy memories of the day this shy beautiful spirit was reborn.
Colour: August Barley Straw.
Nose: You are welcomed by notes of honeyed mints, rosemary and thyme, soft marzipan and lemon zest, all very subtle and at one with each other. As the spirit warms others emerge, soft nougat, toffee and warm charred oak, toasted hazelnuts and little hints of fresh coconut.
Palate: As I write this, all the flavours have merged and are as one. Its pure zesty fragrance lifts the senses and the skill of the farmers, coopers and distillers are encapsulated both in my mind and memory of 10 years ago. It’s a beautiful pure spirit emerging for the first time into a much changed and happier home.
Finish: We, the crew of Bruichladdich 2011, are proud to introduce you to our first born. This spirit reflects the dedication and hopes of all our staff, the dedication to traditional ways has paid off, this is the proof. Our spirit will find its way through life, a pleasant journey and you can be part of it as you follow this Pilgrim’s progress.
Mood: Changing room nerves. OK Coral.

- For me, something too young and unbalanced. 3
Fresh, lemon, slightly crisp, vanilla and a hint of menthol.
A bit of youthful youth, slightly sprittig, got some of the bourbon barrels. The second time then much sweeter.
Spicy, covers the mouth and disappears again relatively late.
- A beautiful expression!
