Color
Old gold
Nose

Malz, Feigen, Rosinen, ganz leichte Minze, etwas Gummi (aber überhaupt nicht störend), Vanille

Taste

Holz, sanfte Kräuter, Vanille

Finish

Gummi tut sich auf, aber gleichzeitig öffnen sich auch die Fruchtnoten, der Alkohol wärmt das Herz

Comments

nicht komplex, aber ohne Fehler, kann als guter Standardwhisky daherkommen, hat seine Jugend schon beinahe überwunden. Dieser NAS arbeitet auf grundsolidem Level, äussert aber seine Fröhlichkeit nicht nur mit der türkis-farbigen Flasche.
Meine Flasche: P/132011 13/286, abgefüllt am 10. Dez. 2013; Barcode: 5055807400312.

Color
Yellow gold
Nose

Big impact on the nose, little bit hot. Citrus, pears, figgs/dades, spices (nutmeg, vanilla), wood, some little earthy notes. Whiff of smoke and some leather.

Water seems to close down the nose for some reason.

Taste

Warm smooth attack. Citrus, malty, little bit of cream.

With water the spice and alcohol tones down a bit and some smoky notes comes through more. Better with water.

Finish

Finishing with some spice (pepper), ending in sweetness (honey, melon). Little bit of oaky notes in the end as well. Ending little bit dry. The finish is quite long.

Comments

Interesting and quite complex whisky. Little bit on the hot side without water. Slightly out of balance. Taste was lacking a bit behind the nose.

Score 81-83 points.

Not terrible but Bruichladdich are capable of so much more. Very 'hot' and underwhelming for the cost.

Color
Jonquiripe corn
Nose

etwas Alkohol, leichter Rauch, ein Hauch Rosinen, Karamell, ein bisschen Sherry und Malz

Taste

schlecht eingebundener Alkohol, der Whisky ist heiss, Sherry, Rosinen, leichter Rauch oder metallische Jugend, schwer zu unterscheiden

Finish

etwas Eiche und Sherry, sowie einen Hauch Rauch oder ist es metallische Jugend?

Comments

Der schlecht eingebundene Alkohol zieht ihn herunter. Dazu scheint er jung, kaum Eiche, ist aber wohl eine Sherryreifung mit nur wenig Rauch. Eigentlich gar kein Rauch, vielleicht ist es ja auch metallische Jugend. Vermutlich ein Bruichladdich. Schätze mal der Sherry Classic

Im Rahmen einer Adventskalenderaktion blind verkostet.
