Very cute, this blast from the past with "antique" Bere barley. Beautiful project and great presentation. The nose stands out, with that jenever vibe, cruciferous veggies, wet logs, ketjap, baby vomit (weird sweet-savoury malty notes). The palate is more straightforward, with the oak coming through and that raw Bruichladdich spirit not giving in to it. Honey sweet, rich barley sugars, meat and carrot stew. Sweet potatoes. A tad mineral, with a dry finish, back on juniper and chamomile. Youthful, a bit hot. Water brings more bitterness, woodsap. Leafy and dank. Quite heady, the sweetness overwhelms a bit in the end.

Color

Nose

Fresh. Malty (lots of cereals actually), fruity (melon, bananas, apples), farmy (grass, hay).

Taste

Thick and flavory. Fruity and tart (bananas and peaches Haribo sweets), honey, spicy oak. There's some lemon and a pinch of salt too. Tasty !

Finish

Long, zesty, malty and fruity.

Comments

This one definitely won some points with aeration. Last time I tasted it (around 2 years ago), I didn't enjoy it as much as tonight. An uncomplicated and tasty dram.

very wonderful whisky, despite the young age. Colour is pale gold, nose and taste reminds some fruits like  peach, apricot,  with a final of mango and a little bit a waxy and honey note. It's not a simple or immediate whisky, it needs various careful tasting to discovery all the flavours. There is no peat or excessive sherry note, it' s just a straight sincere whisky, only in the appereance a simple one, but a very complete whisky to a more careful analysis. Very important date, the price is very good (50-60 euros), maybe one of the best products in terms of price/quality

in my opinion score  90

Tasting notes from the distillery,

Nose : The bouquet is totally disarming. Add a dash of water to tease the shy aromatics of water lily, buttercup, gorse and fern before floral notes mingle with the aromas of sweet malt and brown sugar. Then gooseberry, pear, apple and lemon are met by malted barley rising in harmony with the vanilla rich oak. A revelation of how pure and crisp a young single malt can be.

Taste : The texture is so very succulent. Lemon meringue laced with warm honey, then the tidal surge of slow-distilled spirit that floods the palate with wave after wave of delicious The texture is so very succulent – lemon meringue drizzled with warm honey, then the tidal surge of slow distilled spirit floods the palate with wave after wave of delicious soft fruits, as lush as one will ever discover in a single malt. A super sweet, butterkist flavour with just a hint of summer flowers and you realise you are in the company of something wonderful, something rare.soft fruits as one will ever discover in a single malt. You realise you are in the company of something wonderful, something rare. A super sweet butterkist flavour, with just a hint of wild summer flowers. The mid-palate introduces the oak character which gives us glazed hazelnuts.

Finish : It is very impressive for a spirit so young and a grain so old. There is an air of gentle grace and innocence that ascends from this spirit that I have never before experienced. A refined, delicate, beautiful whisky that will haunt you for a long time.
