GlenSikkes
Connoisseur GlenSikkes Note
29 Jan 2017 1:54 pm

Notes by producer;


Richer than most Br bottlings but still easy drinking, this dram ramps up the spice and chocolate notes and received praise from whisky writers worldwide.

Cask details;
Three refill hogsheads distilled in 1992.

Tasting Notes;

Nose
Sweet and floral, with grassy meadows, straw, honeysuckle and touches of Honeydew melon.
  • Palate
    Spicy to start, with brown sugar softening cinnamon and nutmeg heat. Heather honey and milk chocolate notes develop, along with hazelnut brittle and sweet vanilla.
  • Finish
    Warming and spicy, fading to clove studded oranges.

jazzpianofingers gave this whisky 86 points

N: Balanced and composed as well as being uber-vibrant

T: This delivers! A full, broad delivery with a sour, creamy, deep development. Grain whisky can only dream of this elemental complexity.

F: Standard finish. lovely finish overall

C: Really decent although nothing outstanding, but Bruichladdich fans will love this larger than life slugger. One for many occasions.
