  1. aphex scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    I really liked the nose. It opened since the bottle opening a few months ago. Palate was nice too but maybe a tad too sweet for my taste. Overall a very nice whisky.
    • Nose
      A little bit of honey, a nice mix of melon and red fruits (I had that in Porto in a Wine Bar on a cheese and cured meat plate), whiffs of pencil shavings, some tannins and leather and mentholated notes.
    • Taste
      Honey, oranges, red fruits, spicy oak and a pinch of salt. Fruity sweetness, borderline candy-like.
    • Finish
      Medium, sweetness, liquorice.

  2. wisekycourse scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    camphor and licorice candies, herbs, woody and variegated fruits.
    • Nose
      salty, sweetened by the fruits, woody and grassy (kind of a mown field!), fruits in compote, malt and trace of glue.
    • Taste
      sweet spices, cinnamon, woody tannin, a little rough, fruits on cooked apples, red fruits also a little simmered
      the impregnated wood spring amplifies the flavors.

    Enthusiasm 3/5 Whisky n ° 1688
    • Nose
      Pretty cool. Relatively unobtrusive malt for a Bruichladdich. Indistinct fruity that settles and imposes itself. Does not reach peaks in terms of volume.
    • Taste
      Round and fruity. Here malt is fully expressed. It lacks a bit of identity.
    • Finish
      In the continuity of the mouth.

    Bruichladdich Tasting Notes:

    Character

    Absolutely sublime. The
    viscosity is just so succulent and velvety it’s extraordinary. You can
    feel the texture generously enveloping the entire palate.

    Colour



    Gorgeous amber/golden russet/deep chestnut.

    Nose



    Opens on the sweetness of
    the American oak. Brown sugar, oak tannins with a twist of cinnamon and
    a hint of aniseed and liquorice all from the Bourbon casks. This is
    followed by melon, pear, green apple and gooseberry. Add a little water
    and the notes from La Fleur rise serenely popping like champagne bubbles
    onto the olfactory senses, succulent plump grapes, pomegranate,
    raspberry, red currant, it’s an incredible experience. Add to that the
    marine freshness and the mellowness of the oak, its seductive, its super
    smooth, as disarming a bouquet as there is in the world of single malt.

    Palate



    Wow the change is
    amazing. Now it’s the red fruits from the wine casks that caress the
    palate smooth and seductive follow by the freshness of the green fruit.
    The salty tang from Islay maturation can be detected. It’s like a light
    sea mist gently caressing the taste buds and lifting and melting the
    various flavours into a single taste of such harmony that I believe it’s
    one of the most enjoyable whiskies I have tasted from a single cask.

    Finish



    An utterly sensational
    non peated Islay malt that delivers the Bruichladdich message with a
    style that no other Islay spirits possess. Amazing.

    Mood



    Indulgent.

    Odd and nice Laddie. Liked it a lot!
    • Nose
      Menthol, wine, oak and eucalyptus
    • Taste
      A lot is going on, eucalyptus, liquorice, some saltiness and oak.

      Oily texture.
    • Finish
      Long and lingering with mint and liquorice
