- Oh my... i tried the mini and i also got the 0,7L bottle.
Wanna taste this ?
Open this one up for like half an hour and then leave it on the side for a week before drinking...
It's incredible how the white wine alcoholic nose disappears and softens, breathing improves it so much !
I am now swapping my first 83p to 87p just for the radical change...
- A good Whisky,
but for my taste too much alcohol in the nose and there also not 'clear' enough - one has to search for the aromas, they are a kind of hidden.
All in all quite mouldy, dusty and earthy with too much barley and hay. Quite fiery.
... and keep in mind: Tongue and oral mucosa are damaged for 24 hours ...
Apples, raisins, mint, some solvents, apricots and peaches in alcohol, tropical fruits in rum, coffee and coffee liqueur, wet rotten wood, (unfortunately) again and again a floral and perfumed note, pine, traces of smoke, traces of chocolate and / or toffee, a little butter, a touch of honey, hay and grain and mouldy warehouse.
The nose is quite 'instable' and a quite strong alcohol stays all the time.
Sweetness, citrus (very nice one!), Fudge, nuttiness, creamy and full, old dried vanilla pod, salt (... is getting more and more - very nice!), Coconut shell, almonds (?), Butterscotch;
old lemonade, some honey, wood smoke, mint, very bitter / bitter cocoa powder.
Also here we get that hay and grain and moldy warehouse that 'murders' the beautiful other aromas ...
Very powerful impression - and the alcohol is integrated now.
Sweet finish plus spicy wood, lots of salt, nut, old vanilla pod, aftertaste of lentil vegetables, again beautiful wood smoke and cocoa powder.
- A very nice surprise. Probably one of the oldest Brackla´s I had so far. Supposed to be bottled around 1983, so around 14y old.
Starts with lots of raisins. Hints of rum as well. Moist fruit cake. Cooked apples. Also hints of sweet sherry. Cedar wood. Cumin and Mint-toffee. Pine.
Fudge and butterscotch. Cocoa-butter. Nutiness of roasted almonds. Delicous chewy and creamy. Gingerbread. Notes of vanilla and honey at the background.
Long with a loverly woodiness. A little nutmeg. Cinnamon. Mint.
