Whisky Reviews for Bruichladdich Links VII
6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.40 points
- Nose: Prunes, dried fruits, creamy soft texture, forest berries. Taste. Sweet, Apple. The taste of alcohol.
- The nose is beautiful, but the tartness and soap in the mouth and finish is too special for me today.
Fruity few notes. Still citrus peel, orange, little oak. Sweet wine barrel that leaves the spirit still breathing.
Tart notes, Campari, wine and something perfumed. More powerful than expected.
Herb, Campari, oak. Something perfume-like, slightly soapy. Not uncomfortable, but striking.
- Very nice summer whisky
The first thing I encounter is sour blood orange. But really nice and clear. Behind it some marzipan and I find my peach. There's a fresh, lively note inside. Smells of such a summer wine cocktail. I'll let it stand…
With a little time in the glass, the cocktail aromas become clearer. Lime, melon, berries and tonic water. In contrast, some dry wood and a slightly alcoholic tinge.
Only soft start. Then there is a floral, spicy taste. Some honeydew melon, vanilla and again the blood orange. A hint of dark chocolate and subtle sour cherries. A pleasant alcoholic sharpness revives the whisky and churns up the taste again. The second sip I find the marzipan again. Add a few dashes of lemon and thickened grape juice.
Medium. Freshly fruity and with a hint of licorice. It ends with a dry, sour lime aroma.
- It is a very fresh and positive mole, very rich and varied for its age, tidy, well-balanced.
Fresh, invigorating, flowery-fruity, lemonade, malt and dust in the background, nectarines, red sweet apples, lemon rind, caramel, weak lacquer notes, flower pollen, propolis, pruned grapes, dusty wood, koch-and-nor pencils.
Sweet-citrus, a wave of lemon pepper, lemonade, triple-sec, very fresh and cheerful, then there is a light oak bitterness, lollipops, candied ginger, orange peel, kumquats.
Sweet-oak, soft, bark, light grassy bitterness, thyme, orange and grapefruit crusts, confectionery notes - shortcake, jam, sugar icing.
- blind tasting
fudge, floral, clean, fruity - cherry and strawberries
coffee, grains, fudge, sulpher and bitter fruits
earthy, spices - pepper and bitter
- N: Orange, sugared almonds, blueberry, caramel, vanilla, lime, apricot and barley.
T: Roasted almond, orange, caramel, brown sugar, lime, leather and a little mint.
F: Toffee, roasted almond, orange, blueberry, brown sugar, smoke and nutmeg.
Seems to be a mix of sherry and bourbon casks.
