Whisky Reviews for Bruichladdich 1986 CA

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.80 points

  1. Ras Mazunga scored this whisky 87 points Super Administrator

    Great whisky with a lot influence from the cask. But because the spririt is so heavy it`s not a problem here. The taste and mouthfeel is that of pear juice. Not sure if I smell peat but there is some in the taste which is a Bruichladdich signature imo. Finish is long with a sort of spicy orange marmelade.

    A really lovely dram. Very easy going despite the strength. Could drink this all night.
    • Nose
      Typical Laddie, pears and apples; heather honey; maybe the tiniest hint of woodsmoke. Can't bring myself to water it.
    • Taste
      Stewed apples and rhubarb; a little dark chocolate. Some wood.
    • Finish
      Definitely get a sense of some age on the finish. like a licked pencil end, but not too strong. Lengthy.
