  1. Lu Cifer scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Very fruity, grated apple, vanilla, with some sherry and raisins, touch of orange, slightly malty, very appealing ...

    Fiery onset, tingling and burning on the tongue, light spice, oak, here comes the fruity note with a slight sweetness.

    very soft and fruity, some oak. First something "furry" with a tart, slightly astringent wood note, then soft and fruity, long and slightly fizzy, delicious!

    you could call it mild - I think it's just weak - too young, too one-dimensional, boring, not my stuff

    From Whiskyfun    May 6, 2017

    Bruichladdich 2009/2016 ‘Bere Barley’ (50%, OB, 4th Edition, first fill bourbon) Bere is an ancient indigenous Scottish variety of barley which often yields significantly less alcohol and can be a 'bitch' to mash. I have loved the Arrans and Bruichladdichs made with Bere so far so expectations are high here. Colour: White wine. Nose: Extremely fresh. Full of grass, sea greens, moss, ferns, graphite and a lovely yeasty note; an autolytic character not unlike a good Brut Champagne or fresh sourdough. Lots of citrons, some wax and hints of pine cone. Wonderfully fresh and invigorating nose. With water: a little caraway and more ripe citrus fruit notes - leaning towards lemon oil. More nice grassy olive oil notes. Mouth: There is still a touch of new make about it but the distillate is pure and very good. More citrus rind, seashore, flinty mineral notes and cereal notes such as oatmeal. With water: becomes a little more floral and opulently fruity with notes of green and garden fruits. Still nicely coastal and gently waxy in texture. Finish: Good length. Robust and sharp with more gravelly mineral and fresh bread notes. Perhaps some sunflower seeds. Comments: I think when this distillate starts to hit 12 -15 it will be totally outstanding. I really hope they filled some refill barrels and hoggies with this juice! Probably some of the best 'young' whisky on the market. SGP: 574 - 88 points.
