    [June, 2016]  Together with friends I emptied bottle no. 232 that I bought for 135 Euro in June, 2016.

    In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 87,5.  My notes state a very sweet winey and quaffable dram that lacks a little depth and complexity to make it to 90 points.

    [March, 2019] I had another dram at a FoSM club tasting - a straightforward whisky that is easy drinkable with a rather simple (but tasty) profile.
    • Nose
      88 88
      The colour is old gold and the nose offers a sweet winey-malty profile with ripe fruits and spices. It is not the most complex one but nice to sniff.
    • Taste
      87 87
      The taste is winey-sweet with barley sugars, spices and some bitter notes (herbs, tannins). Again rather simple but easy to sip. Water releases chalky-mineral aromas in the nose and turns the taste sweeter with less bitter notes (and the chocolate pops up earlier). I like this dram best when reduced to about 40% abv.
    • Finish
      88 88
      The initial mouthfeel is warming but just a little coating with a minor bitter-drying moment (tannins). The finish is of medium length and adds some tasty milk chocolatey and nougat flavours that I like. No distracting moments here.

    • Nose
      Vanilla, full of fruit, it is relatively wise and melted.
    • Taste
      Sweet and fragrant, I waited for something a little more expressive, more explosive, in short, less wise. Influence of Sauternes not obvious.
    • Finish
      Too wise yet, but still nice.

      Enthusiasm
      Nose 4/5
      Mouth & Finale 3/5

      Very drinkable and pleasant without a doubt. I guess my expectations were too high.

  5. GJR scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Too complex to describe completely after two short tests. Super Laddie .....
    • Nose
      Sauterne comes through well. Fresh with lots of fruit. Stone fruit combined with citrus and vanilla. Snappy. Complex.
    • Taste
      Balanced complexity. Fruits, grapes, firm. Some ginger and lemongrass. Very light tannin in the background.
    • Finish
      Long, firm and warm. Sweetness, with dark tones.

    F: medium gold, light red N: sweet and fruity, fruits: peach / apricot? Alcohol discreetly noticeable G: very light body, sweet and fruity like that - is the dram tasteless, or is that autosuggestion? A: long, so + H2O: no new impressions
    Not much to discover in the dram, but a treat

    • Finish
      Warming, long with a spiced fruityness

    A very successful single cask from the crew Valinch series by Bruichladdich! For such a long maturation in the sweet-wine barrel, some facets are surprisingly dry and the fruitiness is not as clear as with other Bruichladdich from Sauternes barrels. Nevertheless unmistakable and a pleasure for me as a friend of (maturing) maturation in these barrels. With a splash of water he likes me, unusually for me, best.
    • Nose
      Sweet and fresh with malty cereal notes and fresh vanilla biscuits. As far as typical Bruichladdich. In particular, I find that both the initial maturation in the ex-Bourbon barrel, as well as the maturation in Sauternesfass very differentiated perceptible. Vanilla, honey sweetness, caramel, pineapple and mango come from the Bourbon barrel. Later comes creamy and very sweet wine note, the Sauternes is there. Green apple, honeydew melon and caramelized sugar. Behind it lies, well concealed but unmistakably a surprisingly strong spice of pepper and noticeable alcohol influence. With a little water, it becomes even sweeter, milder and the spice goes back. The aromas are complemented by apple rings (Haribo!) And Toffifee.
    • Taste
      Soft and reserved at first, caramel, light fruit notes and some vanilla pastry dominate first. The Bruichladdich often very pronounced "oiliness" in the mouth does not want to adjust quite. After a few moments on the tongue, it becomes peppery and intense. Wow, that comes unexpectedly and almost reminds of Talisker. With water, the heat goes back and it is creamy and softer, even the missing oiliness in the mouth is then a bit far
    • Finish
      When the sharp start on the tongue vanishes, the medium-long finish begins. First with soft coffee notes and fine bitterness, which after a few years in a wine barrel to good sound. Then the fruits reappear: honeydew melon, applesauce, dried apricots and mangos. At the end of the departure he becomes drier again.
