Whisky Reviews for Bruichladdich 10-year-old

Surprisingly fruity with pears, citrus and passion fruit. Will be increasingly saltier and fresher. Beach walk.
Firm salty onset with sparkling minerality, some grass, citrus and fruity notes of pear.
Long, salty, maritime.
- Yeah, before, and the grass was greener and the base ten at Brukladi was that it was necessary - an excellent mole, extremely diverse in the components, rich and deep, pitey, cool, even you do not want to disassemble it, you just need to drink while you still have the opportunity. Eh, such basic mellows, yes in every line ...
Restrained, dry, processed wood of noble breeds, red wine, black currant, berry notes, strawberry jam, dried fruits-dried apricots, raisins; apple pastila, light shades of the barnyard, leavened wort.
Saturated, sweet, berry-fruit abundance, candied fruits, exotic fruits, which is not there, the obvious presence of red wine, maybe even a port of ruby;
Juicy, berry-fruit in the frame of wine and oak notes, creamy confectionery motifs.
- [October, 2012] I had this dram during a Prof. Schobert "Islay" tasting at Bonn.
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 82,5. At this time I took detailed notes of whisky only if it really interested me.
- A satin body. Not bad for his age.
Fresh, clean. very soft sea air. Wild flowers among the dunes. A picnic at the beach. Very nice.
Summer fruits. Passion fruit. Zesty,almost effervescent, Bruichladdich at its fruitiest.
The flavours meld, with a late frisson of sharpness.
- Light and sweet, very drinkable. Correct strength and balance. Nice for this age, but not impressive. Anyway, nice finish with sweeteness was good.
Vanilla, flowers, beeswax and fruits.
Toast with butter, vanilla, zest, green tea and banana. Some ginger.
Sweet malt and citrus fruits. Fresh and medium long.
