  1. aphex scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    You can feel they played with different types of casks but it works for me. I like this kind of profile.
    • Nose
      Reminds me of a few iterations of Micro-Provenance wine finish Laddies (port, sherry, amarone). Red fruits, dried fruits, spices, roasted nuts and farmy notes.
    • Taste
      Creamy. Caramel, berries, raisins, spices, coffee, dark chocolate and a bit of oak.
    • Finish
      Long, oaky, drying.

    Feis Ile stands for speciality and rarity. This Bruichladdich is special and has its own character so I would say it is a nice and well done Feis Ile Bottling. Sláinte! 
    • Nose
      Bruichladdich smoke and salt with a decent wine note in the back. Nice balance, no water needed!
    • Taste
      the wine character is now more intense and brings some sweetness from berries & honey in front. The Bruichladdich smoke surrounds the taste nicely! Still definitely no water needed. The dram has a very nice balance how it is! 
    • Finish
      Also the finish is nice.. maybe a bit unspectacular and the youth is giving some metallic bitterness but I still like it.

    [June, 2016]  I had this dram during a "Feis Ile 2016" 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.  My notes state a bitter finish.

  7. Mannix65 scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    Absolutely not my thing because of the permanent sour component - a strange dram
    • Nose
      Caramel and fermented apple juice, flavors of cheese base, gherkin, roasted hazelnuts, light maritime hints
    • Taste
      Again, the dominant caramel, Vollmichschokolade. a little salt, with the addition of water, he becomes furniture polish
    • Finish
      medium long with persistent sour note

    Exciting, I like better from sip to sip.
    • Nose
      Superficial caramel, with ground espresso beans, actually also a hint of smoke, sour fruit, quince, and also sweetish like mirabelle, slightly maritime, salty, the caramel is simmering and slowly darker, roasted nuts are added, incredibly creamy, with some time it will fresh with kiwi and freshly sliced ​​green apple, and over and over again fat caramel over it ...
    • Taste
      creamy, fruity, sweet, mirabelle, then salt, drier, much spiciness from the fresh oak, some cinnamon, but still sweet, caramel, with a sour undertone, going towards licorice, slightly bitter and spicy, grapefruit, espresso, the virgin Oak Finish is increasingly setting the tone
    • Finish
      the licorice remains, also the sourish note of the grapefruit, getting drier, oak, fruit peel, here again a hint of smoke with it, medium long
