Color
Deep copper
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.

Comments

You can feel they played with different types of casks but it works for me. I like this kind of profile.

Color

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. 

Comments

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!

[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 sightly bitter finish.

There is no accounting for taste...

Color
Deep copper
Nose

Karamell und vergorener Apfelsaft, hinzu kommen Aromen von Käsefuß, Gewürzgurke, geröstete Haselnüsse, leicht maritime Anklänge

Taste

Wieder das dominante Karamell, Vollmichschokolade. etwas Salz, mit Zugabe von Wasser wird er zur Möbelpolitur

Finish

mittellang mit anhaltender säuerlicher Note

Comments

Wegen der permanenten säuerlichen Kompenente absolut nicht mein Ding - ein seltsamer Dram

Color

Nose

Vordergründig Karamell, dazu gemahlene Espressobohnen, tatsächlich auch ein Hauch Rauch, säuerliche Frucht, Quitte, und auch süßlich wie Mirabelle, leicht maritim, salzig, der Karamell köchelt und wird langsam dunkler, geröstete Nüsse kommen dazu, unglaublich cremig, mit etwas Zeit wird es frischer mit Kiwi und frisch aufgeschnittenem grünen Apfel, und immer wieder fett Karamell drüber...

Taste

cremig, fruchtig, süß, Mirabelle, dann Salz, trockener, viel Würze von der frischen Eiche, etwas Zimt, aber immer noch süß, Karamell, mit einem säuerlichen Unterton, Richtung Lakritze gehend, leicht bitter und würzig, Grapefruit, Espresso, das Virgin Oak Finish gibt immer mehr den Ton an

Finish

das Lakritzige bleibt, auch die säuerliche Note der Grapefruit, trockener werdend, Eiche, Fruchtschale, auch hier wieder ein Hauch Rauch mit dabei, mittellang

Comments

Spannend, gefällt mir von Schluck zu Schluck besser.
