  1. ffmdino did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    boah, difficult
    great and solid malt
    I really liked the taste buds and even overwhelmed me
    • Nose
      The cowshed is right !!, light leather, vanilla decreases, spicy, oak comes, milk chocolate, light cheese and increases, light creme brulee
      later rubber
      with water: more vanilla, sweeter, more cheese, light apple
    • Taste
      full and strong on the palate, tingling somewhat
      spicy, oak !!
      all in all it's really great without me being able to attach it to anything
      with water: cowshed, spicy
    • Finish
      warm, oak, bitter, light leather
      with water: spicy, cowshed again

  2. EarlMobile scored this whisky 85 points Expert Junior

    Beautifully balanced Bruichladdich with lots of sweetness, fruits and a nice hint of vanilla. Delicious!

  3. rottendon scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Yes, he has something. Relatively typical for Bruichladdich, beautifully balanced, especially the dry sweetness pleases, even if the effect is clearly the strongest at the first sip and then fades somewhat. Had the finish been even more spectacular, it would have been a top scoring.
    • Nose
      Start with some gum and yellow fruits. After that, a beautiful smoky herbal mixture manifests. After a long service life he is there, the cowshed, still with some rubber. In addition to subtle, sparkling clean apple notes and some cake dough. Warms up fuller, more pleasing and now with a sweep of caramel. The cowshed becomes a perfectly integrated smoke note.
    • Taste
      Sweet and astringent, great combination in the start. Already in the foreground is an oak board soaked in malty peaty sweetness. In addition undefinable musty notes. The alcohol is well integrated and yet powerful, the consistency pleasantly oily.
    • Finish
      In the finish, he is still bitter and clearly ashy. However, the whole thing is unexpectedly short.
