  3. Calmar scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Quite a minimalistic and closed mole, not too diverse in the components for its age, but saturated and dense.
    • Nose
      Restrained, raw, processed wood, moist wood dust, light lemon notes, thinner, a bit of varnish, raw grains.
    • Taste
      Wood-mineral, light rubber notes, sawdust, varnish, resin, camphor, lemon in tea, cream tones, condensed milk, cream, orange.
    • Finish
      Light, sweet-spicy, a little ginger, orange peel, weak oak bitterness, warming, long enough.

  4. Allandale scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    The best bruichladdich in his mid-age.
    • Nose
      Gentle and soft. Sweet oak, flowers,vanilla,nutmeg,dried apple, apricot. Water brings out more toasty notes, hazelnut and milk chocolate.
    • Taste
      Rounded and creamy with a subtle interplay between vanilla-like oak, macaroons ,fruit and nut. Lovely.
    • Finish
      Fresh and crisp. Medium long it comes all together. Lovely aftertaste. Complex.

    Original Tasting Notes

    Colour:  Barley sugar

    Body:  Full-bodied but subtle.

    Nose:  Initially the aromas are of sweet cereals, then as it opens, custard creams and vanilla wafers are revealed followed by cedar and wild mint with just a hint of spice. Then the fruits evolve, nuances of green apples, fresh pear, ripe gooseberry and green grapes. Oak chips by the bucketful and toasted malt extract hold it all together and retain the balance of fruit and cereal.

    Palate:  Mouth-filling and delicious, incredibly complex and crisp. The oak in its prime does not overpower the malty sweetness nor the fresh green fruits in this parade of flavours. The oils retained from not chill-filtering succulently coat the palate with maple syrup sweetness. It´s scrumptious. The flavours are highlighted by the freshness only coastal maturation can impart.

    Finish:  Generous and pure, the best of Kentucky oak and Celtic skill combine to sparkle in this superb spirit.
