    This nice 25 years old bottling of
    Bruichladdich is well-rounded, balanced and complex. A lovely and
    delicate summer malt, with the right amount of soft fruit and
    warming spice. The alcohol is almost perfectly tamed. It's
    fantastic for its age, having retained the signature freshness,
    especially on the nose. Indeed a cheery summer sunset dram.

    I thank Douglas Laing for the sample and the photograph!

    • Nose
      Initially fruity with a potpourri of pears, yellow apples, bananas and
      juicy oranges. Lovely inebriant with a tender alcoholic bite. Toffee and
      delicate notes of
      butterscotch arrive, nicely mingling with subtle oak, hints of
      salt and a fresh whiff of sea breeze in the back.
    • Taste
      Bold, intense and nicely warming start on the palate with oak spice,
      black pepper and allspice, complemented by a discreet creamy sweetness.
      Less fruity on the palate
      as the nose suggests. Stewed fruit's coming through, rather dark
      fruits than the yellow ones on the nose, followed by drying notes of
      oak and a touch of ginger and anise towards the
    • Finish
      The finish is long and creamy sweet with a warming mix of oak spice,
      pepper, and caramelised ginger. Becomes significantly dry on the tail
      with a hint of sea
      With water: On the nose, lots of yellow fruit's
      coming through with a splash of water, while the oaky spiciness and the
      alcoholic bite almost disappear. Smooth, soft and
      elegant on the palate with yellow fruits, tangerines and quince
      in particular. The warming spiciness is significantly tamed while more
      dry notes of oak and allspice arrive towards the finish.
      The finish is a bit shorter, slightly warm and creamy with oak,
      pepper and ginger. Soft stewed yellow fruits on the tail.
