- Very interesting Whisky-Connaisseur sounds like a really nice laddie how do you score it out of 100, what is your rating?
- 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!
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.
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
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.
