  1. Rosebank88 scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Beautiful balance of fruity sweetness and fine sea flavors.

  2. Superted scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    Bruichladdich Infinity (55.5%, OB)  A mix of Port Charlotte and Bruichladdich from 100% refill sherry casks, but with no peated Laddie from the 1998 runs, unlike in the ‘3D’. It’s been bottled exclusively for four independent retailers like Royal Mile Whiskies, Loch Fyne etc. The nose is really beautiful with a superb peat, very refined and elegant. Hints of beer, with quite some sherried notes. Bold and subtle at the same time. The finish is very, very salty. Wow, there are still some brilliant casks at Bruichladdich's, it appears! 90 points.

    Beautifully done!
    • Nose
      Sweet sherry and soft peat.  Damp campers wood.  Smoky serrano peppers.   Gingerbread.  
    • Taste
      Mouth coating.  Sweet and peppery.  Sherried peat....love that! More with the wet wood.  Raisinettes.  Burnt toast, then tar.
    • Finish
      Long, salty, and smoky.  Soft peat, then white pepper.

  5. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Salty, iodized, fresh, with lemon ... no, refreshing oranges and nutmeg. Behind, hides the cereals. And maybe some red fruits. In the mouth: what, 55,5 ° ??? Incredible, it looks a lot less! Warm, woody, honeyed and especially salty! Final on coffee, fruits, bitter orange. Very long ! And very salty. I love sweet / salty, but when too much salt is bad for gluttony, it spoils my pleasure. That's exactly why I do not like Margarita (the salty Tequila cocktail, not the pizza!) With water, oranges are even more present on the nose. Enthusiasm 3/5

  7. Allandale scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Intens. A good old Bruichladdich.
    • Nose
      Some laze smoke slowly disengages itself from the thick barley.
    • Taste
      Enormously viscous as the honeycombed barley grips to the roof of the mouth while sweet peat thuds around the palate.
    • Finish
      Some timid vanillins shove their head above the peaty parapet.

    Vatting of Port Charlotte and Bruichladdich
    from 100% refill sherry casks.

    At least three batches of this 1st Infinity was bottled that i know of.
    Bottled: 25 Feb 2005 , 12 Oct 2005, 07 march 06 .
    Bottling dates can be found somewhere at the bottom edge of the bottle .

    Colour variations in whisky and on the labels can also be seen.
    Opened 05.09.2019, Batch 12 Oct 2005, and i have to up the score from 85->88 . Time in the bottle, almost 15 years, has mellowed this quite a bit, more fruity than i remembered, no reminiscence of new make anymore. Smoke and peat has also integrated beautifully.

    Colour: Old gold-amber
    Nose: At full strength, it is spirity, on varnish and rubber, then it
    develops on dry and rye bread, with some peat. Firm malt. The sherry influence
    is relatively discreet. Diluted, it gets creamier, on toffee and the sherry is
    getting more pronounced.
    Taste: Nice and juicy malt, on underlying peat, with tangerine and orange
    aromas. The malt is sweet and the texture very pleasant. The finish is long, on
    nice and round peat, with some smoke, a sweet maltiness. Diluted, it gets more
    maritime and the smoke (tobacco leaves) more
    pronounced.

    General Impression: This whisky is
    rich, with a remarkable balance between the sherry, the peat and the malt.
