Whisky Reviews for Bruichladdich 2010 Islay Barley

6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 83.26 points

  1. Dram Brigade scored this whisky 84 points Expert Junior

    The taste of peaty whiksy without the peat and doesn't taste like an oxidized whisky is the great signature of this whisky. Quite lovely.
    • Nose
      Sweaty shirts? This whisky is unpeated, however its islay barley hence the coal smell is still present! Seaside saltiness, sourish malt, with some vanilla and lemon.
    • Taste
      Sweet vanilla, follow by salted caramels and end with pepper. The slighty thick mouth feel, oily and saltiness covered the high abv very well until the end when the huge pepper punch on the tongue!
    • Finish
      Medium long, sweaty peppery and some sweetness.

    N- Now terroir comes into play, an excellent 2009/15. Expectation level are high on this new release by a new Master Distiller. Soft tarry notes upfront though unpeated, more apparent salted toffee, vanilla sauce, oily butter and sourish malt in the middle, with nice fresh citrus in mix, pleasantly complex and evolving. But feel oilier and sweeter over times as the citrus subsided.P- Melted nicely on the palate, showing more wood as well the vanilla, sweet cigar smokes, nutmeg and good dose of rustiness that resembling zesty young mango. Remains round for a while, before thicken with more grain-y sweet, which get some cloying notes.

    F- Medium long, initial rum-ish sweetness that I think a bit out of place. Charred malt, chocolate, cereal and oat.  Playing well most of the match but conceding a late goal.— at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.
