Significantly better nose than the 8-year-old from this series, but surprisingly rather weaker for my taste on the tongue and on the finish. In summary, the two bottlings give a total of very little, the one puts the focus more on the taste, the other more on the nose. In summary, an MP set, which I fortunately saved me. Not for connoisseurs, there is better Bruichladdich on every corner.
Significantly calmer and immediately more pleasing nose than the other two bottlings from this set. The alcohol now noticeably better integrated and less disturbing. But now a decent dose of citrus notes and a few green fruits, especially light grapes and apple notes. The whole thing with a pleasantly creamy honey note, which definitely makes you want more. Very neat nose, with which you can also deal with something and wants.
Like the 8-year-old here, surprisingly sweet and pleasantly fruity. This definitely fits and shows what a good first-fill Bourbon Cask can do. Very soft and mild for almost 63% Vol., Which you will not notice the Malt in any second. If the younger brother's focus was more on the fruits, then this one comes with a bit more citrus notes. Honestly, I liked the younger bottling but better in terms of taste a little better.
Medium long and quite pleasant. We dry here a bit faster than the 8-year-old and can not save as much the fruit sweetness in the finish. Again, without technical errors or disturbing notes. Again, I liked the slightly younger malt better without it being bad here.
