- The American bottling (750ml) of this 1970 Bruichladdich gives a clear age statement on the label that it is "AGED IN OAK CASKS FOR 31 YEARS".
- Fruit atom bomb????????????
- What a dram! I was skeptically about the high ratings and the hype so the only way to solve this is to open a bottle. Wow! The nose starts strong, and then you take the first sip and are in heavy which literally does not end. The finish is super long and really smooth! If you have the chance give it a try, you will not regret it!
Huge citrus fruits, vanilla, very fresh and fruity, sweet and sour sauce.
Felt like an old Speysider, mellow, sweet and elegant, Magnolia flowers, papaya.
Chewing gum fruits, long, vanilla.
- Quite a fruit bomb, honey toffee vanilla orange, apricot jam, really nice
- I had a bottle of this years ago so nice to try it now, a great dram, a little fragile and the wood is creeping in but the quality is still there.
Price point is for what it was back in the day.
- Bruichladdich at its best.
Lovely honey and orange combo, crème brulee, burnt brown sugar, then after a while a little wood varnish, finally some biscuit.
Orange cream mixed in with a few wines notes and a little bitterness from the cask but its ok.
Honeycomb, a little plum, and grape skins.
Quite long, elegant and refined.
- A little bit of an oily body.
Heavy, blossomy aroma. Fruit trees. Fresh limes. Wonderful. Lovely.
Gentle, slow start. Leafy , malty, Brooding. Complex. Nice.
Surge of spicy, sandy flavours. Very spicy.
