Whisky Reviews for Bruichladdich 2005

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 83.50 points

  1. ARDBERG scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    A gentle elegant slightly refrained Sauternes nose, mainly on caramelized apricots, some yellow plums, slightly herbal and oaky.

    The taste is comparatively bland and undefined, just sweet and woody. Intensive chewing brings out some fruit and prolongs the finish, but still the nose is not mirrored in the mouth. Very disappointing.The finish just gets over medium length after extensive chewing and rubbing the tongue to the gums. Boy, you need a manual for this whisky. Still I don't get why it was chosen to be a valinch in the first place. I am sure the warehouse must offer much better stuff.Fotowise, the most uninspired of the CVs so far. And Cloe is quite cute. But maybe that's art.

    Ah, and water brings out more oak on the nose and makes it less refrained, though the elegance is lacking now. Makes the taste slightly bitter at first then leaves a bland sweetness with reoccurring bitterness. The fruits have basically disappeared. It loses points for me with water and ask myself the same question: Why (bottle this as a valinch)?

    PS: the points refer to the dram without water.

    Nice sweet Sauternes, nose and finish are very good. The taste has nothing really special to offer, just is good.
