    Tasting Notes by Jim McEwan:

    Colour, Stunning warm gold with mellow yellow highlights 

    Aromas and Flavors,  At 6years old and 59.6 % it was fairly volatile as one would expect at this age,  However with a dash of water and the strength reduced to approx 50.0% the spirit revealed some beautiful aromas ,the marine influence gave a beautiful lemon and honey freshness,combine that with a oak vanilla butterscotch sweetness and you would think it was 10years old.  With some arreation gentle aromas and flavors of riverbank flowers like primrose ,buttercup and lily rose serenely with just a hint of bog Myrtle and heather in bloom.  The mellow oak encapsulates and gives the spirit a feeling of age that you would not expect at this age,this  is down to thickness of the oak staves in this rare type of cask.  A brilliant young Brookie full of the passion of the man that made it.

    This is the charity Bloodtub Bruichladdich raffled off on their Open Day in 2010 in favour of the Islay Boys Football Team. A gang of eight Lads won it - the label's inscription refers to them.
