Wood unknown but probably bourbon or refill hogsheads. Colour: full gold. Nose: typical Bruichladdich, not far from the first ‘un-ACED’ 10 and 15yo. Starts on notes of orange squash and fresh hazelnuts, then we have notes of peaches and clay and gooseberries and finally a little brine, fresh almonds, faint hints of rubber and touches of honey. Baklavas. Maybe not a lot of character but it’s clean and enjoyable ‘natural’ malt whisky. Mouth: this is rounder and creamier than expected at first sipping, more on apricot jam and light honey (acacia). More cereally as well (cornflakes). Notes of marzipan and milk chocolate and finally a slight bitterness from the oak (tannins). Medium bodied. Finish: not too long shortish actually, a tad maltier, with notes of coffee. Comments: very good old Bruichladdich but we’ve had better ones, especially what they distilled one year later! SGP:431 – 84 points.
