Tasting Note by Bruichladdich
Nose: The bouquet is brilliant. Opening with barley sugar and a hint of mint before
leading into the most wonderful notes of freshly cut wild flowers; buttercup, daisy,
meadowsweet, myrtle, primrose and cherry blossom. The cleanliness of the spirit is
remarkable. As the seconds tick by, more aromas rise from the glass, little zephyrs of
spindrift and sea pinks reminding you that this spirit is matured exclusively by the sea.
After some four or five minutes and with the addition of a little water, caramelised fruits
drift onto the scene; lemon drops and honey, tangerine and tablet.
Palate: The palate entry is so refined and refreshing, the sweet oak and the barley
arriving together sending the taste buds into raptures. The fruits from distillation drift in
on an Atlantic breeze and pop on the tongue like champagne bubbles. A combination of
ripe green fruit, brown sugar and sweet malt bring closure. A taste back in time, a
realisation that not all single malts are equal and to achieve the absolute optimum, you
must use barley that is made in Scotland. Make this one the benchmark for all others
you meet on your journey through the stills of Scotland.
Finish: Unforgettable! Its best enjoyed in good company, you just don’t want the
evening to end. It brings warmth to the heart and soul. The clock slows down and the
cares of tomorrow disappear into the dawn.
