Tasting Note by Bruichladdich
Nose: The smoke is calmed by the marine, ozone character,
time has brought a
balance, a harmony in the combination of oak, smoke and spirit. While the smoke is
always discernible on the nose it is dry, earthy, peatash in its style and so allows the oak
to come forward with waves of golden caramel, fudge, vanilla custard, hints of ginger,
nutmeg and clove. There is citrus fruit, coaxed from the glass with a drop of water,
gentle lemon meringue and clementine. Breathe deeply and the floral aromas of wild
thyme, heather and sea pink bring you to this Atlantic coast.
Palate: On the palate there is a noticeable delicacy and softness in texture and style.
Again, the balance of flavour is superb as the smoke wraps loosely around the
sweetness drawn from deep within the oak. Coconut, vanilla custard, lemon honey
combines with smoked oysters and sun baked salty sand.
Finish: The finish is sublime, smoky sure, but also the soft sweetness of fudge and
malted barley, orange, mango and Banoffee pie hinting of the depth and quality of the
oak. The many layers interchange on each sip. As the smoke comes and goes so too
the notes of the spirit, ripe apple and apricot, beautifully intertwined with malt and oak
sweetness and that typical Port Charlotte style dry smoke.
