Tasting Notes by Jim McEwan, head distiller;
Character: This is the epitome of Bruichladdich style, a confident single malt.
Colour: Bright, golden sunlight.
Nose: With sherbet fizz and nougat sweetness it’s balanced by the strong, mellow, oaky flavours from the 1st fill Bourbon hogsheads which add lashings of butterscotch, fudge and bonbons to this stylish and elegant dram. The aromas of unpeated, crisp malted barley explode from the glass, slipstreamed by the freshest fruit flavours - notes of cantaloupe melons, grapes, guava and persimmon.
Palate: Medium weight, strong and robust. A spirit that is packed with vitality and flavour bursting from the glass and eager to please.
Finish: This is as easy as it gets with single malt. It’s in top condition, there is no colouring and no chill-filtration. It’s unpeated, its flawless.
Mood: Any time of day malt. Equally good as an aperitif as after dinner.
