About four weeks ago, German online whisky retailer whic.de released four new bottlings, three of which I will review today.
|Bottled for:||Whic Whiskycircle|
|Age:||11 Years Old|
|Category:||Single Malt Scotch Whisky|
|Cask Type:||Sherry Hogshead|
|Cask Number:||1333 (part of)|
|Number of bottles:||36|
Hints of sweet malt balanced by the spicy flavor of smoked bacon. Is the smokehouse located near a beach? Seems so, because the smell of sun dried seaweed and sea salt is in the air. Then green apples, honey dew melons, white peaches and some oranges emerge, rounded off by a few green coffee beans.
Unexpected strong with a brief sweetness, followed by the spiciness of black pepper and ginger. A bit of smoke accompanied by candied citrus peels and a whiff of coffee.
Medium. Drying with a light sweetness. Lemons, salt and hints of bonfire smoke.
This is a rich Bruichladdich with a lot of power and intensity. I like it!
Score: 84 / 100
