That Boutique-y Whisky Company Bruichladdich Tasting Notes

Posted: November 27, 2014 in Bruichladdich, Scotch Whisky A-G

That Boutique-y Whisky Company Bruichladdich Batch 1 49.6%

Tasted: July 2014

Nose: Very grainy with a spirit nip. Sharp citrus, light dusty barley, brittle honey and grainy oak follow. Lightly leafy and herbal with hints of baked fruit and tobacco. Water emphasises the citrus and brings out a perfumed note.  

Palate: Opens with some soft vanilla ice cream and barley. Succulent and juicy with a touch of apricot and some lightly tannic oak notes. Water unfortunately turns it into sugar water!  

Finish: Quite hot, gritty and tannic. Water again makes it rather sugary.  

Conclusion: Dilution does it no favours!
