Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Distillery Bottling
A 15 year old distillery bottling of Bruichladdich from the 1990s, the years before they reopened in their current guise under the watchful eye of Murray McDavid. This is an interesting tall bottle with a definite maritime air to the design.

Tasting Notes:
Tasting Notes by Billy A

Nose: Candle wax, floral touches (both honeysuckle freshness and more fragrant petals), sweet apple, vanilla cream and a bit of tropical fruit.

Palate: Very soft to start, with darker and heavier flavours developing on the palate - sharp woody spice (clove and cinnamon), dark wood bitterness, wood resin and charcoal, with a gentle syrup sweetness taking the edge off.

Finish: Fruity dark chocolate, apple skins, lingering woody spice with hints of the flowers from the nose.

Comment: From such a delicate nose I didn't expect quite the attack that the palate displays, but it works well without becoming unbalanced. A definite game of two halves.
