Tasting Notes

  • Producer's Notes

    Character: Round and well balanced, it is tranquillity in a glass. The texture is warm and delectable, captivating the taste buds with the richness of its flavours. Paradisal.

    Colour: Soleo sunshine

    Nose: Stunning opening on notes of sultanas dusted with dark chocolate powder and this develops further as the Spanish influence takes centre stage bringing sunshine and life to the party with a fruit tapas of prune, dates, dark raisins and black cherries dipped in marmalade. PX is performing like a Spanish dancer, full of pride and passion, confident as the rising aromatics dazzle the senses.

    Palate: Slowly the freshness of an Islay breeze arrives and mingles with the dark fruits creating air pockets that allow you to experience an incredible coming together of cultures. The citrus zestiness of Islay’s storm-lashed moorland character invites the Spanish party onto a new stage and it becomes an olfactory orchestration which opens the curtain for the softer green fruits of distillation. The coconut-vanilla toffee flavours of Kentucky plus the crisp sweetness of Scottish barley together arouse the soul and calm the fears. Three nations given time together have provided a spirit that leaves no single malt desires unfulfilled.

    Finish: After twenty-one years in two different oaks, the mellowness of the spirit is spectacular. It’s a classic old style Bruichladdich whisky: handmade, Islay matured and in a wonderful twist the sherry emerges leaving you with that feeling of having experienced something unforgettable and rare.

    Mood: A whisky for when the air is redolent of old leather, cuban tobacco and cedar wood.
