Bruichladdich 2002 Reviews
Tasting note by Billy Abbott (The Whisky Exchange)
Nose: Apricots and wobbly lemon tarts with cheesecake hints. Pie crust and a toffee glaze develop, followed by sultanas, apple sauce, poached pears and caramel wafers.
Palate: Soft and oily with stacks of fruit – mostly apple and pear, both fresh and stewed, as well as lemon and tropical hints: papaya and pineapple. Brown sugar and pastry notes develop, with Ryvita touches, Hobnob biscuits and golden-syrup-drizzled porridge.
Finish: Freshly cut apple and liquorice powder, fading to orange cream and porridgey grain.
Comment: New Bruichladdich has really come of age, combining the fresh and grassy notes from before its closure with a creamy, fruity and citrus-tinged character developed since its reopening.
