Bruichladdich 20 Year Old Tasting Notes

Tasting notes by Jim McEwan MBE

Colour: Harvest gold.

Nose: Classic Islay without the smoke which allows the barley/oak notes to shine and highlights that brilliant Atlantic freshness. Hints of ripe Guava & melon work in harmony with the crispness of the malt & the oak which brings that mellow soft sweetness. It’s an irresistible combination, almost like an Atlantic rainbow of aromatics in harmony with the Island & its unique location.

Palate: Smooth Mellow and in prime condition. Wow!! Its so clean and flavourful. The texture is amazing giving the taste buds a spiritual experience like no other. The sweetness of the malt sugars is held beautifully in a cradle of spicy oak from the Bourbon cask. The fruitiness is down to slow distillation and long fermentation, and the fresh vibrant mouthfeel due to its maturing on the Atlantic Coast. The main prize here goes to the Distillery team who truly understand the art of distillation.

About this Dramfool Heritage release

The 55th Dramfool release crowned a year of remarkable bottlings with a 20 year old Bruichladdich distilled in 2002, just one year after the re-opening of the distillery we all have come to love so much. Following on from our sister 20 year old Port Charlotte’s earlier this year what more can we say but we are delighted to share these all with you.

Fully matured in first fill bourbon barrel, it has worked some magic over the decades. Thanks to Bruichladdich’s policy of filling casks at a higher than industry norm of 63.5% it has still retained a high strength of 59.0%!

A powerhouse whisky from the, then, newly reinstated team of Bruichladdich
