Bruichladdich 15 Year Old Tasting Notes

Tasting notes by Jim McEwan MBE

Nose: Its an irresistible mellow mature aroma. The sweet fruity aromatics from the Sauterne soaked staves has created a halo that embraces the sweetness of malted barley. Add the natural aromatics of an Island in the Atlantic Ocean where the casks lay sleeping for 15 years at the waters edge. The crispness of the toasted barley in harmony with the oak work beautifully ensuring that the wine influence is not dominating the natural aromas allowing the Islay character to shine through beautifully.

Palate: Absolutely amazing! The sweetness of the barley, the sea air, the French oak and the Atlantic coast maturation for 15 years. Hand crafted by a team of Islanders who distil slowly without a computer in sight and their skill and dedication shines through like a Lighthouse on a storm battered Island - Islay! The French oak works superbly with the Islay character cradling the mellow French connection and the rest is history.

A truly beautiful spirit.
