Bruichladdich (Lochindaal) 15 Year Old Tasting Notes
Official tasting notes
Fading embers, wet stones and brioche.
Colour: Natural colour, bright gold. Thick and oily in the glass with slow legs.
Nose: The scent of Islay. Family campfires on the cliffs overlooking the ocean as smoke fades into the salty air. Oyster shells and lemon wedges sat on granite. Malt and oak towards the back.
Palate: Medium to full mouthfeel. Earthy peat smoke, coastal salinity, malt, and hint of barbequed bacon rashers. Vanilla pastries bring a little sweetness, and a refreshing lemon citrus provides a counterbalance. Alcohol is well integrated, particularly at this high ABV.
Finish: Long finish. Smoke and lemon fade through apples to wood spice.
Overall: Everything you want a good Islay to be - full of that typical smokey coastal character, but balanced, poised and elegant.
About this Lady of The Glen whisky
Bruichladdich is famed for producing a dry smoky whisky with floral hints. This single cask is from a rare spirit run which is heavily peated and called Lochindaal. Fully matured in a first-fill bourbon barrel adding sweetness.
This gem from Lady of The Glen is a modern rarity from this iconic distillery. Rumour has it that only 250 casks of Lochindaal were distilled between 2007 and 2009 making this one of the oldest casks bottled. Fully matured in a fresh bourbon barrel and peating level of 50ppm to sit in-between the core release Port Charlotte and Octomore levels.
