Colour – An Islay sunrise.
Aroma – Gorgeous.. Classic old school Bruichladdich.. Coconut, warm muscovado sugar, vanilla custard, grapefruit, mango, baked ginger biscuits, marzipan. Afer a while notes of date syrup and sultana.
Taste – Soft and gentle texture, a delicate dram. Crème brulee, buttercup and orange zest. Gently warming the palate, it opens to reveal a touch of leather, toasted oak and praline. Sweet citrus and mango come through later.
Finish – So gentle but a lovely finish of warm scones and dried fruit, candied orange, lemon peel and apricot jam.
Character – There is a quiet feel to this dram, delicate yet assured of its identity.
