Bruichladdich – Single Cask Bottling 7 yo – Tasting Notes

Nose

Floral, sweet, fruit, citrus, light, fresh. In my mind I am thinking of sitting in a garden filled with flowers full in bloom, having a home made lemon lemonade, and a nice piece of lemon cheesecake. 
Palate
Fruity,vanilla, caramel, sweet, white grapes, and a lot of citrus…
Finish
Not a very long finish. It has something in it that reminds me of grape pits, the bitterness of it.
Score
It is a ‘springtime’ dram, it has that feel to it. But in the finish is something that gets me confused. The palate is fresh, sweet and fruity, but the finish has some dryness, metallic feel almost in it. Bit bitter… That is why this one gets a 5,5 out of 10 from me. I love a lot that comes out of this distillery, but I think the Madeira in this one gives it just something that I do not like sadly.

Details:
  • single cask bottling 7 yo
  • bottled at 46%
  • bourbon cask and madeira cask
  • distilled 2001
  • No picture available due to self made sample from a distillery bottling, and missing some more details now, bottle could not be traced sadly. Shopkeeper told us it was a matt bottle, so we think this one below should be the one with a little help of the internet, but not sure…
