Links Series

And any other Bruichladdichs you may have...

Date and Time


Friday 20th November 7:00pm GMT - Sunday 22nd November


Start time - 7:00pm GMT

About...
For those of you who do not know what these are about, they run for generally 12+ hours and we all sit down (at various times) to taste a range of whiskies and share our notes and comments on the forum. Have a look in the Live Tasting forum for past events.

They are a great way to meet people on the forum, chat about your experiences and learn something new about the whiskies you have, and we all end up having a good time.

Please feel free to join in and post any comments or tasting notes you have. Tasting notes can be added using the Tasting Note tab on the postings page. (Note, the Age field on the tasting must be a number such as 7,9,10,18)

We look forward to seeing you on Friday evening...

I opened my only 'Laddie (3D3), even though I knew my tastebuds were in poor shape. I expect I'll write it up and post notes Sunday.

I am going to try my Laddies tonight but might have to stop if the baby won't sleep. First up is Rocks

Bruichladdich Rocks

Bruichladdich
-
A fair amount of salt, hints of peat and strawberry jam. Also some citrus. Hint of wood smoke.
Salt and a hint of the strawberry jam. Salted lemon?
Very salty. slight banana.
Was there by any chance multiple editions of the "Rocks" as this tastes nothing like all the reviews I have read.

Next up

Bruichladdich Links 14yo St Andrews

Bruichladdich
Links
cooked red fruits. rather sweet smelling. raisins. Maybe Raisin Bran cereal? almost no salt or peat.
Spicy cherry, rhubarb and the bran returns. Some salt shows up but no peat. Some cedar and cinnamon.
Medium length and the salt really shows up. Salted melon and strawberries.
Very nice. I could enjoy a full bottle of this. Makes me wonder how the other Links compare?

Salted peat, oatmeal, and some citrus.

Oh sh....! I forgot all about this! I have a few Laddies to taste (10yo, 3D3, '89 Cask Strength and maybe a couple more) but it won't be until after I get off work tonight at 11pm. I'm also whipping up a batch of my pasta an garlic sausage spaghetti sauce tonight for the crew so hopefully I can tame my tastebuds before I come home.

Expression - Bruichladdich 21
Year -
Age - 21yo
ABV - 46%
Cask / Bottle No. - Oloroso /
Colour - Deep Amber going on Mahogany
Nose - straight away you get the typical sherry notes...... a very relaxed Christmas Cake , dried fruits , spices , Dark Chocolate . When i first tried this it took a while to open up , now it's just full on straight away !
Palate - A perfect oloroso palate , no sherry nasties lurking just a dry , oloroso taste and the usual sherry "Christmas Cake" tastes , is that a slight hint of the laddie Green fruits ? .
Finish - Long , Dry , very warming , Apricot Marmalade and Marzipan . Also Orange .
Comments - Very oily in the glass , not a sign of anything sulphury , extremely well balanced . This one doesn't seem to have went down well with the general whisky buying public which is a shame as it's a very good sherried Laddie .

Ok the last one of the night for me , Technically not a Laddie but it did come of their stills , a very special malt to me.......

Expression - Port Charlotte 4yo
Year - 2001
Age - 4yo
ABV - 61.4%
Cask / Bottle No. - Bloodtub R23 / 23 of 39
Colour - Topaz
Nose - The maltiness strikes you first , a strong dryness (the sherry) , a lingering peatiness almost earthy , there's also a slight dark fruitiness to it .
Palate - Again very dry , very malty , the peat eventually comes flooding in . A peaty smokiness covers the palate after a while......
Finish - Long , dry , peaty , bitter dark chocolate , goes on and on and on.......
Comments - Distilled 12th June 2001 , Bottled 25th November 2005 . Ok so this is my first Baby , but i still think it's the best PC i've tasted to date , Jim (Murray) gave it a 96 in his Whisky Bible , i think it deserved at least 97 LOL! It is an incredible Malt and i'm glad i bought the bloodtub back in 2001 !

Ganga and Mikey, it is good to see you two on. I will hang around for a bit even though I am done with my Laddies. I think I might crack open my Caol Ila DE (has it made it to California yet, as I was surprised to see it here) and compare it to the Bruichladdich 15yo 2nd edition.

Sean, if you can believe it the whisky actually is tasting more interesting now. The minty characteristics didn't really show up that much if at all in previous experiences. Cinnabon - the sweetness of the sugars, cinnamon and the roll dough!

oops it is a 5yo...

Bruichladdich 5yo (46%, Original Bottling, "First Born", bottle 43/340, Cask # 522, finished in Ridge Zinfandel wine cask)

This was a bottle of Bruichladdich that was made for K&L Wine store in Redwood City... It was all new distillation and was the first release in the US (maybe the world) of a Bruichladdich all made by Jim...

On first nose this slightly orange-amber colored whisky comes off with notes of dried fruits, and almost like orange candied gels. It really does not smell spirity at all for a 5yo.

Having a sample there is a touch of spirity that plays across the palate, followed quickly by a touch of malt followed very quickly by a large amount of fruit cocktail that sits around for a while and then slowly dissipates as the malty sweetness comes back... nice little first taste.

Working it over more the second time... the nose is more intense. Same profile just everything pumped up. Holding the whisky on the palate a little more seems to bring out a little bit of peat, more malt, and the spice of the wine seems to be coming in on the mid palate. Some dark fruit and pepper (maybe what I am mistaking as some peat)...

The dram finishes pretty fast with a medium to short finish and sit about mid to front palate (about what you would expect for the age). There is just a touch of the malt and wine in the very end... all very light.

Interesting dram in most respects. I have enjoyed the first bottle and seeing it change over time as the wine notes get more integrated... I have one more sealed bottle for a later time.
