Re: BRUICHLADDICH LIVE TASTING - November 20-22, 2009
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 !
