Last time I visited Islay I’ve been to Bruichladdich (An Turas Mor, Laddie Classic Edition 1). There my eyes were attracted by sherry butt of peated whisky for self-filling. There was no choice, I just had to fill a bottle for yourself.

C: amber;

N: just in the bottle a beautiful combination of peat and sherry, looks promising, after pouring into a glass, it becomes quite perfumy with subdued high strength of alcohol, I mean I feel its power, but not in irritating way, I hope you know what I am thinking of, tons of peat are clear here, smoke, burnt wood, wet ground, moist chalk, grilled meat, in general it is quite meaty, smoked fish: flounder, mackerel, grilled oysters, figs, raisins, chocolate with raisins, rum, cocoa, leather upholstery, generally delight in the nostrils, smell is constantly growing; a few drops of water enhances the aroma, more sweet notes comes to the voice, like caramel, vanilla, I also have a watermelon and melon, some mineral and metal accents emerge too;

T: uuuuhhhaaa, I fell the power, peat alternating with sherry, quite a lot of fruits: oranges, tangerines, apricots, peaches, then raisins, figs, dates, black chocolate, again grilled oysters, grilled fish, peated barley; after adding a few drops of water, even more fruits, quite clear plums, cherries, hard candies, Haribo jellies, white chocolate, coconut, here I also sense many layers and constant changes;

F: very long with remnants of peat or just peated barley, fruits, chocolate and figs.

Score: 93.

I have to admit that I enjoyed Bruichladdich Port Charlotte Valinch Cask Exploration 05 Bogha – Drochaide very much. I like this combination of peat and sherry. You can see that sometimes just 10 years is enough to get whisky making a great pleasure. One dram can be enjoyed for a long time, and there is room to add a few drops of water. It is a pity that I only have one bottle 😉
