Description

A very early releases of a well aged from from Bruichladdich, as this was bottled in 2008.  So the distillate comes from the old Invergordon Distillers days.

And what a cask to have matured this spirit in. Jurancon: Petit mensang, sweet, lush and exotic.

From Connosr, “A soft, gentle arrival slowly revealing all the different layers. The thick, oily substance carries a wide range of flavors and these are constantly dancing around on the tongue. The first 20 seconds are quite different from the finishing experience, it keeps evolving and transforming. Along the trip I get strawberries ‘n cream, brown sugar, eucalyptus, bergamot and chamomile tea, bitter grapefruit, acidic white wine, anis and eventually mocha and milkchocolate. I’d swear this was peated by a small extent, but that taste could come from the peaty water as well.

Finish: Long and very oily with fatty smoked meat, sweet waxy candy, grains, bitter coffee, grappa and charred oak.

Big beefy and complex Laddie!”

From the distillery, “Here we have again fused American oak with the more flavoursome French oak – but this time the casks contained the rare, sweet wine from Jurancon in the Pyrennean foothills of south-west France. Together they make another extraordinarily mellow and profound bottling”.
