Bruichladdich 10yr Malt Scotch Tasting Notes

Nose

Light honey and citrus burst through with hints of tobacco and creamy fudge. It has vitality and backbone. 10 years of maturation in excellent American and European oak has developed this fantastic spirit into a real thoroughbred. Clean notes of sweet oak, praline, vanilla and milk chocolate rise up together and then subside to allow the marine citrus notes to come to the fore, the influence of coastal maturation is clear to see. Like waves break- ing on the shore they too recede to reveal the delicate floral notes of elderflower and gorse.

Finish

The finish long and floral. Alongside the long honeysuckle and rose notes lemon zest fades and allows delicate, exotic fruits like pineapple and melon to the fore. They too pass and leave just a hint of smoke from the charred American barrels.
