Scott's Selection (distilled at Bruichladdich) 14 year old 1990 Vintage, 58.1%

Price: $110 Issue: Winter 2005 Reviewer: John Hansell

An excellent example of a younger Bruichladdich, and an interesting contrast to the Duncan Taylor expression reviewed above. Appetizing and very clean with a creamy texture. Honey and vanilla notes accentuate a fresh maltiness, with underlying marshmallow, grass and hay. The whisky finishes nicely rounded, pleasingly dry and salty, with a hint of seaweed. A great aperitif.
