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.
