Nose: You are welcomed by notes of honeyed mints, rosemary & thyme, soft marzipan and lemon zest, all very subtle and at one with each other. As the spirit warms others emerge, soft nougat, toffee and warm charred oak, toasted hazelnuts and little hints of fresh coconut.
Taste: As I write this, all the flavours have merged and are as one. Its pure zesty fragrance lifts the senses and the skill of the farmers, coopers and distillers are encapsulated both in my mind and memory of 10 years ago. It’s a beautiful pure spirit emerging for the first time into a much changed and happier home.
Finish: We the crew of Bruichladdich 2011 are proud to introduce you to our first born. This spirit reflects the dedication and hopes of all our staff, the dedication to traditional ways has paid off, this is the proof. Our spirit will find its way through life, a pleasant journey and you can be part of it as you follow this Pilgrim’s progress.
