Bruichladdich 30 Year Old Tasting Notes
Nose: Focussed with hints of espresso, dark chocolate truffles and caramel. Then toasted notes with linseed and extra virgin olive oil.
Palate: Delicate texture, lightly creamy vanilla broadens into panna cotta, chocolate truffles and espresso. Then crisp toasted notes usher in malty, digestive biscuits and linseed. A finale of orange marmalade on buttery, well-done toast.
Finish: Juicy fruit and balancing dryness, with a medley of figs, light oak, toasted notes, espresso, raisins and chocolate truffles.
Nose: More pronounced fruit, then oak. Linseed and extra virgin olive oil take over, with lemon tart, brioche and digestive biscuits at the edges.
Palate: More integrated, with juicy citrus top notes and pronounced malty, digestive biscuits on a platform of dry oak, garnished by sweetness and richness.
Finish: Gradually opens up with a balance of fruit and oak, with malt notes and dryness growing.
Comment: A perfect digestif dram. But, it doesn’t need to be a sequel to a good dinner, it’s an event in itself
