From the main of Tullibardine Farms comes Bruichladdich's Organic. A totally organically produced single malt. Packaged in craft presentation; no caramel, no chill filtration and 46% this is about 7 year old spirit from the revamped Islay Distillery. Don't let the low mark fool you, this is an experience not to be missed, i find this a very unique malt, its just a shame about the finish.
Nose: Briny, maritime, soy-ish salt kind of marmite (or vegemite) sort of salt, vegetal, strong presence of celery, some fennel, seaweed, barley sugar and pickled lemon. With water much sweeter, barley sugar comes through much more, other elements still there though
Pallet: slightly oily very smooth, pepper, barley sugar sweets, pickled lemon again and some melon as well. Little bit of nuttiness as well With water much more subtle a touch of cardamom?, no real elements stand out but a nice band of salt forms across the middle of your tongue.
Finish: its pretty much gone as soon as you swallow so hold it in the mouth for a few seconds, it leaves with a little tingle. With water much the same, it’s still the weak link of the whisky.
Mark – neat 7.5, with water 8.0
I like this whisky its something different, really different when you consider its from Islay, nice and light, really good during a hot summer. I do recommend it even though it isn't amazing whisky get a bottle because its really interesting.
