Today I’ll be trying three Brookies H2H. All three are thus from the famous Bruichladdich distillery on the island of Islay. I’ll start off with the XVII, the regular 17 Year Old.
This one smells wonderfully soft, fresh and clean. Immensely fruity too. Caramel inundated with melon, pear and green appels, coating with some honey. There is even a little bit of banana to be found with a touch of coconut.. Wonderful nose!
On the palate this one is very creamy and the balance between the oaky notes (vanilla) and the fruity notes (and nuts) is simply breathtaking.
The finish is short and drying, bittersweet with a touch of salt at the death.
No two ways about it, this is a grand Bruichladdich (about 60 EUR).
