What they say

21 year old single malt Scotch whisky from the Bruichladdich distillery on Islay, bottled by Duncan Taylor. This is a single cask release from the Dimensions range, made to show off the multi-dimensional selection Duncan Taylor has to offer. The Bruichladdich cask was laid down in December 1992 and bottled in March 2014 with an outturn of 214 bottles.

What I say

An independently bottled Bruichladdich, distilled in 1992 and matured for 21 years before bottling by Duncan Taylor as part of their Dimensions series. Distilled 12/1992 and bottled 03/2014.

My tasting notes:

  • Appearance: Pale champagne gold  (3/20), medium-large tears, finer legs.
  • Nose: Closed, dry and sweet, dried apples, barley flour, neutral sweet, a little dusty and musty, citrus fresh, minty, icing sugar.
  • Taste: Mid sweet, quite neutral on the palate both spiti and cask, quiet almost, barley malt, barley sugars, hint of apples, dry with a touch of mint and eucalyptus.
  • Finish: Spirity, drying and a touch sweet.

Overall

An unusually quiet expression, very restrained, a touch minty which worries me of a slightly underactive 3rd fill+ cask perhaps?

Score 83/100

Don’t take my word for it:
