Bruichladdich – The Organic 2020

Bruichladdich – The Organic 2020

A wild youngster throwing elbows in the mosh pit – but also has an appreciation for ska.

  • Bruichladdich
  • 50 percent
  • Single Malt Scotch Whisky
  • Non chill filtered
  • No color added (I believe)
  • 8 year

Nose: Watermelon, banana, peach, pear, lime, over ripened melon, faint hint of cocoa, orange peel, green apple, butterscotch

Taste: Raisin, chocolate, smallest hint of tiramisu, banana, vanilla, cantaloupe

Quite a flamethrower when you first crack the bottle, but it simmers down over time as the air sorts out the temper. Its age forever locks away much smoothness, but it beams in character – suggesting that another 8 years in the cask might have maximized its potential. With a little water and patience however. it becomes quite the pleasant experience. With a complex bevy of notes to decipher on the front, and a contemplative finish that lingers.  Its simple presentation of lightness in color and no frills packaging underscores its brute confidence. 

Overall score:  6.75 out of 10
