Bruichladdich The Organic 2009 Mid Coul Farms

Single Malt — Islay, Scotland

4.5 out of 5 stars
Nose: Fresh green apple appears immediately with hints of lemon zest. Notes of strawberry and vanilla extract follow, almost masking a faint salty note, giving the impression of sea air. Melted butter, pastry notes and sandalwood can be found at the end. Palate: Whitw chocolate is almost the dominant sweet note followed by brown sugar and red berries, cherries almost. Very oily on the tongue with bitter notes appearing through the taste. The Tennessee barrel is very apparent in the vanilla notes. Finish: Faint iodine notes followed by the bitterness of oak and a very faint smoke.
