The Single Cask Bruichladdich 2009 11 Years Old (The Water of Life, 61.3% ABV)
Nose: Macadamia, sea salt, malt, honey, cacao, light hay
Palate: An immediate rush of liquorice, lemon, key lime and fennel which took the tongue a few minutes to process before it leads on to green apple, pineapple, cinnamon and mint on second taste before it exits and leaves behind you salivating with malt powder and sencha rice tea. Full-bodied and decadent.
Finish: Dries off into malt, white pepper, coriander seeds
This expression is available by the dram at The Single Cask but bottles are sold out worldwide!
