Bruichladdich Rocks Islay Single Malt Scotch 2007
Color: Tea rose/ wild raspberry. Body: Light, bright and full of the joys! A vibrant spirit brimming with the unique flavors of the Hebrides. Nose: It has an exhilarating bouquet, opening with soft red grapes, red currant jelly, pomegranate and red apple all encases in an envelope of syrup, sweet malted barley and brown sugar vanilla. It's snappy and sweet, zipping along the crest of a wave migrating from Islay to France but always returning to the homeland. Palate: It jumps right out of the glass anxious to please. Lots of Celtic fire and spirit. The wine flavors wait patiently while the malt and oak display their charms - then given time they emerge bringing red cherry, strawberry and spiciness. It has a yogurt like texture, really creamy yet still retains a smappy coastal crispness. Finish: It's a malt on a mission. Does not hang around, quick as a flash, it's gone leaving you wondering, should I have bought an extra bottle?
External Reviews for Bruichladdich Rocks Islay Single Malt Scotch
Tea rose, wild raspberry in color. Light-bodied with an exhilarating bouquet. Opens with soft red fruit encased in an envelope of syrup and brown sugar vanilla. Red fruit and spices on the palate with a creamy yogurt like texture. Outrageously drinkable. Refined in French Grenache casks which gives this whisky its unique red fruit notes.
Designed by master distiller Jim McEwan who has selected superb quality casks from various ages and further refines them in Frech Grenache casks. Tea rose and wild raspberry in color followed by grapey nose with pomegranate notes. A rich malt and vanilla palate is followed by a berry spicyness.
\ The inviting bouquet offers aromas of fruitcake, banana nut bread, sweet malt, crispy pork rind, sweet oak, vanilla, red grapes and blackberry jam. Entry is sweet and grainy; at midpalate the taste profile suddenly bursts with red fruit presence and oaky vanilla. Finishes clean as a whistle, chewy and concentrated.\
