Wine Enthusiast: "Although the “Botanist” name might suggest a floral gin, instead the flavor profile veers toward herbs and spices. There’s a subtle, herbal scent, with anise flavors up front, backed by coriander seed and cassia bark on the spicy finish. Made by Bruichladdich Distillery, which is renowned for its Scotch, on a pot still named Ugly Betty. Sold in an attractive, square-shouldered, gift-worthy bottle.

We've waited almost 2 decades for this expression from the special distillery on Lochindaal. The beautiful Classic Laddie is all grown up now and their core range officiall expended. In conjunction with the release of a new sexy bottle shape, the famed "unpeated" Islay distillery is offering this exceptional, authentic expression of its most mature modern stock at an altogether reasonable price. Designed to capture the house style in its purest form, the 18 year is almost entirely made up of first fill ex-bourbon with just a handful of specially selected...

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "This Islay single malt was finished in Sherry casks, delivering a ruddy hue and brisk, smoky scent with a hint of sea air salinity. Peat and iodine lead the palate, evolving into mouthwatering olive brine, kalamata olive and unsweetened chocolate, finishing long and dry with hints of ash, clove and black pepper. A splash of water integrates the cocoa and peat tones. (KN)" (12/2019) 92 points Whisky Advocate: "Formerly known as Darkest, this expression was given a secondary maturation for 3 years in oloroso sherry casks. The ...

An enigmatic alchemy which relies on nature, craftmanship and the gentle passing of time. What happens inside each cask, under the darkness of the warehouse remains a mystery. Black Art 11 continues that elusive mastery. Only Head Distiller Adam Hannett knows what has gone into crafting the precious 24-year-old single malt. The barley and cask type remain a mystery, with the final recipe undisclosed.

2007 Bruichladdich 15 Year Old "Dramfool's Jim McEwan Signature Collection 7.1" First Fill Sauternes Barrique Cask #R08/153-5 Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml) (Previously $500) (Previously $500)

Jim McEwan: "Aromas - It’s an irresistible mellow mature aroma. The sweet fruity aromatics from the Sauternes-soaked staves has created a halo that embraces the sweetness of malted barley. Add the natural aromatics of an Island in the Atlantic Ocean where the casks lay sleeping for 15 years at the water’s edge. The crispness of the toasted barley in harmony with the oak work beautifully ensuring that the wine influence is not dominating the natural aromas allowing the Islay character to shine through beautifully. Palate - Absolutely amazing! The sweetnes...

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Comforting caramel and toffee aromas lead into a smoky and spicy palate. Caramel, vanilla and espresso give way to dark chocolate and black pepper, finishing with a tinge of burnt orange peel. (KN)" (12/2021) 91 points Whisky Advocate: "This replaces the 17 year old in the standard Bowmore portfolio. (The 17 year old will now be Duty Free Only.) The difference is significant. This one is more sherried than the 17 year old, and it wears the sherry well. I know that many of you, like myself, adore the 17 year old. Indeed, I fe...

Jim McEwan: "Aromas - Opens on a stormy November day walking on the West Coast with gigantic waves blowing in from the West, then the sweetness of the barley sugar comes forward in harmony with the spicy sweetness from the bourbon soaked staves on its 1st fill.

Jim McEwan: "Colour - Summer Barley Fields Aromas & Taste - It detonates on a combination of smoke, storm lashed seaweed and allspice, followed by the sweetness of charred oak sugars and the sweet spicy residue from the bourbon that first filled the cask. Its a unique olfactory experience, lots going on with the oak holding the big aromas in check and allowing the quality of distillate to shine through which also highlights the skills of the team who work away quietly without computers. They are seldom mentioned because that’s not the Islay way, let ...

91 points Whisky Advocate: "Distilled from Scottish barley, this is the first permanent age-statement Port Charlotte bottling. First and second-fill American oak and French wine casks were used for aging. Rock pools, lemon juice, caramel, but little overt peat on the nose. The palate boasts big orchard fruit notes, smoky coconut, and brine. Again, the peat is quite muted. Long and spicy in the drying, peaty finish. (GS, Fall 2018)" K&L Notes: The first permanent release of Port Charlotte 10 Year. Apparently, they've got enough whisky to keep this going ...

Jim McEwan: "Colour - Harvest Gold Body- Mellow & Mature Aromas - Beautiful oak, peat & hints of Atlantic swells leading onto Coastal Flora & Fauna. It has a true Hebridean DNA that works beautifully with the spice from the Bourbon that first filled the cask. Little hints of Jupiter & Pine drift by on a classic Islay marine overture all held in the warmth of a peat fire. Palate - The texture of the spirit is beautiful, viscous, mellow and brimming with all that makes Islay malts so unique. Flavours of melon & pear emerge held beautifully by the oak & ...

Whisky Advocate: "Bruichladdich describes this as a “multi-vintage cuvee” and only Scottish-grown barley is used in its distillation. Ozone, lemon juice, fresh-planed wood, and a hint of honey appear on the nose. The palate features toffee apples, cinnamon, ginger, salt, and oily oak. Pepper, sea salt, and relatively dry oak in the finish are balanced by toffee sweetness. (GS, Fall-2018)" K&L Notes: Light, clean, fresh Bruichladdich whisky at 100 proof, made from entirely Scottish barley. The new Classic Laddie drinks more like the old Rocks expression ...

Jim McEwan: "Colour - Primrose Yellow Aromas - Opens beautifully on a combination of Primrose, Myrtle, Lily, Marigold and mint. It’s like walking through the peat fires next to the Atlantic Ocean!

Jim McEwan: "Aromas - Opens on a beautiful combination of peat smoked barley with tantalising hints of lemon & honey then waves of heather in bloom drift by. Little notes of juniper and pine mingle beautifully with the spiciness of bourbon residue and sweetness of malt extract.
