The Single Cask #77 Lochindaal 2009 11 Years Old Islay Single Malt Whisky 700ml
Lochindaal is a rarely seen whisky produced by Bruichladdich (there was once a distillery called Lochindaal on Islay ).
The new Lochindaal malt whisky (50ppm+) will be more heavily peated than the Port Charlotte, but less so than Octomore, the world’s most heavily peated whisky. The new malt will be named after one of Islay's lost distilleries which once operated only a few miles further south in Port Charlotte.
This rare single cask bottling will be a prized collection bottle for a true Bruichladdich & Islay Malt Whisky Fan.
Nose: Ash, dairy, camphor, bacon and sea salt and on second nosing, honey, malt, a trip to the farm and smoked fish
Palate: Top notes of tangy meyer lemons, burning drift wood, sweet peat, dry felled wood, meat. Upon a second tasting post acclimatising: green notes of fresh cut grass, jalapeno, walnuts. There seems to be a fulfilling flavor loop of dryness, constantly leaving the mouth salivating but fulfilled with savouriness of salted caramel, dark choc, barbecue meat, cinnamon and white pepper.
Finish: Lasting honey, peat, warm ash and menthol
