Interesting fact… Bruichladdich 21 Year Old Oloroso Cask Finish whisky spells its name whisky as it originates in Scotland. Had it been produced in America its name would be Bruichladdich 21 Year Old Oloroso Cask Finish whiskey, instead of whisky.
Nose: Thick, supple sherry. Dried fruits, barley. Juicy. Nutty.
Palate: Vanilla, caramel, fruit salad, exotic fruits too, sherry.
Finish: Dark, long, sherried.
In amongst the sherry, the fruit (passion fruit and lime) is a definite sherbet spritz. This one is sprightlier than the 17 year old. Complex and fascinating!
