Bruichladdich Infinity Bottling Note
A Bruichladdich from several vintages, created to show the complexity of the whisky. This is the third edition of Infinity, in general release, matured in refill sherry and tempranillo casks, with peating levels of 20PPM.
Terrific, complex, subtle
From an experienced Islay malt drinker
Peaty on the finish...
I would not claim to be an expert on malt whisky, but have tasted many, and for me personally, this is the best I have ever come across. Loads of flavour, but absolutely smooth and a long delicious peaty finish.
but slightly lacking in the intensity of that Bruichladdich "zing" in the middle. The wine is also there at the back (well - on the palate to be precise). It does blend in more peat than usual for a Bruichladdich (octomore excepted of course!). I just cat help thinking that the "Black Art" I tasted last week is more subtle and complex. Mind you - this one is nearly half the price.... you pays your money and all that....personally I love all the Bruichladdichs I've tasted!
Wonderfully balanced, a full range of flavours, elegant and bold, with a wonderful weight in the mouth. These guys know what they're doing all right.
This is a nicely balanced mixture of subtle flavours, peat and sweetness, and all in all a terrific single malt by one of the most outward-looking distillers.
Can't go wrong
The Infinity 3.0 was a good whisky, but the 3.1 really was a significant improvement, at least to my palate. Less Port presence, more smoke, and more balance. I can just pour a small glass and smell it for a long time before tasting it. Tasting is complex and smooth, just want to let it sit on your tongue and disappear.
For $80 a bottle, truly a bargain, would much rather have this than any 20+ year aged bottle that I have tried.
