Bruichladdich 'Infinity' (55.5%, OB)

Brown.  Sherry sweet, hint of sherry.  Mint.  Lightly peated? Sea.  60%? Young.  Strong.  Very strong.  Finished strong.  Ouch!  Hint of tropical fruit.   A little bit nutty finish.  Salty.  Very nice and exceptional one.  Score: 95.  (I was quite surprise to know the answer.  I only gave it 88 last time.  But this one gained high score twice during the blind tasting.  Maybe I was too conservative last time. And I didn’t feel that peaty during the blind tasting?)

兩支重點:

Bruichladdich 15yo 2nd edition (46%, OB, Sauternes finish)

Jim always said the 15yo first edition is his favorite OB.  Maybe we should buy half dozen?  The second edition is sautern finish, Serge said it is from Chateau d’Yquem and is 50%, but I am not so sure.  Brown, very deep sweet.  Hint of plum.  Sweet at the end.  Quite Sautern finish.  Score: 84.  One point less then the WIP sample.
