Another rare Lochindaal expression released by The Single Cask; this one with slightly more meatiness and intensity. View the other bottle here.
Encountering a Lochindaal is about as special as finding a four-leaf clover. This is a rare label for a heavily peated style made at Bruichladdich, that many have not heard of. More smoky than Port Charlotte but slightly less smoky than Octomore expressions, it was created to replicate the style of the historic Lochindaal Distillery that closed in 1929.
Unfortunately, the Lochindaal label was discontinued to avoid consumer confusion over the multiplicity of Bruichladdich sub-labels. And what a shame because it exhibits such a lovely marriage of aromatic smoke, soft orchard fruits with a depth of oakiness.
The Lochindaal was only ever distilled twice - once in 2007 and again in 2009. This bottle is part of a limited stock of Lochindaal still available to consumers.
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 chocolate, barbecue meat, cinnamon and white pepper.
Finish: Lasting honey, peat, warm ash and menthol
