A 1988 Bruichladdich single malt, from the distillery's Rare Casks series, The Untouchable has been matured for three decades in a combination of refill bourbon casks and refill squat hogsheads. Floral aromas of dried hay, buttercups, primroses and coconut oil burst through the nose, followed by vanilla fudge, porridge with golden syrup, sweet citrus, sherbet, apricot and caramel. The palate initially offers notes of coconut, pink grapefruit, granola, malt and toast, slowly developing oak spice, pipe tobacco and fudge, with ripe pineapple, mango and mint building towards the finish.
