    Can't find a bottle code anywhere.  Anybody have a suggestion? I don't want to add a new bottle just yet due to this.

    • Nose
      Lemon peel, grape juice, satsumas, mint syrup, bleach.
    • Taste
      A bit briny, sea air. Quite maritime in nature, however, the wine finish seems to have "candy-coated"
    • Finish
      A little bit of peat in this. Brine comes out with a bit of earthy tobacco.

    "Bruichladdich Rocks was introduced to the range in 2007, and is designed to be taken with ice (`Rocks`, geddit?)."

  8. mmaclean scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    Aged in bourbon and Grenache red wine casks. Youthful, with green grape

    fruit and a syrupy sweetness. A straightforward whisky. Not overly

    complex or long on the finish, nor was it intended to be. As its name

    suggests, it was made to be consumed on the rocks. Similar to the 2011, you may add a couple drops of water to this one.

  9. gralson scored this whisky 77 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
       fresh, lemon, lightly peat and very lightly smoke, later a little bit spicy from spices, a bit of sweets butter-cream, not very alcoholic
    • Taste
      little gentian and dry, "low", lightly peat, later citruses, large sweetness in the background
    • Finish
      finish long enough, bitterly sour, at the end a little of gentian
