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.

Color
Yellow gold
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?)."

Remember it\'s maturity that makes whisky great! That\'s why I Love The Glenrothes! Signature Picture

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.
