Whisky Reviews for Bruichladdich 18-year-old 2nd Edition

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.20 points

  1. Lukas_Kiene scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    An unbelievable Bruichladdich. Just as complex and with intense aromas as the 1st Edition, the Jurancon wine finish gives it a slightly different characteristic. The age is noticeable, the barrels must have been impressively good. It's really very, very exciting and, like the 1st edition, surprisingly underrated.
