    Nose: pure bruichladdich DNA. Fresh mushroom, moist wood, and a good dose of spray. No doubts, we are in a Bruichladdich warehouse. Behind a still noticeable dose of alcohol, there are notes of camphor, as well as melon and peach. There is also a herbaceous side with freshly cut grass and hay.

    Palate: powerful and fairly alcoholic attack. We find the notes of mushrooms and damp wood but the fruits are struggling to find a place. The finish is herbaceous and quite bitter. Let's see with a little water ... The water does not bring much, the bitterness is even more pronounced. The finish is spicy, peppery and slightly salty.

    Conclusion: for me a slightly unbalanced malt. The nose is pleasant and we find Bruichladdich's DNA. On the other hand I find the alcohol too present and the addition of water only reinforces the bitter notes which I do not appreciate too much.
