Whisky Reviews for Bruichladdich Rocks

- Peppery pie with little wood, fruit or other uplifting cheer. Bland whisky that makes no choice what it wants to be. The Glendronach Peated, which I can't praise either, has the same identity crisis as this one. Neither meat nor fish, sorry. I still have 3 cl, I will check again in a while whether it is my mood or the whisky.
- The PLV of this bottle is just ok. Just as the whisky is no longer optimally designed. Mild smoke garnished with wine theme. Positive impression. But not anymore.
It starts with a peat nose but the grape or wine mixes in with the action. I can't take this apart very well. I always have a hard time with wine stories.
A campfire on the bank next to the distillery. Ashy sweetness determines the main course without being able to say exactly what constitutes the salty sweetness. Additionally lemon peel. So quite exciting. I think the palate is better made than the nose. But I'm not a smoker either;)
A middle finish with bitter drying notes, it ends without asking you to pour again. Solid wine standard. For me, a whisky that has been on the shelf for a long time.
- Tasted this one blindly, the question was to determine the cask behind the whisky. Never would have guessed the banyuls cask.
bit meaty, with sweet red wine. Delicious strawberries and raspberries. Additional a whiff of peat, meaty as in smoked thin layered pork meat for on sandwiches.
meaty, red fruits, bit salty. delicate smoke and peat.
ash, sweet strawberries, less meat. quality dram.
- A neat Bruichladdich without age. Maritime and discreetly peaty Laddie exudes a great sea flavor. A delicious all-day dram.
Earthy and with a fine peat note starts the nose. Discreet muff mixes with citrus fruits and fine vanilla or sweetness. Slowly, orange and apricots penetrate the musty peat, a pinch of salt spreads in the nose before the alcohol becomes more intense and stinging.
Spicy oak flavors blend with salt and a hint of peat. Salty and slightly peppery pungency develops and heats the palate, bitter woody aromas and a subtle grapefruit aroma break from the very dominant salt and sea notes. Citrus fruits and harsh oak tones emerge.
Salt, peat and tart wood aromas dominate the first impression of the departure. The salty sharpness still exudes a great aroma of sea and foaming gisch. Slowly, the heat fades and leaves a tart nut aroma.
