    The PLV of this bottle just ok. Just as the whisky is no longer optimally designed. Mild smoke garnished with wine theme. Positive impression. But not anymore.
    • Nose
      83 83
      He starts with a peat nose but the grape or the wine mix in the action. I can not take that apart well. Do me always hard with wine stories.
    • Taste
      84 84
      A campfire on the shore next to the distillery. Ashy sweetness determines the main course without being able to say exactly what the salty sweetness is. In addition, lemon peel. So very exciting. I think the palate is better than the nose. But I am not a smoker;)
    • Finish
      81 81
      Middle ending with bitterly drying notes he sounds out without asking you to give again after. Solid wine standard. For me, a whisky that stands 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.
    • Nose
      86 86
      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.
    • Taste
      84 84
      meaty, red fruits, bit salty. delicate smoke and peat.
    • Finish
      83 83
      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.
    • Nose
      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.
    • Taste
      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.
    • Finish
      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.

  9. Segens scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    You get a dram which is worth its money and nose & taste are giving a shot on wine & peat if you are not very familiar with these influences. Not too complex but a good introduction in the "smoke" world. For me a nice try but also not much more! Nevertheless happy that I had him in the glass!
    • Nose
      peat & wine sweetness. Alcohol not perfectly implemented but all in all not too bad.
    • Taste
      honey & smoke and a bit of ash. A bit medical and the alcohol is now better implemented than in the nose.
    • Finish
      a bitter finish which is not destroying the dram but by far the worst part of it and therefore not remaining too positive in the mouth!
