  1. LaddieNerd scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    A surprisingly complex whisky for 5 years.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Notes of peat and smoked ham with sweet hints of ripe fruit, apricots and hazelnuts.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Smoked bacon, honey, subtle lemon with beeswax, also here hazelnut, in the background some woody spice with liquorice and even a little chilli.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Medium-long finish, smoky honey with spicy notes. Bacon chip charges.

    5 years ? Really ? Slightly smoky and green fruit (in the unripe sense of the term), even citric. A little too dry on the palate.

  5. gunnie76 scored this whisky 77 points Expert Senior

    Peaty in nose and taste. A bit medicinal in the finish. Nice dram for it`s 5 years. Well done Bruichladdich.
