    Color: Copper.

    Nose: Starting with the ‘Signature’ Bruichladdich peated ‘baby vomit’ notes, no doubt here. Sweet, sort of condensed milk stuff, heavy tobacco notes, smoke, peat, and leather with some red berry marmalade. Quite winey but in a good way, those tannins are running wild. Powerful stuff. What a nose! With water the red fruits are more emphasized.

    Palate: At full cask strength a whopping 63,4% the entry is powerful.With an avalanche of burnt sugar, Crème Brule crust, heaps of bonfire smoke, Ash,Peat embers and the red fruit. A bit of saltiness comes on the 2nd wave, then a few new waves of bonfire smoke. The sherry and the peat interplay is elegant and in perfect harmony, each complementing the other on a different level.

    Finish : Very long, bitter sweet with wine notes, and ash and smoke going on and on and on and on…..

    Bottom line:

    Jorn asked me to honestly write my impressions, and this is what i am doing. It’s genuinely awesome. Peat and Sherry, Sherry and Peat. When a whisky is well done it can be incredible, and when they do not connect, it’s a disaster. Here, I’m glad to say, they just connect in a perfect way. They coexist, without overshadowing the other, and they are just integrated wonderfully. So, what do i think? This is a cracking dram. A young, peated PC, with a fresh sherry cask. The sky is the limit. at 9 years of age, it’s bottled just in time. Only a few bottles were available for sale, and as far as i understand all are sold. But, if you can put your hands on a bottle, don’t think twice. Get one.

    I feel really blessed for having one
