    Aroma: flower-vanilla, flowers look like blooming lilac, dried grain in the sun, minerality, something like lime, freshness, as if you are on a summer morning in a meadow, citrus basket (grapefruit, orange, lemon), an oak just a hint, burnt piece of wood, seaweed.
    Taste: malt sweetness, grassiness, ginger, sweet yellow apples and pears, banana, hint of vanilla, shortbread.
    Finish: gorchuschee, grapefruit zest, lemonade, some spices (cloves, ginger), overripe apples and pears.
    Rating: 86-87
    Bottom line: the aroma of course bypasses all the other components in this young molt, but everything is pretty solid and tasty. The assessment may be a bit overpriced due to my love for Brucladdy, namely, his style, such floral-vanilla-fresh-sea! But often the hand reaches for such a whisky

    The fruity from the smell does not really come back in the taste. Sturdy whisky but not really pronounced flavorful.
    • Nose
      Fruity, tropical fruit, vanilla. Also nail polish now ?! Some floral, rather strong alcohol in the smell.
    • Taste
      Strong, stimulating, wood tones, creamy structure, some honey.
    • Finish
      Stinging, medium, wood tones, sweet, honey, also spicy.

    no extraordinary side, but varied mixed scents and always an intense woody side!
    • Nose
      woody, no wood chips, little peppery, musk, superficial fruits, rather candied
    • Taste
      the bitter almond core, always this sensation of half-cooked candied fruit, leaving the palate waiting for a unique taste that does not come, good, it looks like a good blend, without quality first, where everything is mixed!
    • Finish
      woody sweetness that lasts quite a long time, some fragrances Bunna 12 quite characteristic!

    This was an interesting one. It tasted quite creamy and light, perhaps a little less sweet than the standard Bruichladdich.
