    Bruichladdich 12 yo 2002/2015 (64.1%, Rest & Be Thankful, bourbon, cask #588, 233 bottles) Four stars and a half A very high strength, but remember Bruichladdich rather fill at 70% vol. instead of the usual 63 or 63.5%. Colour: straw. Nose: first question, first answer, is there any peat? Yes, but just a little, that works just like pepper on a steak. Other than that, it’s rather less blocked than I had thought, and the trademark melons and white peaches do come through despite the 64% vol. Quite some vanilla as well – but let’s not push our luck. With water: a little sea air indeed, some grass, a little porridge, and rather more grapefruits instead of melons. Very fresh Bruichladdich, very lovely. A little clay as well. Mouth (neat): it’s very strong, do not quaff more than half a drop just like that, that’ll just burn your throat. Indeed, that’s what I just did ;-). Cough, cough… With water: excellently zesty and lemony, with a solid mineral and vanilla-ed foundation. It’s kind of fizzy as well (Schweppes, quinine) and Id even swear I can find ‘ideas’ of gin and juniper. Really very straight, and excellent. Finish: long, zesty. Lemon and chalk plus grass and grapefruits. Sancerre-y! Comments: impressive whisky, a bit in the style of the latest official 10 (first batches) but with more punch. SGP:551 - 89 points.Whiskyfun - Serge Valentinhttp://www.whiskyfun.com/2015/Time-Warp-tasting-today-Bruichladdich.html
