Whisky Reviews for Bruichladdich 3D3 - Third Edition
16 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.45 points
- The 1st ever bottling from Bruihladdich to contain Octomore.
- olor: Pale gold
Nose: It’s a true laddie in nature when it comes to the fruitiness, but all this is layered below a nice peaty cover. It reminds me quite a bit the Octomore 2.1 nose. I like it.
Mouth : Ashe, Big Peat, but sweeter notes are abundant. You get a very delicious sort of “peaty” lollipop feeling, which is quite interesting. It’s very strong, and peppery.
Finish : Peppery, Ashy, quite long and enjoyable.
Summing it up :
While not Enormously complex, it’s very enjoyable and not as flat as can be expected. The sweet-peat-fruit mélange does the work. It’s a sort of in your face! Malt, I’d recommend it to peat lovers especially and those who like a very strong impact of coal, smoke, and ash in their face, nose and throat. It’s not an Octomore, or a supernova, but it’s darn peaty and wild. The Price (£40.35) is also not too high, and you get a chance to sample some PC, Octomore and laddie in one.
Norrie, this wee dram is in your honor!

- a truly three-dimensional, completely satisfying drop; what else do you want for the daily dram?
Already at the opening and pouring, promising scents of fragrance give an idea of upcoming well-being. Although the nose is enshrouded in powerful, smoky-phenolic aspects, it also treats fruity parts (apple, pear), rounded off with honey and some menthol.
wide, honey, candle wax, ashes, phenol (all in a balanced range)
warm, not in the least burning; reviewing all previous aspects; additional pepper and fine vanilla in the background
- A great dram!
Rich aromas of smoke and peat with citrus, toffee, apple, vanilla and dried apricots
A full character with a pronounced taste of peat, smoke and citrus complemented by flower-like tones and vanilla
A powerful aftertaste of lemon and lime with a clear presence of smoke
