  2. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    I like it in its overall calmness with the sometimes rather special note just wonderful.
    • Nose
      interesting, almost cool nose, some mint, light peat, a subtle mustiness, absolutely no alcohol that stings in the nose, but this slightly cheesy, sweaty note is also special.
    • Taste
      soft, sweet and salty, then a bitter oak note, a surprisingly herbaceous bitterness, a little cotton candy still remains in the background.
    • Finish
      first a little herbaceous bitterness, then nice peat, a pleasant smoky tart mouthfeel remains.

    The 1st ever bottling from Bruihladdich to contain Octomore.

  8. molar3rd scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    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?
    • Nose
      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.
    • Taste
      wide, honey, candle wax, ashes, phenol (all in a balanced range)
    • Finish
      warm, not in the least burning; reviewing all previous aspects; additional pepper and fine vanilla in the background

    An exceptional Bruidladdich consisting of 3 different malts, Bruichladdich, Port Charlotte and Octomore. The Bruichladdich 3D3 Norrie Campbell is a tribute to the famous Whisky connoisseur.

  17. mmaclean did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    "An excellent Bruichladdich, this 3D3 was produced as a tribute to the

    well-loved Islay peat-cutter Norrie Campbell, who passed away in 2006.

    3D3 contains three malts - Bruichladdich, Port Charlotte and Octomore -

    at three different ages, and is the most heavily-peated of the 3D

    releases."

    This whisky is so intense and wonderful that I will
    not be trying anything else tonight. And it is less than 50 EUR? I daresay,
    this one is recommended.
    • Nose


      It is no surprise that you get a nose full of peat.
      But once past it, I also get candlewax, a light scent of stable and thyme.
      Underlying also quite a bit of coffee and toffee, lime and apple and finally
      some marzipan. I
      am pleasantly surprised by this complexity.
    • Taste


      On the palate, it is again the peat that demands your
      attention first, with ashes and greasy coal. It is immediately followed by a
      surprisingly sweet twist of toffee. Feisty on black and red peppers. This is
      good!
    • Finish


      The finish, which is a perfect continuation of the
      palate, is very long. Memorable!

  19. Lafroy scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Green apples with peat, pears and smoke, freshness and sweetness. Nose is somewhere between Bruichladdich and Port Charlotte. A lot of fresh peat and leafs.
    • Taste
      It starts with light bitterness, goes to sweetness with hot sensation in palate, peat sweetness, light sourness, sea saltiness, pears in marinade, grilled fish. Also dark cold coffee with milk in
    • Finish
      Long, semidry and very hot.

  20. Roel scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Good 3D3 bottling on sweet and peaty variations, but no peat monster. My favourite from the 3D series thus far.
    • Nose
      Strong and sweet peat dominate the nose at first. Then vegetal sulphery notes (farn, moss, tea) and Japanes Bonito stock. Some vegetable skin.
    • Taste
      Very spicy with peat and Bonito returning together with some seaweed and quite some salt. Also lemon peper (reminds me of Ardbeg).
    • Finish
      Medium to long finish, balanced and sweet hints
